That sure is a beautiful piece of wood.Congratulations, and thanks for showing.
-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thanks everybody, Todd I don’t think so because of the briwax but I’m not positive on that. Chrisstef, I’ve had this chunk of wood for a couple years and never could decide what to do with it as it was a weird shape when I got it. I think it came from North Carolina but not sure on that either.

that looks great..
interested in how dry the wood was before you started to carve it.
Also did you dry it and if so how did you dry it..

Tony the blank was sealed with anchor seal when I got it. Don’t know what the mc% was then but I kept it put up for a couple years so I know it was good n dry when I carved it. If it’s drying methods you’re looking for you can search it here in the forums and find way more accurate and useful information than I can give you. I I’ve been sealing and saving wood for a few years now and keep adding to so I have a pretty good rotation of dry wood. And, I’ve carved some things still dripping wet because I didn’t mind if it warped or cracked a little.haha. Sorry I haven’t really helped in answering your question buddy.
