Pine Cone Newel Post

My advice to all woodcarvers, don't carve southern yellow heart pine. It's hard, and doesn't hold detail!

 

This newel post was commissioned to have a pine cone carving done on top. I used basic carving tools along with appropriate power tools on this and the tedious nature of this kind of carving really made itself apparent after a week or so. I'm quite glad to have it done.
