It started with a rotting tree down the street from my Mother-In Law. I took a couple of large trunk chunks and cleaned out all the soft spongy wood, then it hit me I would create a diarama of sorts, a Hobbits Home. Well I began working with hand tools and some air grinders, but became flustered. I sat it aside to think on how to proceed. My wife loves to decorate and she didn’t have anything for St Patrick’s day for a table setting. She ask if I could turn a bowl for her so she could have a “Pot of Gold”, I grabbed a 9”Dia limb I had in my stack and turned a very basic bowl, she didnt want it all polished so it only got a rough sanding, painted it black and gave it to her. She saw the tree stump and claimed it for her setting and there yea go. The wee people have a place to hide there gold and we can share in the loot.
Happy St Patrick’s Day to all.
