The recent carve turned out great! The paint does add to it without being too much. This spring has been a wild ride, but it looks like summer is starting to take hold.

A big log carving is next???

Conga, The amount of paint really enhances the piece, you used just enough and let the carve show off all your fine work, really amazing!

Thank you for the nice comments on the yard


Amy

Better catch up on a couple of things around here.
Johnny...I've been keeping my eye on a big chunk of basswood, waiting for
it to speak to me. So far I can't hear anything, a minor case of carvers block.
I'll get over it.
Ben...no snow in the forecast till August but keep that extra bedroom reserved
for me, just in case
Queen Amy...many thanks again.
Marcus...thanks for visiting my little spot over here and for your endorsement
of my latest effort. It means a lot to catch your attention.

Well, what a state that I live in! In Wisconsin it's either "frost on the
pumpkin" or "Snowy Moai."

Snowy Moai, oooh baby, we gotta go now!



Oh Man! Hat's off to ya for carving in this weather! Yuk, is all I can say.

Ahhhh, Springtime in Wisconsin Surfintiki, no more snow, so you can leave
your hat on
Any respectable property owner would have spent all day cleaning up
the yard, but I spent the day messing mine up.

This is going to be another PNG influenced fella, I guess that's
what I do. But I also have a couple of other things started...

And then we have a big 9 foot chunk of basswood in the garage, I think
spring is gonna be fun.

I'm glad spring it's showing up at last, it's true the last tiki has a nice spring smile on his face, now TC may go back to have a lot of action!

I wanted to ask you, if you don't mind, how do you keep the logs, so they won't rot with the snow and all. do you debark them and seal the cuts and have to wait a lot to use them? or you work on them and wait to do the final details when they are more dry? or it depends on the kind of wood? I'm asking because here autumn it's coming and it's very very damp, but i thought if you can save the logs with snow and all maybe i can too, benzart told me to just use them green (it's ficus) but I can't use the 5 of them right now, so... just wondering

Thanks Laojia, Seeks and Clarita. Yea, sure is nice to get outside and carve in
nice weather. For the last several months its been indoor carving and then outside
in the cold for sanding and finishing up.

Clarita, I really don't do anything special with my logs other than keeping them in
my garage until I use them. I generally buy 4-6 basswood logs and toss them in my
garage until it's their turn for chizzlin'. Some I get split into half logs and
others are full round. The last few carvings are from pieces that were cut last
summer. I usually like to carve right after they are cut, still a little wet inside,
it's just like carving butter.

Most of my carvings are sorta moody, but I like the fact that my latest feller is
happy. He's gonna get a lot happier too!

Gman, I'm glad you finally noticed the shooz, they were included in the shot for
your benefit. They are my painting/staining/carving/lawn mowing/lounging shoes
that my wife has tossed in the dumpster TWICE. They are really comfy and they
don't reek too bad unless you are close I have been piddling a little bit on
a few projects but progress is slow. Pics soon.

Sorry for the late response Surfintiki. I get a lot of my wood from these
guys.
http://www.logandveneer.com
They hold a huge "Forestry Field Day" every september, which is a big deal
up here in the northwoods (largely due to the free lumberjack breakfast that
they serve...people ARE cheap you know). I have done on-site carving there
the past few years, lotsa fun. I also have several customers (I sell cars/trucks)
who provide chunks of wood for free.
Stay tuned...pics this weekend.
