Yer right Ben, I will ALWAYS be a beginner compared to you

Hello everyone, time for a little update on what I am thinking will be
some sort of Maori warrior. Or maybe he'll be an Indian chief, I just
gotta keep chizzlin' till I find out. A few progress shots for the
past week...






He sorta reminds me of Larry King, what do you think?

Ahoy Conga! This fellow looks a lot like a pic I leaked to Benno a little while ago. Too bad Benno is cheating on me again.... This bloke is/was to be my next BIG project. Oh well, better that you took a poke at him first so I can see where all the perile is. Love him. Love the "action." You rawk dude.

Thanks GMan, nice to see that you are not out hunting pigs or crocs.
The Benz is cool, he didn't slip me some GMan inspiration photos. I
doubt we have the same source...mine is based on something that I found
once online and printed...and cannot find again to save my life. And also
the "thinker" png carving that is...I think...at Stanford. Doesn't matter...
you would do a better job on it anyway

A beginner who grow up! for sure!
Amazing work work on this guy conga! perfect chiseling, proportion and especially expression...
Your style of sculpture is frequently an expression of calm and wisdom that we see not often here.

Thanks for visiting Ben and Surfin'....always appreciate the kind nudges!
And Jerome...thanks for noticing the "calm and wisdom" in my stuff. I
really shoot for more of a "protective" feel in my carvings...like ancient
spirits keeping watch over us....and keeping the evil spirits at bay

Hey Conga - great new stuff from you. Glad the weather is permitting you to get some work done. So you like the arbortech chisel huh? I looked at that recently. I'm trying to find one that will really take a lot of abuse. It looks like this one is tougher than the wecheer and foredoms.

Conga, with that stance he HAS to be a Maori warrior! Great piece, and I can't wait for the finished results.

Hey, nice to hear from everyone!
Freddie Balls, no way he's gonna be done by Thanksgiving, I've actually learned to
take my time and relax. Seems I used to want to race through the whole process,
now I just let it happen. Heck, I hope I'm done by Christmas

Big T...really enjoying the nice weather up here. It won't be too long and I'll have
to really bundle up to work outside. Thanks for your comments. I really love the
arbortech power chisel. Seems really durable but I have also been really careful not
to burn it out. I use lots of cam oil to keep things cool and only push it for about
15 minutes at a time.

And Mango, definitely turning into a Maori. Just have to determine what type of
weapon he will be brandishing. I have a couple of small polynesian clubs that
might work...or else I will have to create a suitable whacking device.

Keep up the great work guys.
