This one is live oak with a buffed finish and it’s on a temp. base.
35”x9” with a 16” curve.
It was carved green last summer and allowed to season over the winter.

Cool looking sculpture! Can we have more details on what you used to carve on this piece? I like it!

I used a Arbortech Pro, it does a great job on green hardwood.
I all so use a 40 grit 7” disk on the mini grinder (12k), tho not recommend cause these disk are 6k rpm,
their the red ones at the hardware store, they are used to clean metal put they eat wood.

I really like how you managed to make this flutter in the wind. It has a lot of movement and the simplicity of the natural wood is beautiful.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I like that. Now where should we put it? I want to TOUCH it. :) It is quite amazing that it didn’t suffer a catastophic split since it was carved green. Did you douse in in olive oil or what did you do to prevent the checking?

That reminds me I need to look at it again. I haven’t had a lot of problem with Live oak since I follow the nature curves.
It does need another buffing and a new home.
