Man I LOVE this part of the carving where the piece of wood starts to get tough and not let you just "Have" anything, makes you really work for it. The clean-up and detail refinement makes it and this guy looks like he's under control. Just keeps getting better and better!
Love the skinner skin, Cool and I bet the 'Gators get one look at that and just Jump right in Da Boat!
Feels better!

Hey Mooney, yeah, lots of fun stuffs here. Thanks for lookin' in.

I spent a few hours chipping and sanding today. He's getting closer. I'm going to leave some chizzel texture in a few spotz. A little more cleaning up and then this guy will get the stain.

Seeks - This is the most B@stard piece of cedar I have used yet. I knew it was a crapper when I started: the log was BIG and full of ants, termites, and metal wire; and, the central core of the log was rotted out with other fungus all around. I cut back that big old log to many smaller pieces. This was the largest of the pieces I could salvage. It dried OK, but I had a lot of cracking to manage and it was chippy as all Hell to carve. I really had to keep the toolz super sharp and be ready for a chip-out at any second. Heck, I even cut off his left leg and replaced it with another piece of cedar as it was too far gone to work with. Look back in my thread and you will see my tiki leg amputation/reconstruction. Anywho, the carving part is done and he has his first coat of finish. Lots more finishing work to come, as time allows. Here are some pics:















And here is a pic of the Crawler all completed:

Yeahyhhh. It is nice to see this one done. It might have started as a crappy piece of wood, but it is now a prominate work of art.

Babalu - Heya. Let's hope the year of the "G" is a good one. Happy New Year my friend.

Tfreak - Groovy!

Benno - I dunno about breathing, but he is done. I hopee you likee.

Conga - Thanks for the wordz. I dunno what is next. I was thinking about making a string of cork duck decoys. I used to make decoys when I was younger and really enjoyed it. I also need to make a few big "tiki" guys for friends, but I won't post them here. You know the kind....

Johnny - Thanks for the flattering comment, although he isn't much...I like him.

Marcus - Thanks for stopping by for a lookee. I appreciate your support.

So here it is, my last post for 2008. Here are some pics of the little "Tekoteko" all done. I hope you like him. I wanted to get him done so I could maintain my quota of one "Tekoteko" per year.

I want to send all my best wishes to each of the special people here tonight. Please be safe and have a great NEW YEAR. I look forward to interacting with you all and creating more fun stuff in 2009.
