Special thanks to the inspiration I found from lumberjock Scott Shangraws projects. (http://lumberjocks.com/shangrila)
I started with a half round chunk of juniper fire wood. A few hours of carving with a chainsaw, then my angle grinder with a round chainsaw attachment, and finally a 40 grit flap wheel grinder and here is what I have.
I used my dremel tool to route out any cracks, and added a few more lines as my mind saw fit to add some stone inlays for both something interesting to look at and as function to hide/stabilize any cracks.
Thanks for checking this out. More updates soon!
