I can see this guy is REALLY gonna have a Bad Bite with his 357 teeth, the bitee doesn't stand a chance. I Also love the length of the stick to keep the bitee's teetd far away from your tasty little fingers. Gators LOVE Gman fingerz!

Man. One project after another! I love it.

So the Croc-bonker is a walking-staff cum pig-smasher I take it? Awesome shape to the head. Look out piggies; if this thing doesnt work, he's got a bloody great Hammer in the other hand. R.I.Piggies...

Cool step by step on the teko-teko too mate; Ill be referring to that one myself. Hope you're going to keep going with it...

Top skills G!

STILL kickin azz, aint ya? I really like that croc-headed hog spanker. I bet that'lll leave a mark! Hickory, ay? That's some serious hard wood--I had to make a huge set of kitchen cabinets and office furniture out of it when I used to work in a cab/furn shop. It would knock the carbide tips off saw blades and router bits occassionally--and that $#!% hurts when it hits you!

zlaterz,

I had a chance to see the last few carvings the Gman has done, I have to say they show much better in person than they do in photos. They are perfect in every way. He has the talent!!

The pictures of the croc stick with his toes really shows the scale well. This a fine piece executed very well for a working hunting device. Crocs should shudder.

I missed out on seeing the newest piece roughed out in the last pictures, looks good.

As far as the pighammer, it was my pleasure to deliver the little whittled on stick.

Aloha guyz, and thanks for all the kind words. You make me smile! Bean busy here moving the Doc a thousand miles and working on and testing some alligator trapping equipment so I don't get killed. I might anyway, but oh well.....

I should be back to carving tomorrow and hope to post progress on either the BIG Chief figure carving or the Little Chief. I've been picking at both of them but haven't made enough progress to photograph.

Once again, thanks for stopping in, looking around, and leaving the notes. It is you guyz who keep me working on island/primitive anthropomorphic carvings. Thanks.

-G

What the?? Is that a whacking stick for gators? The reptilian equivalent of PIGHAMMER?

I think it will be a Bit more power4ful than the pig hammer when he finishes inserting the Bang Stick down it's throat. Probably the equivalent of a ,357 rifle barrel which will pack a mighty punch or a big bite, What ever you call it, it's the reason you always see the hole in the gator skull .
Gman, he looks great but where are you?

Yes, a CrocHammer. I am a licensed alligator trapper and this is an embellishment on a piece of gear required by the government.

Hey All,

Here are few progress pics of the Little Chief - as promised. I rounded him in with chisels and have sanded his face so I can start cutting in his facial features. Don't mind the pen and pencil markings on him....that's just me thinking and playing. Once again, these are for some of the new guys. I used the same chisels I listed in the previous post for this guy.













(Half A$$ed)















Hope these help a few of you,

G

Hey Ben, thanks. Nope I haven't been kidnapped, I've been busy with Gov work and trying to get the Doc settled at her new location. I've also been focusing on the upcoming hunting seasons. I have lots to do on the land and it won't be getting any easier on this old busted a$$ body of mine - too much hard mileage. I'll try to post more often, but my motivation is running a bit low.

-Gman
