The Most Bizzare Pieces Of Wood

I don't know about you, but, I get a kick out of finding cool pieces of wood for a tank. My daughter and I went to a nearby creek today and collected some cool pieces of wood. The bumber part was that she was stung by a bee. All is well though. So, here is the most wicked looking piece of wood I ever found. It may end up in my 60p. I think it needs teeth. What do you think?
What's the coolest piece of wood you have in your tank? Feel free to post up some pics!!

If you don't carve teeth into that, I will find where you live and break it in half.

Man your cruel and a stalker, lol. Interesting piece I must say. I hope that the black crude is not oil though. What ever it is, if it doesn't come off, you may not want to risk that being in a tank.

I should have taken some pics before cutting it down. I had to cut it into three pieces to use this part in my 75 gallon tank. also one of the harder pieces to work as I could find no good place to use a power saw until I finally broke out a chainsaw. Really old tough piece of black walnut.
For smaller tanks where 6 inches is better, I like this:

The claw!



I always thought this would make a nice little "tree" for plants but I have to admit, I have never used it since putting it on the slate.

Throw some moss on there and call it a day! That would make an excellent tree

King Kong, that there is some talent! Hahah!! I like it! I was thinking of some way to add waterproof LED lights for eyes.

Neontetras4me, the last pic looks like your driftwood is walking away. Very cool piece!

I love this one. It has center piece written all over it. It has branches, cubbies and character all in one. What are the dimension of it.
