Everyone knows the saying “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. (The things we already have are more valuable than the things we only hope to get.)
When i was a teenager my Father, Brother, and a family friend entered a snow carving competition. My father designed this model and we carved it from snow. This ultimately led to my Fathers chainsaw carving career – Mike Bihlmaier 7-Sons.com, , i believe we won Peoples Choice. This has always been one of my favorite pieces! Now i can share it! This model was designed with the help from a 3D scanner, scanning my hand with an Xbox Kinect I picked up from a retail shop, the software i used was Reconstructme. Used blender to rig the model to the current shape. Everything else was from scratch.
