Just finished this beautiful piece for Delirium Cafe USA, new bar in town. Their logo is a elephant, some are familiar with it. I am now!

I reached out to them curious if they would like a carving. After a month here is the final results. Very happy with the way she came to life.

Wood is silver maple, a tree across from my high school that was over 150 yrs young. Got struck by lightning and here we are.

Best thing about what I create is that the tree gets to live a whole new life.

Wow that’s just great! Truly a work of art. I’m glad you posted the last pic. It gave the piece scale and made it even more impressive.

Your work is awesome. Your viewpoint of the tree living on is awesome also.

to put this into perspective, i looked at this and said “mmhhnn very nice”, then noticed this is all end grain, knowing what a pain in the butt that is when i realized that, I had to call my wife in to show it off, then we got the the 5th and 6th pic that shows its size and my jaw dropped, absolutely speechless. One carver to another, I tip my hat to you, absolutely amazing, hopefully the lumberjocks editors pick up on how much work that had to be and choose this for an editors choice. very nice.

That is awesome. It led me to look at your other projects and I like this one best, by far.

The Delirium should be delirious.
