This walnut wood creation, created by Richard Wirtz, a local wood craftsman, was fashioned from a walnut tree struck by lightning many years ago, but survived for many more years on my property. When finally removed, I contacted Mr. Wirtz to inquire if he wanted logs from the tree. He did, and a few years later, he presented Helping Hands in the Garden with this beautiful wood creation. Mr. Wirtz created these to be given as gifts to the people we assist. Thank you Richard.
