Sandblasted Redshank is under-appreciated. It has a finish like that of Sandblasted Manzanita Branches, a nice "branchy" look, and best of all, the 6-7 foot size can ship via FedEx, keeping the overall cost reasonable.

It can be very difficult to make an impact in a space as big as this one, but the Sandblasted Redshank does a spectacular job.
