This was made from a chunk of cedar that my neighbor gave me!
I took the chunk and cut it into two pieces and then cut one down
to fit my band saw and glued the pattern on and had to re-design it to
fit the chunk of wood I had. After cutting and tons of shaping whoop
there it is! haha!

Slowly but surely it is finished!

Thank you for your time
