Thanks! I bought a bag of craft driftwood at Hobby Lobby, cut them to length and look like a logger cut them. A coat of gray paint, dry brush brown and ultra dry brush black. Came out just like I wanted.....sometimes you luck out.
THANKS ALL!!!! On a side note I sent the photos and box art to R2/AMT just to show. They sent back a note that John Bogosain LOVED it! He is the designer on many of the AMT showrods!! I was thrilled they shared them with him!
