You're coming right along, what kind of stump are you working with?

We carved an eagle out of large oak stump a few yrs back, turned our pretty fair if I do say so myself. I'll see if I've still got the pics on the hard drive and post one up.

Nice work! And here's a suggestion: I always use a Dremel Tool for the detail work in my own totem poles....:)

Once I've got broad strokes roughed out, ya know, with my 18" Stihl, I get an extension cord, the Dremel, and a #2 burr attachment. I've been known to spend days on just an eyebrow or a feather.
