Montana Toppers

I carved these two pieces sitting at the picnic table in the Gallatin National Forest.

They are out of lodge pole pine. First time I have used LPP, it is similar to the eastern white pine we have in Indiana though it seems to carve a bit "cleaner".

The bear is small enough to be used as a walking stick topper. The wood spirit is probably a bit too large to top a staff, it may make a decent table top piece. Both pieces need to be oiled or stained. At this point I am leaning toward linseed oil. Will post more pics as the pieces progress.
