So you split that wood, flattened it, the did the relief carving seen in the second pic? Impressive. More details? What do those parts become?

There appear to be tenons, but I don’t see any mortises.

re: Buckethead
yes, the legs (which will get the mortises) need to dry a little more before they will turn well. if you are interested in this type of work read ” Make a Joint Stool from a Tree” by Jennie Alexander and Peter Follansbee. and if you haven’t yet also read all of the woodwright’s series by Roy Underhill.

the completed project should come out looking somewhat like this one made by Peter Follansbee
