This is a little animation from a series of log chairs that I carved for a local restaurant. This is number 1 of 4 and carved from a fresh cut Tulip Poplar log. The animation goes a little fast but the time lapse on my video camera turned off for some reason and by the time I noticed, it was almost too late. I worked on this face for about 4 days. I coated the carving every day before stopping with anchor seal to keep the face from cracking. I did the carving in the middle of winter next to a wood stove and had no cracks when finished. Unfortunately I did not video tape the other 3 faces. Enjoy.
