Had some leftover spalted birch wood. Enough to make into three mushrooms. The stems are birch and the base is boycott.
Finish is several coats of a mixture of shellac and methyl alcohol. This liquid finish penetrates the wood grain quickly and dries rapidly allowing for a quick finish.

Not quite a boot Roman but as a boy we’d kick the mushrooms in the bush as we went, so they count.
The shaping is nice finished sir.

That’s awesome! Did you hand carve them? Or, how?
