The Carousel horse wood intarsia is 99.9% complete!! The pictures show it on an oak plywood. I was origionally going to cut an oval from this, and mount the horse on it. But I am thinking that it blends in too much. So I will be getting a piece of birch plywood - a lighter colored piece of wood.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong to get the photos on the wrong way - sorry about that!

I've got most of the horse cut out now. I've started some of the shaping and sanding. I need to get some darker wood to use for the hooves and saddle.

It's a sad day.....

Someone went out last night and cut the shoe treee down! I'm not sure why it was there, or what the significance was, but I always enjoyed driving by the tree just outside of St. Helen.

I would wonder who would throw their shoes up there, how it got started, and how did they get the shoes up so high?!

DH came home today and said he had been talking to a logger who's working in that area - the tree was there last night, but cut down this morning on his way into work.

I took these pictures about a year ago - I'm glad I did.
