Introduction

 

“The Backyard Sculpture is something I started several years ago when I was just looking for something to carve. I was out walking along the bay looking for inspiration and wood when I came across a wet cedar log approximately 8 inches in diameter floating in the small hamlet of Meaford, Ontario, Canada along the shore of Georgian Bay. I looked at the log just floating there knocking up against the rocky shoreline, when it came to me that I can carve that log with a mul-titude of designs and patterns, plus add on bird houses, signs, and just about anything. And if I use cedar, the wood will have a tendency not to rot when placed in the ground so it’s sustainable for many years outside. All I would have to do is paint it from time to time to add colour or I could just let it go gray. However, most of the logs along the shoreline are saturated with water and will most likely crack when dried out. So I went on a quest to find my project wood, with the requirements that it must be dry, inexpensive, “easy to acquire and should be a diameter of no less than 6-8 inches. And within a day I found it in the local lumber yard, Cedar post that are 8 ft in length with an average diameter of 6 to 11 inches and extremely inexpensive. Plus the lumberyard had thousands available, and that’s how I started making the Backyard Sculpture.
