Carving stumps, sticks and logs with just about any tool that gets in my way.

New cottonwood bark carvings.
I've made a few more pieces from cottonwood bark. This first one is the second eagle from what started out to be a Native American face. That piece broke in half so I used the smaller pieces for eagle heads.
When one carved predators, shouldn't the also carve prey? The hare is a common figure in European woodcarving and is often presented as a stylized figure. Another coat of varnish and this hare will shine as nicely as the eagle above...
While not yet completed, I have begun carving a tortoise to complement the hare :)
