    Default Chainsaw carved gnome tree and houses

    This is not a carvewright project so if the moderators want to delete it.
    Took me several weekends to carve the tree and make the 3 houses. I won't bother you all with the many process photos, here are some of it finished, day and night photos.

    The left house is made from cedar boards, the center one I carved from a 20" diameter log section of pine, the right one I turned in the lathe to try to look like an acorn, it's cotton wood and pine.

    5 solar panels to run 2 lights each in the houses and 2 copper string lights for the steps.

    I don't really believe in gnomes, I mean really a bunch of old guys with beards and funny hats

    Super cool project. Wish I was that good with a chain saw. I can barely saw wood with mine.

    Thanks for sharing.
