    Got a pretty good start on this guy yesterday. Just your standard stump eagle pose, but I tried to add a little more life into him by changing a few features. I'll try to finish this one up as soon as it stops raining and I figure out what I wanna do with the base. Also set some time aside to haul some big poplar logs from my neighbor that I've been using for those fat bear heads. He was just gonna burn this stuff to get rid of it, so when he said I could take it all to save him some work, I couldn't get it out of there fast enough,lol

    Ya gotta start somewhere,lol
    My first carving was a real simple face in a log just like those.
    I never really thought it would escalate to anything more than that, but here I am closing in on a year with this stuff and dreaming of new ideas I'd like to try one day!

    Finally decided on what I wanted to do with the base, but the rain put a damper on my work day.
    Should be able to button this one up next time we get some sun shine!
    I'm not real good at carving skulls right now, but as long as I keep trying I'm bound to get better eventually,lol
    I think he'll look a little better after I burn it.

    Just need to pick up some varnish tomorrow, but for the most part, this one is done.
