This is the first tree and bear carving that I have done since the second shop fire. I’ve got everything I need to make sawdust. The new shop is coming along. Waiting on the electrician and the siding. Then drywall, paint and set the shop up! I’ve included an update on the shop progress.

I call this carving “Dance like no one’s Watching ”. The carving depicts a steady old Fir Tree passing it’s time in woodland peace on the edge of this deep ravine. Boo and Betty Bear just love their home in the woods. These two love birds celebrate their lives together every moment of their lives. All they need to know is what to do next and to love their lives and the lives that they encounter together. There is a lot of detail in this carvings. I love the over all shape of this piece. I don’t see oval shapes very often. There is something special about it to me.

This piece measures 22” tall x 8 1/4” wide x 1 1/2” thick.

And I included a picture of my new Wizuki Beach Mobile. Now I have something to harvest some driftwood in!! Woohoo!!

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Sweet! I’m the most impressed by the trees. How do you make the detail so fine on the branches? It looks super tiny and realistic!
