This would be fun to work with.......unique coloring.
Its bark sheds a layer several times each year and another beautiful layer is revealed.

What would you make with it?

+1 with Nick's comment. What kind of tree is that?

Does the colouring extend to the core? Do you have a cross section of a limb to see what it looks like inside??

No way I'd cut that thing down, its too beautiful for that. Beside that, if it is Eucalyptus, it will likely warp like mad because that tree's grain spirals and anything you make with it will warp, split and deteriorate rapidly.
