I found this in a piece of pine the other day. The nice thing about pine, when cut thin, the knots are somewhat see through. I just got a new camera, and I am still learning how to use it.
First pic is natural light on my back door. Pic # 2 is with flash.
The grand children love it.

Finished with linseed oil.

Enjoy.

That’s cool and a search on GOOGLE revealed this is a Wood Owl native to Houston Texas . LOL
The camera does some amazing results with different settings .

That would make a cool night light cover.

Love owls, love your versions and the work you did to make them.

Very cool. I will be searching for a big round knot to make my own owl in the future.
