Lake, Benz, Seeks, always appreciate the comps, and the inspiration you
all send up to the northwoods.
Well, it's been a while, but I'm working on a couple of things.

Imagine a far off place, on a tall mountain peak, sorta like this




The "hut" is, of course, influenced by all of the whimsical cottage
"bark" carvings that we all see now and then, with a bit of an exotic
twist. The "figure in progress" is inspired by my nightmares.
The hut is gonna take a while cuz I wanna cram as many tikis into it as
possible. This weekend I hope to get outdoors, fire up some power
tools and get the crouching fella ready for detail work.

Thanks for stopping in....a lotta nice work being shown right now...
by you guys and gals.

Wow, thanks for the nice comments guys. This is what I need to keep pushing
ahead on these projects. I have a lot of nice touches in mind for the
"Hut".....perhaps some lighting....other thoughts are some bones/skulls in
the caves...figures outside the door....it's PLAYTIME in CONGALAND.
Thanks again.

Hello again, thanks everyone, going to have a lot of fun with the
hut.
Laojia...all of the carving on these pieces was done with what you
see here...my arbortech power chisel and numerous attachments...a hook
knife and a couple of small gouges

The arbortech chisel is wonderful. The chisel and attachments cost
around $320.
Once I have things pretty well roughed out I fire up the angle grinder
and do some preliminary sanding and shaping...like this

From this point, my tools will consist of sandpaper, hook knife and
small chisels for detail work.
