Hello again Lumberjocks…it’s been a while since I’ve had something to post! It’s been nice this past week to get in some shop time :) With this project done, I’m looking forward to moving on to my next one…just need to decide what to tackle next, lol!

This is my newest creation…I’m calling it Mother Nature for lack of a better name.

As all my pieces are, this too was hand carved. It’s done in Alder with a small inlay of walnut for her eye. It measures approximately 9×9

Thanks for looking, and all feedback positive or constructive is appreciated! :)

Thanks everyone :) Druid- the walnut inlay for the eye was rather good a suggestion from my BF that I decided would be a pretty cool idea. I’m glad I went with it!
