These look like they could be bundled together to make some cool stuff.









and this is the layout that I'm considering the most seriously.

I've been waiting for slightly warmer weather to do the same. Awesome driftwood.

In terms of design, the one with the two long trunks coming out of the roots is much stronger, but the root bundle one just seems like it would be nice.

Because of this post I decided to make a quick run to my local stream, and found a couple of good pieces of driftwood, but nowhere near your pieces lol.

Took me forever to actually decide. My wife agreed that the chaotic one would make a cool mantle piece, so I went with the two trunks.
