This is a piece of drift wood I found I know not where. I’ve had it for a couple of years and several months ago I tried carving my first gnome home. Not sure where those second stairs are really going.
I was needing a project I could work with in the house as the shop is unbearable in the summer heat. So I brought this in. Perhaps the wood deserved better but it was fun and I’m kinda pleased with the overall result.
All images were hand drawn and not traced. I only have a cheapo wood burner and I’m just learning painting so its not up to the quality of most of the work on this site but I like it and I hope others do too.
There are two “in progress” photos and the rest are the finished item.
I don’t really have a good place for taking pictures so you gets what I could mock up. <g>
The “finish” is a wood floor sealer and two coats of carnuba wax with only the high points buffed.

Looks cool and will look good standing alone in a corner for accent or in an umbrella stand by the door.
