our owl


when I was 14 living at home with my parents we had an old apple tree that my dad was cutting down as it had gotten rotten...anyway in the middle of cutting it down my dad started to carve an owl out of the shapes that he saw from the knots in the wood - i found these old photos (not the best ones) but you can kind of see the owl in the background, we kept it for about 6 months before my dad chopped the whole thing down...
