Heres a simple ladybug for a childs play area, carved from cedar.

And some memorial posts for a green burial ground, fancy tree stakes.
I have carved 9 since christmas, its good to use m'chisels now and again to finish off.

The first post is a piece of sand blasted acacia, theres a small owl and a mouse on the front and a combination of chisel and wood burning iron.

I started of with chainsaw and finished the detailing with chisels.

I always like seeing what you're up to Dick.
I've just recently learned about green burial grounds. How appropriate to have woodcarvings as memorials there.
Thanks for showing us your pics.
