Excellent!! I liked the grain - did you think about using a lighter stain?

The Florida Tarzan strikes again. Nice of you to come out of the bog and carve for us. (you'll get you chance to wrestle a gator when the lake levels go down)

Benno - He's not so sweet, actually he's as ugly on the inside as he is on the outside. He's not a bitter but he is a nasty little bugger.

Tikifreak - Thanks man. No oil for him, I changed my mind. I used oil on his first finish, but opted for a multi-layer type finish (I'm screwing around and learning new stuff). I'll use steel wool to knock down the shine on his ebony top coats and let the brown under-finish show through. This will look like age/wear. I've done some testing and I like what I've been able to do. I want him to look like the old guys in the bookz.

Benella - Thanks Ben, I'm glad you like him.

Kiwishaman - He IS mean....and he wants to git YOU!

Surfin' - He didn't take shape real fast. It took four sessions to get him here - but I had to let the wood dry up as he was getting all fuzzy when I was sanding.

Paipo - I'm glad you approve! He was asking for the black stuff. I don't like the way ficus/rubberwood takes stain anyway.

Conga - Thank for the note buddy!

Aloha - Gman no likee the ficus grain. I did consider a lighter finish, but I wanted him to get him finished out like the guyz in the books that inspired him.

JohnnyP - G8tr B8!!!

Seeks - Me glad you likee!

All - here are a few pics of him with his final topcoat. He will now get scuffed up with 0000 steel wool and he'll lose his shine and pick up a nice dull aged look with lighter colored wear areas around his face and other high spots.





Laters,

G

Hey Babs, thanks for the note. Yeah man, I'm game for a trip out to the left coast. I've got a steady stream of activities planned until about February....maybe I can swing on out then? It would be fun to hang with you and the Buzzmeister et al. I'll be sure to bring lots of bail money and be on good behavior.....'cause nearly everything I like to do is illegal in California.

I had a visit from MBL today. He dropped by in his new Phat Caddy - all he needs is big fly hat and he could be a stone cold pimp! We planned to do a little carving, shoot the s%^t, and hang with the E-dogg. We started a medium sized carving today and we'll likely be chipping on him for the next few weeks. Here are a few pics. I'll post the rest over on his thread.
