Hello everyone!
This little feller is finally off the bench.
Ben, I did something that you inspired.
I generally do not sand after staining, but I this case we have three coats of stain with
sanding in between. Seems to create a bit more depth in the finish, not sure if it shows
in the pictures.
And thank you Clarita, always appreciate you visits over here. I sorta got carried away with
the body, which is why it broke of course He appears to be more "tiki" than Nosferatu now!




He's about 18 inches tall...
Winter is just around the corner up here, the next project will be a BIG one that I can work
on for several months. Thanks for popping in.

Conga,,, Yes it Shows!! Those extra coats with sanding between make All the difference in the world.. Try one with 5 or 6 coats,, Sanded between of course, then you really see it instead of "Almost"
Excellent work on this guy, now Please, Show him to the Restroom!!!

I have to give this one three big grins. Overcoming the broken legs and the extra effort on the stain. . .A+

Repair job well done. Carving well done. Finish excellent! Btw, what grit did you sand with in between coats?

Hello carvers...thanks for the feedback...appreciate it.
Big T. I usually use 80 grit for the first go through because I carve pretty
rough until the detail stage. Then I bump up to 160...and I think I used the next
one...probably 240 for the final sandings. I use a lot of basswood which I think allows
me to get by using the more coarse paper. Is that how you spell course?

I know Ben's money is more tiki than this...but...just for fun...
making a carving of Petri the wonderdog for my daughter...

Petri is ambidexterous, can flop either ear.

Also just about to start a 20 inch marq out of cherry...gotta get back to work.

Two months since I posted anything? What's up with that?
Well, winter drags on, the Packers are in the super bowl, and I have a couple of things
on the bench...



The marq is made from Wisconsin cherry, nice grain, very hard wood.
The other one is a piece of basswood that I hope to make into a presentable mask,
right now I'm just carving without a plan, perhaps I will find a plan as I progress.

Glad to see ya back. Don't worry to much about having a plan, your work always seems to find it's face in due time. That may even be why I enjoy it so much. Keep hackin' away bro!

Great new stuff. Love the dog. The mask is kinda interesting.... are you planning on cutting it off from the main block of wood? Or are you hollowing out the block of wood behind it?

Hey, thanks, nice to be back in the swing of things.
Amate, as usual, just digging into the wood till I find something,
that seems to work for me.

And, along the same lines, Big T, I'm not really sure where I'm
headed. There is a big crack in the middle of the chunk. It works
really nice to leave it all together so I can move the face around
on the bench. Then I may have a buddy slice it down the middle with
his chainsaw. I know one thing for sure, there will be a lot more
wood chips before I'm finished.

Thanks for looking in.

thanks for visiting Chimp and Seeks and anyone else who popped in.
Winter hasn't been too bad up here (especially compared with the east
coast and the middle of the country) but all of my carving has been indoors.
Between skiing and nfl I haven't had a lot of time...but some progress
(I think) is being made....


That's it for the next several days, gotta get the skis wet, and I've heard
there's another football game today.
