Another tree carving! YEAH! and Origami Rose

For the last couple of days I have been dragging two huge logs over to our house so I can have another large project to work on. I was able to grab two logs this time. Both oak! And spent the first couple of hours today trying to tip one up so I could work on it. It was a bit of a challenge, but i think the next one will be a little easier. I didn't get too far tonight, Basically I just chainsawed lightly on the bark and used my construction chisel to rough off the outer shell. It has been nice and warm here lately, so I'm hoping that the removal of the bark will aid in it drying a bit and getting lighter. (Did I mention it was HEAVY!) Once I get a little more off I'll be able to move it inside. Still have not decided what she is going to be. I have several ideas floating around in my brain. Oh, And I folded An origami Rose. the pattern being off of Robert Lang's version. I still need to work out a few bugs, but this one at least looks presentable.

I'll follow your carving as you work on it. This observing is a lot easier than doing. Might become a full time gauker in my dotage.
