Bob Cat Mount
« on: January 09, 2014, 12:03:37 PM »
This is a piece of Juniper from Chama. It has been high pressure washed of bark. I didnt cut it or wash it. All I did was sand the ends of the limbs and put a coat of sanding sealer and a coat of poly on it. It will have a Bob Cat mounted laying on the middle part. It belongs to a friend. bg

Bill - Did you get this piece in Chama, New Mexico?  Some years ago I spent two months in northern New Mexico, and remember Chama as a beautiful place, justifying New Mexico's reputation as "The Land of Enchantment."

I got the picture now! I could not figure out how you could get a Bobcat loader on that limb! Then I remembered that there are other kinds besides machinery. A really distinctive mount for sure. We will need pictures of that.   Andy
