« Part 2: Shared Beauty 11 - 17 - 2006 Part 3 of Events at our cabin! series Part 4: Building a New Deck, 1988 »

In the fall of 2005, I built a small deck area between our cabin, & a little multi- purpose toolshed, & Barb’s Library. I had cut down a tall Tamarack tree that was blocking our satellite signal. Being that I hate wasting wood, I built a railing on the deck. Then I decided to carve something, so I chose this Bear.
Click for details The Tamarack was green so it carved pretty nice. The heart wood was dark, it gave the Bear a nice background. Barb was taking snaps of me carving, so I made this short Video.

this is WONDERFUL!
Again, being able to see a creation unfold is very powerful. It is also great to see the process “first hand”.
(love the music accompanying the photos!!)
Thank you for posting

I moved some things around on my picasa, & it changed the coding, so the link code changed. It’s OK now.
