Re: [Marlboro_Raceway] Oak tree
- Thank you Mike,
I had previously sent the following:
I'd suggest that the trunk and major limbs be saved and converted to lumber. From there, sell it off as planks in plaque sizes and hopefully develop a brand to be burned into the back of each piece so it acquires a provenance. I'd enjoy just having a suitable piece as a reminder, and would make it into a keepsake ... the possibilities abound. Let the individuals determine their proper use and do the finish work.
I'd hope the trunk wasn't rotted from inside. I'd think that much more could be made from selling it in small pieces than any piece of furniture.
