On Oct 5, 2014 at 4 pm the Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur will auction off approximately one dozen old-growth coastal redwood slabs.

These absolutely unique and stunningly beautiful large slabs came from a 200-foot, 500-year old tree that unexpectedly fell on the Library property on December 2, 2012.

Proceeds will help create a sustainable financial future for the Library, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit community arts center.

Photos cannot do the wood justice. However the photo below gets close to capturing the extraordinary depth and beauty of pattern this tree has yielded.
