This is a stump of honey lotus, since it was a crotch piece i wanted to make it double headed from the get go. The spacing was tricky as even with the Tiny 12 inch carving bar there was very little room to maneuver. The pictures don’t really do the base of the piece justice as when it is sitting in front of you It just flows so well.
I finished it with several coats of Watco, Dark walnut and Cherry, then clear coated it with Spar-urethane.

Great idea ! Way to carry it out . I did a single shroom out of a 28” diameter red oak stump. I couldn’t afford to have it ground up so I shaped it and treated it with waterlox wood preservative. Big & silly, but it looks a hell of a lot better than a stump left to rot. Now it is a big mushroom left to rot. I like yours better ! don s.
