OK now I got my system down pat. Wear this adjustable band around my forearm to relieve pressure on my muscles...and take breaks to put some ice on my right arm! MAN you gotta be popeye to carve around the clock. Worked 9 hours on Saturday with one mini break, probably 7 or 8 today. Beautiful day, man all the other things I could of done. Ohhhhh wellll.
As usual, this wood is weird all over the place. Wet in some areas, dry and cracked in others, black rotted parts, stuff that looks like bark on the INSIDE! These logs came from Maine, and my guess is these trees had rough lives! Lots of Nor'easters, storms, weather, disasters, all which make a stressful career of being a tree. I have had a couple of goodies, but every now and again (the last 2) it's scary.
I really need to get some of Gman's red cedar!
Anyway, here take a look...I did a good job hiding the trouble spots!

Holy crap! Dude, that is sick! I admire your drive to pull off the epic sessions, but be careful or the pain gods will punish you severely! This "SurfinTiki" is absolutely magnificent! I bet being Maine tree is tough, the poor bugger - but how many Maine trees get to end up as a masterpiece like this one? You've probably said earlier, but is this guy a commission or a keeper? I vote keeper......

Stoked for you!,

G

Egadz! Worked over 12 hours on Saturday, most of today. And I still see HOURS worth of cleaning up I could do...guess what...I aint gonna.
It's done. Except for the staining. I could of engraved "surfintiki" on it, or put a hibiscus on the back of the surfboard...NAHHHH.
Break time!

Shazam!!! Dude, don't stop. Don't get me wrong, this is a seriously pimped carving for sure, but the hibiscus sounds great and so does putting your name on it. This is one of those "once in a lifetime" pieces....don't quit on him. If you do, you will always wonder what if.......
