Douglas Fir is a horrible wood to carve.
It's rock hard and smells sour, but I'm making an exception for this model for the big sculpture.
This block is an old house corbel and wanted a life other than the fireplace or the dumpster.
It's been on a house for almost a hundred years and is rotten look in the upper right corner of the photo.
I'm leaving that as a visible part of its history.
