the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out ...

wormy recycled chestnut ... i love it ... we're currently working on three or four projects where we will be using it ... a snatch of a childhood song came to mind today as we were cutting a log that will be used for a mantle in one of those upcoming projects .... when we cut it to length, we happened to hit on an 'extra wormy' cross section. for some reason, you can see the tracks where the worms went in and then round and round in the log ... i've never noticed it before, and i thought it was cool enough to share ... kind of made me think of a brice marden painting ... click the photos to enlarge them ..
the mantle log .. 7 x 9 x 72"
