  • There was an old lady who lived in a shoe

    Phil is at it again, and here are some pictures hopefully in the correct order. 1st. He started by gluing 8 or 9 pieces of cottonwood bark together and roughing out this boot which is a bit over 13 inches long.. In the 2nd. pic. he has cut the boot in half from heel to toe to allow him to hollow it before gluing it all back together as in the 4th. pic. Number 5 shows the boot carved and partly assembled..Number 6 The boot is finished and given a coat of semi gloss clear..

        Hi Blinky, That's a Fantastic Carving. Tell Phil that he is good enough to join our Forum and he passed his test. Ha,Ha. Simply Amazing. Merle

              Not much more I can say that hasn't be said here. It is hard to believe that Phil is just starting, he has got a great sense of perspective and detail

                Thanks for posting John, Fantastic the way it came together, you would never know it had that many pieces. Phil did a great job.

                    Great use of the bark. The planning is also great, to say the carving was also great. Thanks for taking pictures along the way.

                      A great carving! I'm glad to see someone pushing the frontier of cottonwood bark carving by building up several pieces to create a carving,. It is great to see someone thinking outside the box and not just carving the existing single piece of bark. Phil may have created a new era of bark carving!
