My projects just seem to be getting bigger and bigger. This one was a pretty good sized juniper log. It stands about 30in. tall. It has a lot of worm holes in it and still has some bark left on it. Finished with boiled linseed oil and wipe on poly.

I think that looks pretty good. I think it would look better in my yard though.

Thanks all. You can also check out my Old Man in the sea carving. I added a couple pics of it now that it’s finished.
