Totem Pole The following series of pictures are of an on-going project. It is my version of a totem pole using alot of the creatures surrounding the small town of Bowers Beach. The red oak beam came from an old barn in Avondale, PA and was hand carried home by my son and I. Not sure when it will be completed or where it will live but it is a fun project. No electric/rotary tools were harmed in the carving of this project.
