Found on the river bank today. I suspect it’s older due to the mortise tenon holes. Some still practice this type of work but the piece appears older.

Just thought it was neat and would post. I left it laying because I didn’t feel like carrying it out. Lol.

I catch a bit of crap because I drag stuff like that home but you can’t beat a unique piece for a project.

Lol I understand. Regretfully I left it laying but hid it in bushes just in case.

When I lived in New Orleans and was renovating old houses any piece of wood I pulled out like that went home with me and eventually got used somewhere else. Out here I'm building new houses and there's just nothing worth keeping. I that one's been in the water a while it's probably beautiful inside
