You all likely saw the little giraffes a few days ago.. this is the big one. The little ones went over so well I decided to push it a little and I had this slab just waiting. It is ten inches wide, so that’s how wide I made it. It’s about 22” tall and 6/4.
I’m not entirely certain what kind of wood it is. The person who gave it to me (and who milled it from his property) claimed it to be oak, and it was very heavily weathered so I wasn’t sure. Obviously it is not. Didn’t smell like anything in particular and doesn’t quite look like anything I’ve worked with before. But it sure is pretty! :)
We’ll see if I do any more of these on a BIG scale… they aren’t really worth the profit margin, sadly. (It took a long time to carve) But it was really fun and quite beautiful.
