A branch’s grain

IMG_3216

IMG_3215 In this section of ornamental cherry branch, a couple of branches branched off resulting in this grain pattern. No wonder it didn’t split easily. I decided to try to turn it into a triangle foot stand for playing classical guitar, so in the first picture you see a triangle created with an architect’s square (with 60 degrees at the marker’d point). I stood the log on its sawed end (supposedly flat) and continued the lines down the side for saw reference–again using the square. In the second picture the sawed side faces the camera in all its glory. Because the triangle faces are so small, I will probably use dowel joints instead of gouging into them for something fancy like dovetails or mortise and tenon.
