Too much, Andy.

Some very sweet chipping there.

Some tiny, tiny cuts there.

Your eyes have got to be buggin after just 10 minutes.


(On the weather front, we almost hit 80 today. Spent half the day carving outside. I think we're done with winter finally.)

Don't ya hate it when you spend 50+ hours carving, and you go grab the stain can and it's empty?? it's all done minus the finish.

phew. I thought the rest was going to read '...and then your workshop burns down', or something equally horrific..

That paddle is insane! Quick, run down to the 24hr Dept. store and get what you need.. hurry!

Yep. Ya scared me there. I thought, oh shit, it broke in two? Or something equally or more horrible.

I just don't have words for it anymore... I'd just stand there and stammer.

Off the hook Andy... seriously.

Hold on tight to this one... show the grandkids someday.

Thanks everyone, didn't mean to scare anybody...

I just couldn't seem to get a good nights sleep with the paddle this close to being finished. I ended up playing hooky from work, got my stain situation worked out this morning, and after a whole lotta hours, and more Pepsi's than i can count, I got this one finished up.

On the originals the top handle would be round, I made it flat on the front and back so it would be easier to hang on the wall.











This one will more than likely stay with me, and hang on my wall. Not sure i could let it go after the time i put into it. Unless i could have an original.....but i don't have the $30-$50k to buy an original so this one will have to do.

Thanks for the comments, hope you enjoy the pictures.

That looks Crazy Good!

The human figures around the top of the handle really finish it off well. I don't remember seeing those at the chop, maybe you hadn't got that far.
