This is the sign post I have carved out of an old piece of pitch pine
It is not the official entrance to my garden (which I hope will be more grand) but is intended to look as though it has been in place for a long time
The official entrance will be at the other end of the garden, and will constitute a large thatched archway with hardwood gates
The sign reads 'Mount Fuji' or 'Fujiyama' or 'Fujisan' as takes your fancy
I call my garden the Fujiyama Japanese Garden
You can find the link to the garden in another post to this forum
The carving was my first ever attempt with a new 'Dremel' which my wife bought me for Christmas. I found it to be quite easy to adapt to, so long as you take your time
Do you like it? Would you now be prepared to try this yourself? have I given you an idea?
Let me know what you think
Sam

Looks fantastic, Sam, thanks for sharing! However, given my poor craftsmanship, I'd be reluctant to try myself.

Wow!!! Sam, you are not going to believe this, I feel as if I already know you!! haha, I'm so sorry I missed your previous posts on the thread "Japanese garden find" I just went back over the thread and read them, and Yes I was snooping in your beautiful garden, hahaha, your title now "Whisky4 ect" set my mind into a whirl, especially because it was connected to a Japanese garden, hey I'm going to come to see your garden in the summer, (I'll wait for an invite of course first, lol because I'm very very shy ect:) It's a pleasure to meet you at last 🙂
