Check out this carving by Marc Barger. This is amazing. Some people are so talented.
That would make a sweet lamp.:rockon:
Man is that awesome, the attention to detail is great. Does anyone know how long it took him. I guess some people just have skills!:rockon:
I read that it took him a year to complete.
Dang thats cool, what did it score? lol

Thanks! Antlers are carved. The whole purpose of this piece, other than trying to make one look as real as possible and have a good time creating it, was for it to represent what a new World's Record Whitetail would/could look like. Pretty much destroys that record...if it were real.
The whole piece is made up of 36 pieces (antlers, body, ears, tree, roots on the base) all glued and screwed and doweled together. Of course no joints or attachments are visible and some took some time to get them that way. There's actually a glue joint that runs right down the middle of the deer's body right across his face in fact. Reason for that is you can't buy wood thick enough for a piece such as this so gluing it together is a must.
Here's a pic of the base. "'Roots' are 2 pieces of 3/4" birch ply glued together for strength then shaped. Then screwed, doweled and epoxied to the tree (which is also carved). In fact everything is 'made' on the piece. Leaves and grass are made from brown paper grocery sacks. Dirt is hydraulic cement and crushed kitty litter (had to keep my cat away from it! HA!). Deer is removeable from the tree for transporting.
And here's a pic of when I just started. This is for the body. If I only knew how many hours lay ahead of me at that time!!
Awesome, I love to see people with their imagination and hands at work.
