Barking Mad

I am following up my design idea to use a log complete with bark as my final product. I feel this way, i can learn the possible flaws with using a log...

The difficulties of using a log are as follows:
  1. How dried the log is and needs to get. If it is too damp, i can't work it and if it gets too dry too quickly it will produce massive cracks.
  2. If i cut a parallel line, it can be moved as the log is always moving and changing.
  3. the bark will probably fall off....
  4. needs to be hollowed out
  5. needs to contain electrical components
I have a tough challenge ahead!
