I thought this crotch piece was very unique with the "split personality" color pattern. Elm trees are very common here and often just die from beetles that get to them so I get a lot of elm to turn. The color can vary a lot Sometimes it can all be dark or dark heartwood with light sapwood or all light in color. The bark inclusion goes all the way through so a fair amount of CA needed to keep it together while drying. 10" x 3".
