I'm working on a carved bird house for a contest that ends this month. I wasn't sure if I wanted to enter or what my design would be until I finally come up with something on July 4th. So now the pressure is on to get it completed like I want and to get it entered. I wanted to use a simple design and simple materials, in keeping with a traditional birdhouse. But I wanted to use carving to elevate it from something humble, to something more artistic. So I used some pine left over from some drawers I built for a dresser and started doing some simple relief patterns on it. This is where I am so far. Thanks for looking.
