Shingle Shed and Shifty Shack 09

Started carving the base for the Shingle Shed last night. 

The basic form was cut from a block of balsa foam using a back saw.  After I was satisfied with a drawing of the stone pattern, I proceeded to carve with a #16 blade.  If folks are interested, I will try to make a video showing how the balsa foam handles.  I love the way it carves--it really does "feel" like balsa without grain.

I left the tool marks, I think with some sanding, they will end up looking like part of the stone. . .  .

More sometime on the weekend.
