  • Can\\\'t whittle all the time.......

    During our travels this summer I saw several examples of this type of lawn art/garbage container over in Newfoundland and thought I\\\'d try my hand at making one for myself. It takes longer than you would think to prep and paint the barrel so I guess it\\\'s much the same as carving..............about .50 cents an hour when all is said and done...

    I know what your mean. After I made the Quilted Northern Mr Froggy toilet paper roll holder, I got request from my grandson and son-in-law for holders. Grandson wants a Peterbilt Cabover and the son-law-wants deer antler. neither have much carving, just some serious layout, cutting, glueing and painting. Got to make my self be patient and take my time. Would much rather have a knife in my hand, Oh well Keeps the old head at work (overtime). . .JoeB

        Really nice painting on the barrel. That would hold a lot of wood chips though.

                No special paint; I just used some cheap metal/rust paint that I had left over from when I was repairing lawnmowers. I picked it up at the local hardware store.
