I saw this ad in our local Kijiji and thought some you woodcarvers might get kick out it,I’m not a woodcarver so I don’t know how long it would take from start to finish to carve something like that
Here’s the description:
Olde Grand Trunk is a 2000 Lbs White Pine Log carved into a Lumberjack . Features a Double Bit Axe , Heavy Logging Boots , and a Possibles Bag with Hand Carved Maple Leafs . Very nice piece of Canadiana for your Home , Business or Cottage .

I’d say it would take at least 40 hrs to carve that baby

40 hours or so just to carve it? wow,also it would take a while to find and prep the wood.
@joe,$3000 Canadian money is not far off from the US$,something like $2700 USD or about, but I’m not sure if that statue is worth that much.
