Strange shavings *PIC* ()

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
The drawer front that made these plastic looking shavings was cut from the end of a board that will be part of the top, which in turn was cut from the first log of this tree, butt end.

When I cut this tree I hoped to get some stump grain, curly, however, didn't. I peeled the bark and dirt back and cut it at ground level, or slightly below. Maybe something about wood near the roots made this unusual wood.
