    Man that's a big piece of wood. I was offered a couple about that size once, just as big, not as tall, I just laughed. Love to see it when it's done.

    People who can look at that gaint chunk of wood like that, see the bird and fish inside, and then carve away all the "extra" so that even I can see it - are just amazing! What a gift.

    I was told that oak does not carve well with a chainsaw. It almost looks like pine.
