Memorial Day Weekend Project

Started this project with some of that amazing cottonwood bark from Canada. It carves so sweet. I am taking my time as I don’t want to mess up this great piece of bark.  I am continuing to push myself forward to learn more and get better at carving.

What are you carving?

Do you love cottonwood bark.

I carved this for a friend who gave me a Zune 32 gig. I found a wormy spot in the beard which made it brittle and discolored.  Carving butternut is great though. I wish I had gone deeper in the wood and popped the face out more.  He loved it.
