Plywood, Boards and Halloween Logs!

We have been hard at work in our garage. A friend is building a new house and gave us a ton of the leftover plywood and boards. My son got to have his pick - he was like a kid at Christmas! We needed a shelf in the garage, so a shelf is what he built: 

 Also, for a long time I have wanted to take a log, hollow it out, like a pumpkin, and carve things in it. I couldn't figure out how to do this until last night. After several fails and two broken drill bits, I finally did it! :) 

I made this one a little rustic tree. It was actually a lot harder than it looked. But, when I turned on the battery operated tealight, oooooh! it looked sooo pretty!

So, I am going to list this and work on some Halloween themed ones over the weekend.

If you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.

how did you hollow the log out?

That looks so cool! At first I was all, "How does it not catch on fire?" Then I read that you used a battery operated light. lol Makes more sense to me now! :-)

Love this with the little skellies! Hope you do more of this kind. I can see you creating a whole new line of logs!

I just really like working with wood made designed and am always looking for new techniques of doing it.I have obtained a lot of information from your web page.
