Wonderful carving. Squirrel was hidden in the stump, the artist in both of you was needed to expose her by removing the unwanted wood. Great job.

Now that’s cool. Stumps can be a real bother sometimes and this is the best way I’ve seen to deal with them. Very slick.

Who was it that said when sculpting just chip away anything that doesn’t look like the subject. Makes sense to me.

Excellent carving!
Maybe I can cut down one of my trees while my wife isn’t looking and try my hand at carving.

Cool, did you put some finish on it. I have no idea what would happen if you finished something still planted.
