A Sunny Day at the Bark Cottage
A beautiful day today in Kingston and Rosie and I spent a couple of hours enjoying the backyard…carving, weeding, barking at squirrels, etc. Here’s a couple of pictures from our afternoon.
I’ve hollowed out the back of the carving with the Foredom tool so that I could open up the window panes. I used the same process as the last time…drilled out the window pane with a small bit, hollowed out the back until I was able to see the drilled holes and then used knives and chisels to clean up the square panes. I’ve also used a small gouge to create the look of bark on the tree and have added some blocks, boulders and a tunnel entrance to the bottom of the carving.
A bit more work on the base and then adding the rope and pulleys for the freight elevator and we’ll be ready for a finish to be applied.
