I have never been sure if this guy was going to, or coming from, the outhouse. With his serious look, and dropping britches, I say going to. He will have many amenities in there. A copy of Sears Roebuck’s last year catalog, Extra paper, and a jug of ”mountain medicine ”tucked in the corner. His presence has caused the resident “S**t house rat” to sneak out along the fence line. The wood chopping block is ready for use if the ax can be pulled from the stump. But being in his BUNNY slippers tells me he isn’t there to chop any wood just now. Carved from Basswood, and some scrap wood around the shop created the diorama. Thanks for looking, Doug

You’re an amazing carver hunter. This gave me a chuckle as well. Lotsa gr8 details, like always.

Very good looking “dunnie” or “thunder box” as we’d say in Australia…

A “long drop” is another term, from New Zealand….

A place that one must never forget to do the paperwork…...

All joking aside Doug, you have certainly created a good fun piece of woodwork art….
