I love the contrast between the smooth inside and the rough bark outside! That is really an awesome piece and very talented on your part to be able to produce. How did you know when the wood was dry enough to begin? Doesn’t the bark tend to fall off as the log dries?

Excellent!!

Thank you so much!
There are a lot of things on this issue.
Not every wood bark are suitable for this type of carving.
Boxwood is a great case.
I have a rule not to use wood that is not dry for at least five years in shadow!
Never dry in the sun and in the dryers.

As i promised, today i will upload on my blog a video showing the technology of my work.
I want to apologize for the poor quality and lack of sound, but this is the best of my camera.
