|Hoppy||Putting anubias under the "wings" in the shade might look good, and the shade would help protect the anubias leaves from BBA.|

|Zorfox||It looks pretty cool. Functionally, I would worry about the top piece blocking light to anything under it though. It seems like it could create a nifty multi level planting effect though. Planting attached pieces on the top surface and mosses and other very low light plants underneath may look interesting.|

|JAYGEE||Very nice!! I never would have thought about drilling and using the little dowel rod things to connect them.|

OMG your right o.O As a Closet trekkie it must have been subconsciously done!!!
I actually had in mind the montipora coral, but never mind, It will look better in the tank..lol :\ its gonna have moss tied to it the top too...

It looks like the starship Enterprise made out of driftwood???
really I think it will be great underwater with plants and whatnot. dry and sitting on a chair doesn't do it justice I'm sure

So ive got some more finishing, final fix and cure for 24hrs then another 48hrs for a soak then i can get it in the tank, but this is what it looks like so far. What do you think???

Now these Lengths are 20" ish the wont fit in the 15 inch bowfront which means more wonky sawing!
offcut will serve as a foot
connecting the two top pieces

All neurons firing... what if....
both ends of this wood are rough sawn (and not straight oops!)
and I really wanted a more natural effect no cut marks more dimension!
So out comes drill, dremel, pliers and chisel, time to rough it up!!
