200+ year old American Chestnut Woodcarvings

A couple of recently finished smaller (not easier) projects using salvaged American Chestnut (virtually extinct) I had been collecting for some time. The reclaimed lumber came from foundation beams that once supported old Colonial homes in the local area where I reside. I turned the square beams (about 8"x 8") into "natural tree nest cavities" sections showing a "natural scene", a segment of a whole impossible to represent faithfully. Each one contains a nest cavity resembling one that may be found in nature, with real nest material and wooden eggs.
These are slightly different than one I made 10 years ago.

Took a break from woodcarving birds to work on a couple of projects to "re-purpose" a few pieces of old furniture I had just occupying space, some in parts or missing components. The pic is from a bench made from two such items matched by wood type, Oak.  It is a 48" long and 60" tall, 18" seat width.  Already it's got a place in our dining room :)
