This is an alder root I found a while ago. It was in a kind of boggy area and had gone sideways a bit, exposing the roots. It looked like it would make a good nose out market stick/crook. Going to try the heat gun on it to squeeze up the bent area a little bit more. Might try an angled joint. Decided to remove the bark to show off the flow of the grain.

Thanks, guys.

@ Valky The ground here is a thin layer of topsoil on top of hard clay. Pretty crappy for gardening but ideal for exposed tree roots and saplings with roots which make good cane handles.

I must admit after all these years I have not considered harvesting tree roots! I've used deadwood, live wood, drift wood and water logged wood but not roots. I reckon I just might have to look into that! Thanks! (y)
