Civil War LEMAX wood detail

I just started a new job that is a five day week. My old Friday off is gone and family "demands" now have to done on Saturday.  I am behind on weekly posts. Thank you all for the kind comments on the Napoleon III figures.

I picked up this second set of LEMAX Christmas figures to make them Union Army soldiers on a wood detail. The set included an out of scale ax. The problem is that the wood looks cut with a saw so I scratch built a two man saw. MARX playsets made a log on a saw horse so I painted one.
The base I made is too thick now that I see it enlarged and looks like a burger or cow flop. Maybe some dry grass will fix it.
