We were at the State Fair watching the men carve tree trunks with chain saws. It was amazing the things they made.
Mike, a Pioneer seed corn salesman, casually turned to Ken and said, “I wish I could get one of those ears of corn.” Mike’s birthday was a few months away and Ken tucked that wish back in his memory.
When he got home, he did this…
Time line to make corn …
- 1 day cut & clean up tree
- 10 hours to Carve out
- 4 hours to Sand
- 3 weeks to Dry wood
- 4 hours to Paint
If you have a piece of dry wood, you could finish one of these before Christmas! Who knows, you may have a hidden talent. You never know until you try.
Ken was also featured in an earlier post, “My Frugal Friends Go Shrimping.”
