‘Tis the season for pumpkins and pine trees

Every year from mid-September through mid-December, Mark carved oodles of pumpkins and pine trees. They are made from poplar and cedar wood and left in their natural state.

The natural pumpkins are $35, the torched pumpkins are $40 and the pine trees are $45. View the gallery page.

Mark carved  about two dozen pumpkins in various shapes and sizes. They were rustic in style and burnt with a torch to give it the dark accents and shading. They look great...
