Default Looking for food in this economy

I thought you might like my most recent carving. This particular tree turned out to have several rotten spots so it make making the carving very difficult.

Hope you like it.

Greg

Hi Greg,
Another terrific carving! What did you use for the color on the bee hive? I like the contrast really well, and it just works.

Thanks Merle and Christina

The bee hive is natural cypress wood.... The carving is not varnished yet. I am planning on using Cabots Spar Varnish Satin. I am sure the hive will change colors once I put the finish on it.

Greg

Hi Greg,
Another nice one. I don't envy you carving that one so close to the ground, but it turned out great.
I can't wait to get back up north for some good old Canadian hardwood to carve, I am getting tired of all this cypress and yellow pine down here in Florida.
Thanks for posting,

Bob

Nice work Greg! I'll bet you've got a sore back after that one!

Thanks for the good comments.
