Making use of scrap wood: Mushrooms
A small quick freehand carving this time. It had quite a funny background as well since I didn't planned on making it. I was planning to make an Raven out of a piece of Ash, however I managed to totally ruin it with the first two cuts of the saw. After a moment of being shocked by the mistake I got a enraged at my own stupidity and threw the log into a pool.
Then I saw a pile of discarded logs that where the unusable leftovers of trees where the trunk divided into multiple thick branches. An idea popped into my head, they practically already have the shape of a double mushroom. So I made one in 2 hours to try it out:

Made out of Willow, underside burned for extra detail. I plan on making a lot of these out of those useless logs nobody wants. They are great as presents or make them for sale.
