Made this fellow out of a chunk of heart pine. Some band sawing followed by freehand carving with my formica router and dremel tool.

This recession finally forced me to ditch my internet connection, so i can’t check in as often as i like. Sure do miss my lumberjocks!

Great looking Piece. Sand it, finish it, sell it and get your internet connection back! At first look I thought it WAS a real cow skull, super

That’s cool Miles! I’ve been thinking along those lines and mount some select antlers on a wood skull. Looks good…..................

Miles,
You should have said something, I could have sent you one and saved you some work.

Nice job.

Say it ain’t so buddy. That is one great piece of work. I too was fooled when I saw it. I thought wtf is someone putting a cow head on here for. Then realized it was a fakeroo, you got me with that one. Nice job though.. Like the man said, sell it and more and get back on the net and back here to the jocks that love you.

I thought your carving was the genuine article as well. Nice piece of art you have created Miles125. Here is hoping for a speedy return of your internet.
