Here is a very light colored, gracefully kinky poplar staff. It stands 71-1/2" tall and the shaft ranges in diameter (and width) from 1-1/4" to 2-1/2". The root mass occupies a space of 8" by 8" by 5" tall. The roots doe have some small patches of decay starting but the staff is sound. This was harvested and stripped on 7/16/21 and eleven days later it weighs 3# 13ozs. When fully seasoned it will lose a lot more weight. Poplar takes stain well as a uniform color. It also carves easily. Use it as is or customize it, just don't seal it until it is fully dry.(ufws81) Update: this is well seasoned
