Southern Ontario and northern New York State see this wood all the time. Just think of your last trip in the country,do you remember the farmers field lined with large stumps well thats a scrub red cedar good for nothing except marking boundries and driftwood planters.For all others you will have to use the real thing. need more instructions just tell me.

Much better. I can see how you have done it now just a shame there are no red cedars anywhere near me. I will be beach combing on holiday though. I love them and my sempervivums would look fabulous in one of those.

Can it be any tree stump then? I thought you had mentioned Red Cedar as it might not rot so quickly. I have a sensory garden to plant up for a charity and I thought one of these as a living sculpture would look fantastic and also be cheap as I try to beg, steal or borrow all I can for them.

Thanks Bill. I will post a picture (prob next year!) when I have done it. I haven't even finished the design of the sensory garden yet let alone started planting anything.

Well, looks like a trip to the swamps is in order for some cypress driftwood, those are fabulous.
