This is a project made from cottonbark. A lighted Gnome home. This time I added a bridge and just carved all kinds of neat things. I used Dreft first then a Waco coating for the finish. Thanks for looking.

Thanks all for the nice comments. I don’t time my carvings and just getting back it did take a few days to get this completed. But there is so much one can add it’s hard to stop!
