Here is another half dozen birch mushrooms for gifts for the in laws. I made these before coffee one morning.
They look real when buried in the mulch around the trees!!
No sanding…no finish…just fun turning…........Jim

very fun – I would love to see a few of those peeking out of my garden. The fact that they are different sizes and shapes is what makes them real!

What a cheeky fun idea! I’d love to make some of these for my mother and wife’s flower beds.

Hi Lewis. They take about 15 min apiece. I bought a 3/8 bedan last year and I love it. I can cut the center down with it in less than a minute. It really hogs off wet wood!!

Hi buddy,
They are lovely, the birch edge makes them so wonderful alive.
Best thoughts,
