Carving in January.. and it’s not ice!

It’s January and it’s plus 8 Celsius! Took out a chunk of white ash that fell to the evil EAB and did my first carving of 2018. Felt good giving my battery operated chainsaw a solid workout. I rediscovered my carving muscles. Ouch.😬

Snapping turtle @ Fairy Lake -step 1 to 3

This was a challenge for two reasons; 1/ the tree was three stumps that separated about 2 feet above the ground and 2/ I wanted a realistic sculpture of a snapping turtle that only a mother snapping turtle could love.😘:-)
