Thanks guys!!
I was lucky to pull this one out of my hat :)
From the saturated punk wood carving detail well...to looking out back window to birds perching on the brush pile..and getting Twig idea :)
Yep Dan...in Summer when windows are open...we hear them all the time....but Seeing them is another thing altogether.
Pre-dawn watch for me always means checking out trees for "Bumps" to watch...and they always fly off before enough light for a good pic:(
Thanks again!
Now onto other projects:)

The twig was thinking about it Bill :)
So I let the cut base sit for a morning after I trimmed it in a pine rosin/oil/citrus thinner mix...and I think it soaked some up...then a surface coat with the excess.
The rest of the branch in the house the buds DID develop further for about a week:)
Thanks Bill:)

Nice grain in your firewood Scott. Aside from the CNC machine, that makes it a pretty cheap hobby!

Thanks guys! :)

Inexpensive, rarely boring, and sometimes serendipitous :)
I like the challenge of Attempting to incorporate the wood feature.
I'm easily bored...so perfect for me:)

More intriguing than this small trial version of Mom's Bigger one...not many surprises in this piece..just Time! :)
