Hello LJ! I have been away for awhile. This is an Elephant I started about 4 months ago, It took so long to finsh because my saw broke and I had to wait on my taxes to get a new one. I changed alot on this Elephant from the trunk being 3 peices to the wood choices. I really love how it turned out. I took extra time putting detail into the face to make the eye stand out and adding the muscles into the legs. I hope you like it. Great to be back guys.

Michael, I am so sorry to be so late in seeing this! I have missed so many postings (busy busy!) and yours was one. So I dropped by to see what you have been up to and wala! An elephant! I am sorry to hear about the death of your saw. But glad to see you have been able to make some sawdust!
