I agree with handsmadeforwood about wanting more pictures….and an explanation of how you achieved the contrast between the carved figures and the old wood. Is it just fresh wood vs. weathered wood? In any case, you’ve got an eye-popping pole there. Thanks for posting.

Can you supply more pictures and an explanation how you did it? I am redundant to other posters, I know.

Nice carving Steve. Wonderful contrast with flowing lines that also blend with your window trim. Then your main pole base blends with the siding, well done Steve!!!!!!!!!!!
