    Must have been an interesting glue up.
    How long did roughing cut take?
    You did a great job on the Irish homestead wood ones!
    Is it harder or easier to carve the 3' one?
    Great work Brian!!

    Scott the roughout was around 3 hours with a 7/16 endmill I cleaned that up a bit with a 1/4 ballnose about another 45 min. the model I have has very little detail its good for proportions and each one I carve has its own look.

    At least this fir is not all fuzzy like the last.

    As for easy or more difficult each size has advantages larger is easy to get into tight spots, smaller does not need as much attention to detail.

    Todays progress still needs refining I have found doing other work and coming back later helps to find a lot of the work that needs to be done.

    It is hard to know when you are finished.

    I'm Impressed Brian!!
    I think it's like a painting;
    "It's NEVER finished....it just stops in an interesting place."
    I know my cousin who's a painter, keeps his work in the studio doing the final "touch up" over and over, until his significant other grabs it and says;
    "It's DONE Wade! SIGN it!!"
    Beautiful Brian!
    Hope you sign it where nobody can find it for 100 years, and then have to look you up
