I think the Silver Birch is my favourite tree. This piece was given to me by Bill, my wood carving instructor, to practice on. I didn't get much accomplished while we were sitting and chatting last week, but I got inspired today and managed to complete the wood-sprite figure emerging from the small slice of Birch. The piece is small,15 cm (length) x 5 cm (diameter), and stained with a clear pine and a coat of Shellac. Check availability at my Etsy store .
