Ah, yes. This carving was one I actually finished a year ago?! Wow.
I was careless and it got into the mouth of my dog before I took pictures. The thing was shredded beyond repair in seconds. Then, I made a second one from wood leftover from the first and I didn't like it. Tossed. Then I decided to have a go at it again, but this time I made two; one with paint and color, and another with wood burning and stain. So, now I've carved four variations of Rat's acorn. Phew.

He's not the one that shredded my carving.
