Unusual carving. Nice! That's an interesting shade of red. It has a shineyness to it.

Steve, I have power carved probably around 300 cypress knees with power over the years. It is the only way to go in my opinion. It is easier and much much faster. If you want to see more go to my website listed below and look at the holiday section. For more info email me and I will send you my tutorial on carving a cypress knee with power.
