Made a giant wolf delek for the local folk festival with a couple of mates. 3rd year we have made a burning wolf sculpture. 2 days for 3 people and a lot of slab wood and screws. Delek part of it was made i solidarity with local sci fi museum getting hammered by the planners (local story).

Anyways made a nice change 20190928_142528.thumb.jpeg.75607dc11ba268a5cd98cd092efddb86.jpeg20190928_144808.thumb.jpeg.d053c8904af8c62507925d7a5bce8929.jpeg20190928_191236.thumb.jpeg.932dd07ae4f251cb44598e40a58f49a3.jpeg20190928_192214.thumb.jpeg.19647c189417d56b113d2119a5af7097.jpeg

Nice Bob, looks like some superb firewood, not for the goblins I hope?

I put it further up the field in a hedgerow Mick, client is going to get it carved into some sort of bench.

I originally sold the wife on a reduction/thin leaving enough branches to look like a handsome yet sparse tree, fitting for the situation, revealing a view across the valley currently obscured.

On the day, the husband took me aside, " I want it all off."

Are you sure? We can do good things here. "No" was his reply, "all off.

 Climber starts his saw "last chance" I shouted to the client who just waved from the seat of his JD1026 tractor and mowed on past.

Ah well I sighed and signaled the climber to begin.

Bet his wife burst into tears when she returned from petanque...
