It's part of a cherry tree - the top of the trunk where the branches start to fan out - that fell over in our neighbour's garden in Surrey.
I started carving it a couple of months before we moved to Cornwall in 2007 and didn't actually finish it until 2009, partly because it got put in store for a while and partly because it took forever, particularly getting it smooth.
| April 2007 - just getting started while still in Surrey|| 2009 - carving mostly done, the boring bit (smoothing) lies ahead. In Cornwall.|
I have other bits of the tree, some of which I've carved.
