Default A tree out of a tree!

Hi All, Just started on this commission , will be a day & a half job, short one! It is a commission for a tree service company that wants a display unit for taking to all the shows they do for advertizing & will have a flat shelf cut into the top just below the crown of the tree for a wde screen TV which will run a loop of pics from a DVD player of their different services available. It is 5' tall by about 3 1/2' wide & a half log!

Hi All, Thanks Al & yes "Treecycling" is what ya call it buddy! Bill, I still got some of it but many have passed by my saw in the last year & it gets harder to keep track as time passes! The biggest i have is the MS660 Magnum but would like to either get an MS880 or a 3120 Husky also! Grrrrrrrr! Dick, yes this is what it will be for at the shows & all will see my logo also! Here are a few from today but didn't have too much time to carve, busy busy!

Very nice job Robbin. But you should keep the piece for your self to show all the possibilities that could be carved out of a tree. Follow me here from the first pic in your last post starting from the house side of the photo you have : the easter bunny hiding followed by a teady bear, then a hunch back that blends into a human face and finally on the end of the other side of the leaves there is either a cross dog or an angry sheep. Did you intend this or am I just in desperate need of sleep? it looks freakin cool to me lol

Hi Robin, Hmmmm, not sure but maybe my subconscience? I will have to go out & look at this now with a different eye I guess. I was just carving a tree as far as I knew, maybe tired, maybe who knows?
Thanks, Robbin

lol sorry, Hazards of the trade I guess. We are who we are because our minds see beyond what is just infront of us. I didn't mean to get others fixed on what they may see. The piece just drew me in
