Tree Carving Resumes....

 At least for today and tomorrow.

Trevor is almost finished, and the next few days will be devoted to finishing it up, burning in some details, and then slathering the whole tree in boiled linseed oil to seal and preserve the wood.



The new figure is another owl. He started roughing in a squirrel, was a pretty far along on it, and the trunk split along a line he was worried about. So, we another owl instead of a squirrel.


Christmas Eve aftermath.....

    1. He's putting a lot of detail into this one, as it'll be one of his "portfolio" pieces. Chainsaw Mama will do (or have done) anything you want, but it costs. Our guy wanted to get an internship with her, but he told us he didn't think he'd be instructed by her, as it turns out she has a couple of crews working for her.

      This should be done in the next week or so, weather permitting.

  3. That looks great. Yard art and an antenna support all in one! The boiled linseed oil should make it look great as well as protect it. My grandfather used it to finish some furniture and pianos that he rebuilt.

    1. We're gonna get clipped with snow Monday night, so I'm not sure how much he'll be able to get done this week.

    1. We had The Kids and our Little Guy over on Christmas Eve for dinner and some unwrapping. Christmas Day we went up to Cheyenne for the family gift exchange and another (BURP!) big dinner.

      Next up: 4th birthday for the grandson in March!
