I spent a little time in the shop today, even though it is the weekend. My goal today was to carve the woodgrain into the edges of Dayna's sign and get it permanently mounted into place. The tree has been a joint effort with Jeff doing much of the shaping of the tree under my watchful art direction. Jeff has a great eye and he's been itching to try the welding for some time. We allowed a generous timeline for the project in order to really have time to put our heart into it. This makes it a great project for him to learn this aspect of our craft. The whole crew is anxious to do the sculpting and painting which will begin when the armature is complete. The tree has a great feel already. I hope to add some branch structure tomorrow.
