If it is in fact Fig, I'm one lucky guy. We just moved my in-laws to a retirement community and my father in law was a master when it came to wood creations. As we were packing everything I was asked to go into his shop and get all his stuff organized for the estate sale. I found a limb off a tree I couldn't ID so the next time I saw him I asked what it was and he told me it was a Fig limb from their Fig tree. Both ends waxed so hopefully not much checking. Now you have my hopes up!

Yours may be beautiful--but mine was a weak joke, with FIG being an acronym for Found In Garage!! (or FIB--Found in Box). Hope i didn't get your hopes up in vain!! (i have some lilac branches i cut last year--another year and i'll get to see if it's as cool looking as i thought it might be as i cut it!!)

You got me on that one. I was a bit "foggy" yesterday after spending most of the day replacing the battery in the snow plow then plowing my road. Not fun, cold, wind blowing, drifts all over the place. I think I now know what a popsicle feels like.
