My single tree is about to become a forest and with some friends, we decided to drive for picnic. I created a smaller tree and photographed new pictures with some cars of my collection. It is the fun I enjoy.

Your having fun Sam, the burls make great looking trees, like the cars and hope the picnic went OK.
Good to get away from the serious wood working and have a laugh. Thanks for showing your creations.

It looks like you are having fun Sam.
And in the end, that’s all that matters.
This came out nice.

First, it’s a great piece Sam!
Second My first car when I left home was a VW Beetle, almost the same colour. It was a great car.
