Thanks Marcus. I'll keep going. Probably no more carving for a few days.

In the meantime, I have posted several of my gyotaku paintings for sale in the Marketplace. I hope you guys like some of them.

Looking Great as Usual GMAN. Somehow I think you must have been getting some first hand maori carving lessons on the sly because you are Really Rippin' em up there. Cool stuff, I Love it!

Great progress shots, We should all take more and post more of them. You can really learn a lot, especially from the pictures where only half is done and other half is left at some stage in between.
Thanks

Hey Ben, Johnny, and Craig. Thanks for stopping by and checking in. I've been off doing other tasks and working on other projects. Been building some fun stuff, but none of it for here. I have a few weeks worth of work and prep still to do, so likely no carving on either of the figures I have going for a bit.

Hey Tama, thanks for the note. Yeah I'm checking in here every day, but doing other stuff. Been building gator gear, spending time up on my land, and doing a bit of custom blade work. I'm having a blast, and yes, focusing on local wildlife. Hope all is well with you, last I checked the big girl had some nice bids. I hope that one does well for you. You deserve all you can get, she's a beautiful stone. Stand by, more chips will be flying at the shop here soon.......

-Gman

OK Ben, here are a few pics of some of the gear that will be making the trip with me and the CrocHammer handle. Much of the steel/machine work was done by Cooter. Thanks Cooter. Also pictured is a new skinner I purchased as a gift to myself. It is a nice quality handmade knife from a local knifemaker. I've spent a little time dehorning/polishing it so it doesn't bite, and getting it ready for real use. I have never allowed myself to own an expensive knife like this, and my primary skinners are fairly rough working pieces - but are made from killer steel. This one won't be pretty for long, especially once it cleans a few boars and a gator or two. Hopefully it is up to the task and will be around for a long time.

Thanks GMAN, That's some serious Heavy Metal, I feel sorry for the poor gators, they don't stand a chance. Take your time and wait for the big ones and most of all Be Careful.
That skinner is One Pretty piece of steel, I bet it wasn't cheep!

OK, Enough playing around now, time to get back to Tiki work!

Hey GMAN: Nice new work tools you got there. Can't wait to see some "in progress" shots of them in action, and of course, the body of work that comes from them.
I just watched Man vs. Wild: the Florida episode, so I think I might be up for finally heading east. Might need to stop by and borrow a couple of them tools just in case I run into a salty during mating season.

Buzzy Out!

Benz, Buzzy, and Grl,

Thanks for stopping by. I know that wasn't a usual carving post, but it IS something I've been carving on AND the pics were requested. So....

Benzo - Nope, not cheap, but I liked it. Soon I will bring the anthropomorphic carving back. For now though, I must slave for The Man. I have two Maori-STYLE figures to finish and then I'll be on to something else - something very different.

Buzz - I hope you survive your trip to the Florida wilds. I think most of the Disney and Universal trails are paved and most of the nasty-nasties have been removed; you'll be fine. Hopefully you can just purchase concessions and will not have to resort to eating native species raw. However, watching Man VS Wild will give you some basic ideas of how to get out and survive should the park and beach crowds prove to be too much for you. Good luck Sir!

Grl - always nice to hear from you....How are things in MA? I miss it up there. I'll be up again soon; I'll give you a shout.

-Gman

Gman-
Your work has progressed to a point where marine biology may be your hobby & carving a full time venture. Your work is awesome!
I've been out of it for some time now. My wife's MS has progressed to a point where she needs more help. With her persuAding I am gearing up and started a 6' Tiki project.
Be Well
Ray
