  • Build it and they will come

    Rather large 100k pic. I got in email this morning


    This is the actual turnoff from Banff to the # 1 highway to Calgary.

    Great picture isn't it? They had to build the animals (especially the elk) their own crossing because that was where the natural crossing was and after the highway was built there were far too many accidents. I understand it didn 't take the animals long to learn that this was their "road .

    That's very cool. Is that new? I lived under a bridge in Banff for a few weeks years ago and don't recall seeing anything like that.

      That is a great pic, Carl. I've driven over that piece of road but unforunately it was "elkless" at the time.

      We did see a lot of them in Jasper though - woke up one morning to find a herd of about 16 of them all round the cabins in the campsite we were staying at. They're very impressive animals .. and that is a beautiful part of Canada - away from the concrete overpasses of course ..lol

                Well some parts at least, Marsha - not so sure about the concrete jungle round Toronto .. or some parts of Nova Scotia for that matter

                      I don't know about the roses but they do make good swizzel stick toppers for a cocktail. In Alaska they make all kinds of crazy stuff out of Moose Poo, there are ear rings, necklaces, Christmas Ornaments...etc.

                        i agree with Carl - I think most animal poo - well rotted, as with horse manure - is probably good.

                        Toronto zoo sell "Zoo Poo" Kind of gives a whole new meaning to "Where there's muck there's brass"...

                          Neat picture.

                            I would think with the new passport laws that shouldn't be a problem. Specially since they travel by air.

                              They tend not to land at airports though, Carl ..

                              I just had this wonderful mental image of the USAF patrolling the border checking for incoming Canada Geese .. ROTFL

                                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                                I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                                Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                                Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

                                I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
