Long story short, I collected this beast before I had any clue what I was doing, and I’m now left to deal with my mistakes. I have this cut, but I’m not sure the best way to smooth over the obvious hole left where I used a Sawzall to initially flatten the bottom and shave off the sides to fit into a container that I had.
Would using something like epoxy to fill the holes and possibly like a light colored stain (or anything similar) to help gloss over the cut? I keep thinking I’m crazy and there is no way to do this, but then follow that with a “Sure someone else has done this, there has to be a way. We can bend trunks”
