Here are a few I have been working on this week. The first is swamp cedar,second is crab apple and the third is Italian olive sent to me by Ifix. All only have many coats of wax as finish, and likely will get a few more! I almost love polishing them more than shooting.....Mind I said ALMOST. :thumbsup:

Thank you ALL. Yah the cedar is sweet, The pix don't really do justice,the colour and shape are near perfect. I am glad I don't have to choose just one. The crab and olive have thier points also!

I missed these -- great stuff, Trobbie. I have no qualms at all about picking my favorite from those, which are all nice. It is the one on the right in pictures 1, 2, and 4.

Thanks DH it is a sweet shooter. I cut it off a live tree in the swamp at the edge of town. It was quite an adventure getting it , but so worth while. :D
