This is another "Ent Ring" made from the bottle-brush burl I got out of Jill's tree. Any finish one these really pulls the reds and browns right up to the surface. Sadly can't do more pictures as one picture couldn't possibly display all that's going on with this ring. I finished this with CA and used CA to stabilize the ring.
Ring I carved out of a bottlebrush burl ball I got out of a tree in front of Julia's mom's house. This is for Frank over at http://damcaster.com as a Mirkwood Elf ring. Had to update this as Frank rightly pointed out Treebeard!!!! absolutely this looks like an Ent. I have made a few more of these "Ent Rings" and will post them later.
Not done with this project yet but figured I would post at least one pic of it. This is a cane I am working on from a piece of wood my uncle found on his property. It has 4 "heads" which I carved a Viking style dragon on each of and then carved a Celtic knot down the spine of the cane. I have finished this further so all the markings for the outline I are gone now (all the green). I will post more pictures when this is finished. Sadly only one picture per post on Pinterest
