Might help if you photographed with a tape measure or ruler so that potential customers would have an idea of scale. Some might prefer it is a few small branches were left in place!

They all must like getting drenched Keith. :?

I was joking when I said it could be a new line of business, it wasn`t much of a pleasure, but I did it for a friend whose idea & tree this was.

As discussed here at length previously, I believe there is a, ahem, specialist market for this type of product. You can't be fussy about customers in a recession...

True, but being turned from green wood it`s more pliant & less prone to splinter :?

Actually, I think you have the Sphincter-Niche spot on.
