Here is a strange tortured Beech staff creepy looking and all. Beech is a dense hardwood that is disappearing in our region. This staff stands 71" tall and the shaft varies in diameter from 1" to 2". Much of the length was girdled at a young age so there are patches of live,dead and scarred areas coexisting. There is also a base branch that is just as scarred that I left it long so you have more options. The actual roots are really sparse and small on top, but with the big zig-zag they occupy a space of 7" by 10" by 12" tall. Don't blame me for the shape, in this case less is more. On 8/5/21 (after being stripped for two weeks) it weighs about 4# 5 ozs. It'll dry more so don't seal it until such time.(ufws100) Update: it is well seasoned

Staff was as shown in the pictures. I can't wait to start on it for my costume project!
