Life Size Cougar Stump Carving

A customer in Houston, Texas reached out to me about creating a life-size cougar using a stump in his front yard. We settled on a design of the cougar descending down some rocks, as it is the mascot for the University of Houston. We also included the U of H logo on the base.

I traveled to Houston, set up my scaffolding, and got to work!

Stained and finished! Below is a time lapse video of my carving process.
