I carved this Whimsical house in a class at the Spokane Rendezvous. The house is cottonwood bark and is 7 inches tall and 2 inches thick. It is more brown then the picture shows. The corner piece under the tree broke off when carving, so I used Super glued it back on. I could have left it off, but I thought it added to the piece. It was left plain without boards or shingles and I like the grain showing through.
