Okay, I haven't been on here in a long time. Tikimecula, you rule! Great stuff as always.
When it comes to meticulous detail I think you are way ahead of the curve. Amazing.

Seeks Thanks.

Lake, Furniture is safe. Mrs. T-mec makes sure of that.

Matt, Thanks.

Here is a Maori Spiral practice board I've been chippin on. mostly just for fun but it's turning out kinda cool. Might have to stain it up after it's done.

It started out as a warm up for me before I started in on that panel again, now it has my attention and the pannel is waiting? It's just a 3/4" x 6" piece of poplar I had left over from a shelving thing i did.



Anyway, I have these spirals drawn up in the puter and thought maybe if some of you might want to try one....

Grab it and go for it.

Is that what you want to hypnotize us with your crazy carving?

Only 3,427,800 more cuts until you're done.

Oh come on Bowana, We both know there will be 3,427,803 more cuts to finish this guy up.



Yay! Only 3,399,401 to go! You've got time for side projects!

Wow, a several million cut practice board, that shows dedication. Yes, that should be stained and displayed when you are done.

Yeah, what they all said and Then some. Excellent way to practice, though you should add another side and practice Mirror image spirals so they will be correct on other panels.
Doesn't this stuff drive you Crazy?

Agreed. The mirror image is always difficult to get right on the opposite side of the body. Very fancy spirals you have made there.

Laojia, That's what keeps my sanity in check.

BK, Where you been??? Hows the thumb doing? Keep in touch.

Bowana, Side projects?? I keep 4 carvings going at once. I'm worse than Buzzy. OK mabye not as bad as Buzzy but almost.

JohnnyP, Thanks.

Benz, Thanks for letting everyone know I didn't mirror the knees and shoulders...... Truth be told I was half way through the second knee before I realized what I did. I knew it was not correct but I kept pressing on anyway. Now that everyone knows I'll guess I'll have to start all over What should I do with that messed up panel?

Gman, Thanks. Mirroring images isn't really all that hard. There are a few tricks I have picked up along the way in doing it, Though the ancients would probably say I'm cheating.


Mirrored Spiral Boards for Ben.



Screwed-up Non Mirrored panel.

Screwed up my arse. I saw it in the drawing early on, but still think it is killer. Let me know if you want to sell it - at scratch and dent-type pricing

Beautiful job.

practice board, my butt. Great job on some highly detailed paneling!

Mirrored or not, that piece is amazing. Even though you notice it, 99.9999% of the people who see it won't. They'll see ridiculous detail and an awesome carve.

Really nice job!!!
