If it quacks like a duck…..

The annual rings and the faceted surface lend a texture that mimics the real McCoy.  All that blackening and numerous coats of shellac may pay off in the end.  A little rubbing out to knock down the reflectivity, then a little waxing to increase the luster…

Whether you call it a Duck’s, Drake’s or a Gander’s foot, these critters are still part of the Trifid species.  And a rare species it is.
