Thanks all!

The big chisels should be a big help to me in several places that are a down right pain in the a$$ with my other toolz. I also want to use them in some other places to give me a little more freedom. My Teko has been on a bit of a Holiday, hanging out in one of my big freezers with about 100 stinky shark tissue specimens. I took him out of the freezer a day ago and unwrapped him last night, so I should be able to take a few chops at his legs here in the next few days. He looks good with no additional checking. I was a bit concerned about major cracking due to the freezing as this log is only seasoned a year or so. All is well and I should be able to pick up where I left off and move forward quickly now.

I have a few choices to make and a few decisions a head of me regarding his feet/moko/finish, but I'm enjoying thinking about my options. It's good to have options!

Next carving update = soon!

Well, izzit "Soon" yet? Did you Thaw the Teko yet? Don't dive in with the chisels with him frozen, you Know what will happen. You too, like Buzzy, watch for the "bird beaks" on the V-toolz, I think you are familiar with them?
Carry On.

Yeah Benz, I had a run in with a Felxcut bird beak about a year ago. You wouldn't think that decent toolz would leave the factory with that type of imperfection....but they do. Maybe we should send them a form letter...one from each of us?

This new set I have here looks good to go. That was the first thing I looked at on the v-liner. Thanks for the reminder.

You can carve frozen wood, we do it all the time up here. Don't have much of a choice.

My Flexcuts had the same birds beaks. Thanks for the advice to get rid of them before carving.

So, you've had these carving bars for a while. I think you're holding out on us.

No pressure Ben. I'm on it. I have a busy weekend coming up, but I'm off on Holiday Monday so I should be able to swing some time in the shop. Big chips will fly and there will be smiles all around. But first....the boars.....the Silence of the Hams!

I feel sorry for your neighbors tomorrow! You are going to be letting out and venting some pent up frustration with a bunch of saws running, and we get to see some nice looking carvings later!
