Going whole hog in the log

The bulk of our day was spent inside a hollow log. First we applied a quick scratch coat of fiberglass reinforced concrete and then we went back and applied a second heavier coat. The afternoon was spent sculpting in the woodgrained texture to make it look like a real log. There's a whole bunch of board feet in this massive timber! Six of us were working inside the timber for much of the day, When I took this shot we were down to four inside.

Tomorrow the outside of the log gets it's skin, making the log look a whole lot more massive in the process. Stay tuned...
