swimming dolphin – made from apple wood with a teak oil finish.

made in 2 pieces.. Base and dolphin separate. Tried to make it look like the dolphin is floating above the waves..

i guess my apple wood is finally drying out. first pieces I did not struggle with cracks and splits from the wood drying out . Coming up to the 1 year mark from when I cut the wood from the first tree. I have another tree to take down.. Wish it wasn’t single digits every time i had time to go out this winter so i can finish cutting it down. But I thought I read that it’s good to cut down in the spring when the leaves are coming out. The new leaves help suck the moisture out of the tree. Any thoughts on that ?

Wonderful dolphin carving, the wood has pretty grains and a great finish.

Have your say...
