How'd you cut your finger marking out the design?? I'm loving the use of laser technology too!

Oh c'mon Aaron, the least you could have done is run your hand through a circular saw, maybe cut into your thigh with a chainsaw (ouch, seen that done), or smashed your thumb with a two-ton sledge!!

All kidding aside, I'm sorry to see you got bit. How did you get it? It looks like a knife cut, but it doesn't look like you were at the knife stage yet? Possibly a large chisel? At least your tools are sharp!

Either/anyway, I hope you heal up quick. Finger cuts suck; as we all use our hands so much. I was lucky, my cut was on my head and I rarely ever use it

Give it a few days to start knitting and then wear a big 'ol honkin' glove, baby it, and get back to showing us what you were gonna show us. I've really been missing the AA posts.

Take care and heal up,

Gman

Awwwwww, It's just a finger--you've got 9 more! Jabbed my palm w/ a chisel a few months ago-called wife at the hospital where she works and the thoracic surgeon she works for hooked us up with a suture kit and some 'dermabond'--I opted for the dermabond. It's like superglue for cuts... get some if you can, it's a handy thing to have in the toolbox. Lots less cumbersome than stitches--almost like being instantly healed.

That Hau is looking good, I can see more grain and figuration now--I'm excited to see your progress.

(A little background) Andy sold me a bandsaw a while back. Coincidentally, I just called him on Saturday to figure out some blade adjustments. Well, turns out a couple of blade guides were broken, so I had to switch over to the pull saw and do it the old fashioned way. I had the piece in the bench vise... and...

Okay, dammit! I'll admit I gashed my finger with a lousy hand saw! Those japanese saws do have serrated edges on both sides, though... ya know.

Aaron, you are supposed to be carving the Wood, Not the Finger!. Thanks for the pix of the fair stuff. There was Really some Nice stuff there. I think the judges were paid off though, because your stuff should have gotten first Over ALl the other junk, as good as it was.
Wrap up the finger and get to work now!

He slices he dices he makes julienne fingers! Hey I'm sorry for the cut. Just healed from one myself. Although much smaller, it was from a v in my hook knife set and so I have a very cute scar. After helping me get bandaged up good Mrs. 8FT immediately ordered me a carving glove. You know we love the Marqs so Keep the pictures coming!

Hey, guys - thanks for the bump! The long and short of it is no, not much carving here in the last while. I try not to post trivial progress shots, but to appease my pals, this slightly advanced rough-out is ALL I've got for now.



Sad, but true!

Nina & I have been working to make a big life-changing move, and that has been taking up most of our spare time lately. Quite a few TC members have helped us out on the research end (much appreciated!), including several here on the Creating Forum. I'll try to share the whole story with everyone once the wheels actually start turning. It's just that there are lots of details to be worked out and I don't want to jinx it!

Suffice it to say that I hope to have a nice big basement workshop and lots more time for carving in the not-too-distant future. I'll definitely stay active here on TC, but don't expect to see much tiki output from me in the next few months.

Cheers,

Aaron

Hi Aaron,

Just sitting here on vacation in Colorado digesting your thread...real impressive!

I truly dig your drawing techniques, and your attention to detail. I also really admire that you did most of this work in the park...that shows much love for the craft. Good luck on the new studio space.

I've learned a great deal from you...Thanks.

On to Benzart's work now...
