It seems like someone’s always cutting a tree down. This carving is from my neighbor’s Apple tree. Apple is a very hard and heavy wood, which is great for carving fine details.
This is from a crotch turned upside down, creating almost ready made shoulders.
He’s 13” tall, by 10” wide at the base.
I used the darkest stain I could find for his hair, Maacasar Walnut, & light walnut for his face. The body is natural.
