WOAH,
Beautiful place to be! Can't quite see what you are holding there but I'm sure there izza story to go along with it.
You should find some dead Cypress trees out there, Excellent carving stuff and Mostly all bug Free! Look for some OLD rotten looking logs, the red heartwood will be like brand new. Has a Nice sweet smell when carving it, Very pleasant and Non Noxious.
Where ARE you!

"Where are all the leaves?"

Cypress trees drop in winter - one of the only evergreens to do this. This shot was in like January I think.

Seems that Fay followed me home from St Thomas. Benzo, you got your saw ready? I'll be out hunting logs tomorrow - if I can hang on through the night!

Good to see you back 'in action', swamp thang! Wanna see some carve updates, I'm sure you've been busy with other stuff-I want to see those shoes from the top view!

Duddy- Thanks man.

Pablus - Thanks

JP - Hi! I dunno what his surface carving will look like. A lot will depend on what I see as I am sanding him.

Surfin' - I don't know about stunning......this log was in really rough shape. I'll be happy just to finish him out ok.

tikifreak - Happy 4th to you too. It's been a while aye? Thanks for stopping by.

Benella - Thanks. Hope you have been well.

Benno - I guess this long break wasn't what you meant by "pace yourself"? Sorry.

Conga - Hey Chief! Actually, it is a nasty chunk of wood but I am learning a from it.

Babalu - Me make it look easy? I don't think so brother. This log is working me over.

Seeks - Don't die man! We need you here creating your killer masterpieces.

Tikigap - "I'm thinkin' that it carves nicely." Nope, this particular chunk is chippy and unforgiving.

Brad - Thanks for stopping by. Here is an update on the teko.......

After seeing how long it has been since I carved (and hearing about from Benzo and Tfreak) I went out and worked on the teko this morning. My office was closed because of Fay, so I had nothing planned. It was a good excuse to go out and make chips. I did a little chipping and then broke out the Sanding Maul (thanks Babalu!) for a heavy sanding. He still needs a lot more sanding before I plan the rest of him, but he is on his way......

I can't see his flip-flop.. Oh hang on, you mean jandals?

Here's a thought. If you carved and hid some scary Tikis around that forest you might be able to spook the present owner into selling really cheaply..

Looking good G - c'mon get him finished! Scroll him up & on with the next one!

G- that guy is looking nice!! I'm glad you got back to him. Can't wait to see him finished. Did you decide if you are going to keep him smooth??

I'm glad G finally found his way out of the jungles of Florida before Fay flooded him out. The time off didn't effect his skilz.

Would a heavier hammer help with the finish, or is it more in the light finesse technique?
