Those would be JAPANESE fish rubbings, Benno! I have not been working with the fishies much lately. I have had a lot of requests for pieces, but little drive to get painting and make it happen. Do they make a pill for this?

Yeah, they got pills for it, ask any local doc
The article was about Chinese Fish rubbings and I wanted to call and tell them they were wrong but they had all this Chinese stuff going on so I figured the China peeps had finally started making cheap copies like they have done with the Netsuke and everything else.
You are Correct it SHOULD be Japanese tho.
How ya been?
I'mgonna call you this afternoon!

Happy Thanksgiving guys.

I'm sorry I have not been able to put up any work here the last while. I've been very busy hunting all around the state, but I have tried quite hard to pick up the toolz and chip a bit on the tekoteko......only it hasn't been working. I took last weekend off from everything and really tried to get into the wood; no dice. When it just isn't there for me, it just won't happen...I can't force it. We'll see what happens in the next few weeks.

I hope you all are enjoying this special time with your families.

-G

I dusted off my toolz today and made some chips. It felt good to do some work on my guy and relax in the yard with the E-Dogg. I'm almost done grocery shopping for the year, so hopefully I will be able to start concentrating on making stuff out of wood again. I attached a few pics from today. First, one of my freezers : ) Then a few pics of that knife I was making. I finished it up and my friend made me up a nice sheath from alligator hide. The other pics are of my carving as I played around today...

Benno - Yeah, I guess. I've been bit many times from holding the wrong end of the chizzels - you get pretty F-ed up if hold them backards fer too long. They let you know quick if you're doing it wrong.

Surfin - Yeah, this guy has lots of turns, twists, and curves. I took some weird angle shots so you can seez.

Conga - Howdey. Thanks for lookin. I took a bunch more stupid pics here as I did a little work this morning. My hibiscus was blooming today, so I put a flower in the pics just for you. You cold yet?

I'm off for an alligator and fish fry - laters....

Gap - Howzzit? Glad to see you are still kickin' around the joint! How are you? Are you gonna show us some pics of what you are choppin' at? C'mon, please? The Blade of that knife is from an old Buck skinner that had been used and abused. I figured i could get some more use out of it if I made a new handle for it. Now that I have the sheath too, it will be hitting the swamps with me on many adventures. Those sconces are something JohnnyP found in a pic. I'm not sure where they are from, but they look like caimans to me. Thanks for dropping me a note.

Marcus - So how is our famous carver from down under? I'm glad you came up for air and gave us an update. That new NZ-styled piece you posted is to die for. Since you like my little guy, why don't we trade - straight up. Send me your address and I'll ship him on down. You can keep your big guy for a little while for some marketing, but then pleaze ship him on out to my address. Thanks.

Freak - When are you coming down for a weekend?

-G$
