Gnarly tree

It was finally my turn to apply the fiberglass-reinforced-concrete and do some carving. I've had my eye on the Wilderness Trail tree since I welded it up last week. I knew exactly how I wanted to handle the gnarly tree. TJ mixed up some fine batches of concrete mud and in a couple of hours it was coated out and two hours after that it was ready to carve. TJ gave me a hand with the rocks at the bottom. He and Hailey also carved the last of the wheels as I worked on the tree.

My favorite part was the large broken branch about half way up.

One more piece is ready for the paint shop. Stay tuned for color...
