This is a project I completed 12 to 15 years ago. This was supposed to be split in half and hollowed out to fit around a steel column in my basement but the basement flooded during a terrific thunderstorm so that idea was scrapped. When we moved to Florida I gave this to my brother and he finally got around to putting it up in his living room. He cut a groove in the log and placed it over the seam where 2 walls came together at an angle in the center of the living room. I have not seen it since he put it up so I may not be describing it exactly right.
This was a very fun project for me. I was self employed as a welder and while I was waiting for a bid to come through I did this project in about 40 hours. The bid came through right after I finished this log carving. I sculpted grooves on each shell in the shape of a fan.
I wish I was still in the shape I was when this picture was taken! :-)
