Hello all. Thanks for the nice replies and words of encouragement. You make me smile.

Today I decided to start something that I've wanted to do for a while. It is gonna be a stink-load of work, so I've been putting it off. Anyway, I've got a list of at least 5 different pieces I want to make for myself, all of them very complex. I figure I better get going as I'm not getting any younger and my injuries keep getting worse. Nuff about that. So this guy I started today is known as the Bow Rider here in G-land. I plan on taking him out croc hunting this year on the BOILER MAKER. After that, hopefully he will get to ride on the bow of JohnnyP's giant war canoe. I'm making him with a flat base/attachment point in his crotch so he can sit on a boat mount or on a display mount in the ManRoom.

I worked for a while today, but it is really hot here today. It was tough on me with the mask, chaps, and all the other saftey gear I use. I quit about 3:00 and took a dip in the pool. Johnny, my pool is 86 degrees....what's yours like?

So here is my master plan.....you need to understand that this is a very precise technical drawing. I used a slide rule and everything....


And so the the work began. This carving will require me to use 6 different logs and then two small chunks for his feetz (so the grain goez the right way and he's not so fragile). I was tired and my left arm was killing me just after I carried the logs and my sawz to the side yard. I wanted to call it quitz right then. The big log is his torso. The other logs are legs, arms, and his head. His pieces parts will get glued pinned with big oak dowels. I need to buy a planer/joiner.

















If I work hard enough, he may look something like this when he is finished......


-G$

Wow GMAN, What a project, I'm really impressed that you would undertake it but knowing you, I'm sure it will end up being a typical GMAN Knockout! He looks great so far, you gonna be finished tomorrow?
