    Good looking logs, Harold. How long did it take to make one?

      It doesn't take long if they are done as batches. The most time consuming part is adding the branches. In future batches I will add more branches. All those in the last picture were probably done in a half hour including figuring out how to do it, drying time and photographing the process. I probably could do at least twice as many in less time without the distractions of developing the process and photographing

          That is a 3/8 dowel. That is why the first picture in the article has some fingers.

                Again, that's a great tutorial Harold. Thank you for sharing your ideas.

                The bark on your logs looks quite realistic, something which is usually difficult to achieve unless you spend a lot of time. Need to try it some day.

                  Harold,

                  Thankyou for sharing that technique. Adding tree bark is something I have wanted to learn for both logs as well as layout trees. You have made it very simple.

                  Regards,

                  Trent

                      Mike Siggins used my method to make some logs and was kind enough to take a picture of them
