Thanx Benz & Paipo, I'm all psyched to be carving something again. Gotta pick out some moko for him!
Here's a bit about the sharks...

Wow, that's a long link, hopefully you can get it to work! Yeah, I know all about your area there...NASTY! Poor old Australia too, lots of white pointers that'll wreck your day! I'll take it over here any day! Even know your surf is better!

My elbows are KILLING ME!! Time to stop... Worked all day, and made small progress...me must eat...me must drink. Here's the latest on the Homer Simpson look-a-like/atom bomb head tiki.

Surfin,

Man that looks clean and tight. The over all shape and posture on this piece is perfect. It works very well with what you have going on. I'm liking the little details you are carving now. Don't quit, keep chipping!

LooKIN' GooD, Nice and Clean and Neat. I Love how you have the surface pretty nearly finished before you start with the fancy details, That Really helps get clean and Crisp lines.. Can't wait to see This bugger finished.

Alllllllllllllllrighty. Got sick of sanding...it is what it is. Went ahead and stained it. Later this week I'll put a couple coats of poly on it. This one is gonna be residing outdoors in Palm Beach Gardens Florida, so will need lots of good solid coats.





I'll put more photos up after I coat it.
Thanks for looking, and commenting!

Freddie B!! Who loves ya babe!
Benz- Yeah I seem to love the smooth n fine bit huh? Just gotta work on my SHAPE! I'm yearning to really shape out some legs, like some of yours I've seen, like some of the Hawaiin style ones. That's coming someday soon. The stain is so quick, yet SO changing of the look, I always love that moment. It's my Min-wax, Red Sedona color. Still have a lot of it left to use up!

Well, I'm not in south oz anymore, though I go back to visit family from time to time. The last (and only) fatal attack in this neck of the woods was 1898! Plenty of dolphin encounters here during summer which always make me giggle like little girl...
Back on topic, this new fella really came together. He's got nice classic Poly Pop vibe happening with the mixed styles.
