Hey guys,

I wasn't sure if any of you catz listened to ST, but I guess some of you do Good stuff!

I appreciate the comments from all of you who have stopped by lately. Sorry that I haven't been carving much or very active on the boards. My head just isn't in it right now. I'm hoping I can pick up the toolz and get a little done this weekend.

The one good chunk of cedar I was able to salvage from that big log has checked up real bad. I may go ahead and try to rough a piece out of it and see if I can avoid some of the split areas. Maybe that's what I need..... a little QT with the saw.

Again, sorry for not being 'round.

Hey Benz and Seeks,

I cut into that cedar chunk this morning. The heat got to me after a few hours. I packed it in early, but at least I got something accomplished. Here are some pics...



Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrppppppp!!!!!!



Laters,

Even your throw away pieces are bigger than my cedar log!
Looks like another G-classic!

JohnnyP - Sorry you are so cold. I got cold here today too. Its like 70 and rainy. Brrrrr. Yesterday my thermo hit 90. Aack!

Surfin' - Yeah, using this log is a stretch. It has rot and checks and is pretty much a loser. I'm gonna see what I can do with it though.

Mooney - Thanks for the support man. I'm feeling a bit better which allows me to be a little creative. Speaking of creative, the work you are doing with those Lonos is amazing. That is some fine and fancy stuff. I hope to see you and some of those pieces at Benzo's.

Seeks - YO!

Tikifreak What's for dinner?

The guy I started yesterday has cracks on cracks and dry rot where he has no cracks. Aaack!! After giving in to the heat yesterday, I decided to give him another beating today. The first thing I did was cut off one of his legs...no really, I did. It was rotted and I decided I should put some better wood there. You can see the donor log in one of the pics. After the below the knee amputation procedure, I got to work on his arms and his back. I needed to dig out the area between his elbows and chip out the wood under his pits. I monkeyed around some more and then I began fitting him for his new leg. After the glue dries and I get some shaping done, I will fit him with a few wooded pins to keep him strong.
