there is a maple tree in my grandmothers back yard. i used to climb it all the time when i was growing up. i thought how cool would it be to have a bass built out of the wood. (she's having it cut down) kinda like the wonder bat from the movie the natural! has anyone done something like this? is it even possible. i'm sure it depends on how big the tree is and there is probably a year or so drying time with the wood. anyway... just thought it would be wild to have a bass like that. p.s. if this is in the wrong forum, please move it.
