Future Vision

After the tree has been shaped, a process that could take a year or two, it is then a matter of time and patience. Waiting while the branches thicken, and the tree matures, before finally harvesting the piece and letting it season and dry. Finally, the piece is planed to show off the wood and the grain of the tree it came from.
