Here is a couple of scetches that I drew up to carve on my posts, I think I like the one on the left the best. What do you think? The posts will be 5×5's and the carvings will be 4 inches wide by 32 inches long. I am going to carve only two sides of each post. The posts are pine but I am thinking about carving the designs in cherry and on-laying them on the posts.
