Holes with radius 0.25mm to 1mm. Distance between holes vary 1-1.5mm. The tunnels go fairly straight downward, but its difficult to visualize an entire tunnel. Found in pile of excavated stone from the lakes formation. They dug the lake as a flood management project through the Sac River. In short, the rock was dug from an old river bed to make room for a lake. I looked for any other rock that had the same markings and found none.

well...me neither. But I can't explain what else could have caused fairly symmetrical openings straight through a piece of rock..

I think, now that Ive researched this for 20hours, I've come up with a possible ID: PALM? I read where the midwest actually has several petrified wood or petrified palm species. IDK...And I haven't been able to get one fossil expert to give me a clue...I like it and it makes a cool conversation piece.
