Totem Pole

End Oct. 2009

Time to Carve: 1.5 hours
Finishing: 2 hours

I was using a large dowel for something else and had some left over. What can I do with this ... Totem Pole! Carving the basic shape of the heads didn't take much time but cutting the mouths now that is another story. If you compare mine to the pattern you will notice that the second from the top looks a little different. That is because I made a mistake and decided to keep it. It is painted as close as I could to the original directions and a couple of coats of poly finish it off. All and all it looks pretty good.
