    I have 8 acres and wanted to clear a new driveway. I had a tall "stump" I wanted to do something with. I am very pleased with this as my first carving. It is right at the entrance to my house.

    I made some mistakes but I am learning by doing!

    Nice.

    On your base make sure to angle your cuts so the water quickly drains away on all sides to last longer.

    LOL. I'm about to cut it down unless someone with the same last name ends up buying the house! We decided to move to a bigger house with more acerage. I'm hoping/hinting that I NEED a bigger barn. She has agreed as long as she can get her suv into the garage. I think I can make that happen if I get a 40 x 60 barn!
