    My something ?

    We have another challenge going on over at WTU. This time it's to made something you have never done before. Well i all ways wanted to made a tree, so this is my meager attempt. Made from maple and about 7 tall and 6 wide at the tallest and widest. Really wanted to carve a hawk to sit on top, but can't get one to look right being as small as it would need to be. Lots of mishaps and tons of things i would do different if i ever try this again. Click image for larger version.

    I'll tell you what. You might call this a meager attempt if you want to. I think it is quite good. Certainly 100 times better than what my big stiff hands could do. Looks like a nice place to stash some M&M's, too! Great job to me!

    Dave thanks. You must be related to Jim Burr. He loves his M&M's also. LOL

    There might be some kind of distant thing going there. Never know. M&M's are stalwart Americanism at it's finest!!!

    I think that is a beautiful piece and I agree it could only be enhanced by the presents of M&M's.
    You sir are an artist.

    Pretty dang good for an ol' nailbender from Tennessee! Beautiful piece, Steve. Your carving keeps getting better and better, and your turning has always been top-notch.
