    Imagine coming upon that scene, an idle Mustang, shards of wood underneath said crowd-eater, and three men in labcoats examining said pieces of wood in the middle of the culdesac. Oh the things you see in Florida

    Perhaps turning the wood on a Lathe first and then consider hollowing the shaft with a few support bands around the exterior like a barrel.
