I started this bust carving six weeks ago. He is carved from a block of butternut measuring 3 1/2" x 4"and 7" long. I finished him by applying a coat of polyurethane, wiping off the excess with paper towels.

I purchased a box of cottonwood bark from a supplier in Montana. Smaller than what I had been getting from Arizona, but that supply dried up. Here is the first piece. He measure 12" in length, 3" wide and over 2" thick. Finished with lacquer.
