About this creation

We were out in the forest, having completed a day of wood-chopping and eating a snack before heading home. Resting against a large stump, we never suspected danger until it was too late. A vast maw opened behind us; Jeremy tumbled in before he even knew what had happened. As his lifeblood ran between the teeth of Mother Nature, myself and Billy ran. We ran, and never returned. To this day, I've not cut down another tree.

Yep, I've built a man-eating tree stump that avenges itself upon lumberjacks. Just a quickie one day MOC to tide me over as I sort for the MocOlympics.



The front. I've acquired a few more foliage pieces since my last landscape.



I rather like this tree.



The man-eating tree stump. That's what happens when you pick on things bigger than yourself.



A stagnant, muddy pond. I like how the trans-black tiles work here, I've not seen them used like this before. (Though I'd be surprised if they haven't.)



Bird's eye view.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll see you again for the MocOlympics!

Quoting --R.K. Blast-- haha! Good stuff Luke! I do like your pond design, like you said, I haven't seen the Trans-Black tiles used for that before either so it might be a first! Also, where do you get those new colored leaves from that you've used near the bottom of the larger of the trees? --Blast--
Thanks, the Monster Fighters Werewolf set comes with five olive green leaves.

Quoting Mando Verd Though I appreciate the obvious skill, time and effort that went in to this build, I do not agree with the sentiment behind it. Living in the high northern part of the United States, a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from the Canadian border, we heat with wood. We purchase our permits from the forestry service and harvest our firewood legally. As stipulated by law we take only what has fallen naturally or is dead but still standing. What we cannot find our selves we purchase from locally based, law abiding lumberjacks. In so doing we actually improve the forest by removing the dead to make room for the root-system and general growth of the living. For the first year after we moved here we heated with the provided electric baseboard heaters and propane fireplace insert. When electric bills became too high we switched to a 'fuel effective' Monitor Heater. Number 4 stove oil turned out to be truck grade diesel. As fuel prices sky-rocketed that became impossible. So we changed to a pellet stove. The doubling of the price of pellets the next year put an end to that. The next year we went to a wood stove. Wood heating remains as the only affordable heating source here. To keep warm in the below zero weather winter brings, Lumberjacks are a necessity. And a legal one at that.
I had a hunch that someone would bring this up, thanks for being respectful about it. I realize how the MOC could be interpreted as anti-wood harvesting, however I am in no way against responsible exploitation. This MOC is only slightly satirical, with more emphasis on being so ridiculous it's funny than getting a message out. I meant no offence to lumberjacks, they were merely a convenient job to place in this situation.

Quoting E. B. Awesome! What would be awesome would be a full tree instead of a stump. Anyway, great work!
I completely agree, however my feeble brown collection would not be adequate for such a task, and I don't suspect that I'd have enough foliage either... Perhaps I'll re-build this a few years down the road.

A nice Really funny MOC, which has a funny point, and underlying Truths. The foliage is great, maybe add some to the stump, make it a tree, otherwise its a massive stump. BTW Great Title!

Quoting Tim C Funny stuff, Luke. I like the lumberjacks running away. You've captured that pure terror that only a man-eating tree stump could generate. The stump looks awesome, (I wondered immediately whether the tree's previous life was Charlie Brown's kite-eating tree). Your foliage worked well in this MOC. I was impressed by the muddy pond. I haven't seen that technique yet either and it works really well. I think the key to good building is if your viewer can tell what it is without the description, and the muddy pond has that stinky, slurpy look to it. Like if you step in it, your next act will be shoe-shopping;) Well done, Luke, and good luck in the MOCOlympics.
Thanks Tim, always great to hear from you. Who knows, maybe one of the lumberjacks is an older Charlie Brown who just can't catch a break?
