This piece is a hand carved, oversize, acorn, in butternut wood. Sitting in it’s base it is 5 inches high. The acorn is 6 1/2 inches long and 4 inches diameter. The acorn cap has a slight stain to be darker than the acorn. The base is a contoured piece of paduk wood. The finish on both pieces is a clear, gloss, polyurethane. The acorn part shows the beautiful grain of butternut.

Thanks to all for the comments. Sorry I can’t respond, but something’s wierd with my page where the link to the ‘comments’ doesn’t work. I’m not being antisocial. It’s a broken link. Not sure how to fix it….Justin

very cool looking carving. I like the contrast between the smooth shiny bottom highlighting the butternut grain and the rough texture of the top of the acorn.

Beautiful, and well executed carving. I never cease to be amazed at the level of talent here on LJ’s.
