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 :)
Each are for sale.

There's a certain amount of stress involved with carving such an unusual creature. Each time I counted the legs, I wondered if I had lost track or counted one twice. No one wants a septopus!

|Chainsaw Carved Gnome|
I often drive around with carvings in the back of my truck and am given a thumbs-up by other drivers and their passengers. However, when I took Rudy for a ride there were no thumbs-up. Just lots of smiles and giggles :-)
Rudy is for sale in Kennewick and can be yours for $100.

|Rustic, Cottonwood Bench|
The log rounds for these benches run from 26" - 32" in diameter and the seat slabs are 20" wide x 70" long x 2.5 " thick. VERY HEAVY STUFF. Kerf pockets for the slabs are cut in 6" deep to allow for pinning into place.
All surfaces have been rough sanded and treated with boiled linseed oil. Benches are priced at $400 as they are or $500 if a marine spar varnish finish is preferred.
