new privet

So far I did not have a decent privet (Ligustrum vulgare) in my collection. At Noelanders Trophy I fund this one which was on for a silent auction over the weekend. Some big names showed interest. In the end it turned out that I was the highest bidder.
This tree apparently was cut of of an English hedge many years ago. It was styled by an English amateur who unfortunately has passed away.
I hope I can do justice to this heritage. At the moment my plan is to fit it somehow onto this very interesting piece of wood. We'll see and report in April.

will you treat the wood of the base with a hardener, or allow it to gracefully decay?
