The stand pictured here is not finished yet but I was so happy with the grain on the surface of the stand I thought I show some pictures regardless.

I've tidied this Chinese Elm up today before putting it away for the winter. As I was photographing the Walnut root stand I thought I'd take a picture of the Elm and root stand together.
