Blowtorching the Big Hawthorn

Just done a little more work on the hawthorn - burning the carved areas with a blowtorch. There was also an issue with my Labrador chewing the end off a small branch!

One of the uros (hollows) before burning

The surrounding areas were protected with a wet towel before burning
