Wonderful wonderful. I think just watching you carve would be a real
treat. Maybe you could post a few hundred hour video on You Tube

Well, the ppanel will Actually be worth MORE $ than a perfect one, The carve is Excellent and the Spirals mirror or not don't make that big a difference. It's like when a coin gets stamped wrong instead of it being worth face value, it becomes a collectors item worth hundreds more than face value. Don't let the sharks get it cheep for scratch-n-dent (SorryGMAN)

TMec, No one carves this stuff any better than you so you know we Gotta Catch you now and then?

Holy Smokes! The detail is incredible! I was told you could go blind doing that... or was it something else???

Great work. That takes some patience

Gman, Thanks. Most of the drawing in the earlier pics were from 2 years ago, Some I chose not to use and try something else.

Big T, Believe it or not it helps keep your sanity in check, just takes alot of concentration.

Lake, Thanks. Wait till you see the finish I have planned

Seeks, Thanks. Poplar cuts nice, and finishes nice also.

Conga, Thanks. A video huh...... Hmmmmmmm.....

Very, very, very, very, very, nice! Actually, that is F@&$ing awesome. Do you have any paua for his eyes? I'm sure we could find some if you need it. You wanna fly to Florida and do "that" on my Bow Rider?

Give us an idea of the size of this panel. Small, Medium, Grande?

It is my new computer desktop.

Finished it up today.

It's 20" x 30". Paua eyes, Two tone stain job. (Dark Walnut background and my own mix on the guy)

Just over 3.4 million cuts. (according to Bowana) I lost count around 2.1 million?

Now I need to sell him, to buy more wood to do more carvings. Does this cycle ever end?

The pic washed out in the sun? but you get the idea of what it looks like. I'll try to take more later.

Just incredible T-Mec, The eyes really bring him to life as does the stain. The darker background gives him depth and allows him to breathe. He would look Great hanging on my wall for sure.

Wow.

Pretty incredible turnaround time for this beautiful piece of work, Andy.

But I can understand how that happens... once you start you never want to put down the chisels until you see it through.

You get in a groove and its hard to stop... been there... everyday.


One to be proud of, for sure.

What's next!?!?
