Carved from red cedar driftwood. Very tight grained ancient wood. Incredible fun wood to work with!

Nice carving, if I didn’t know any better I would have thought they were real.

Okay, I understand the carving is an art form… but how the heck do you do that…..????..... It’s like you’re the “Wood-Medusa”; like you chuck some fish at a log and stare at them… and turn them into sto…... errrr, wood.

Amazing work.

Beautiful work Steve. There is nothing like the smell of fresh cut cedar is there? (Except port orford cedar) I built a deck out of it, and just love the smell of the stuff! Very nice carving. Just like all your work.
