I just finished this bark carving and I wanted to add something to it. I was sawing walnut logs a while back and becuase I have the wood hoaders illness I had saved a few slabs of seconds cuts off the logs. I knew I would use them but I had no idea for what ( that is the first sign of the sickness) I decided to combine two things I enjoy, wood carving, and sawmilling into this. I gave the carving to a friend that owns a big sawmill and took these pictures on the road trip to visit him lastweek so they are not the greatest photo’s. Which may make the carving look better I am not sure.
