This is your best feat ever.

This is a daunting project and it is being accomplished very well. It might actually be the motivation to get off my duff and start the canoe. (it is the log behind the lono)

And the pool is 58 degrees.

"I think the awesome meter just broke."

You really made me smile. Thanks

Tonight I worked on fitting some small slices of wood into some small gaps on the underside of his thighs/torso joint. Nobody would have seen them, but I knew they were there. Not anymore though. I hope the seams look nice when I knock the area down with the chizzles.

The next step is to make and attach the second chunk of his neck. After that, I am going to mount a bench vise that rotates up on a riser in the middle of one of my carving tables. The vise will hold him the "mount" that protrudes down below his arse. This way I can keep him in the sitting postition and spin him around to work on him. Hopefully it works well and keeps him protected.

Thanks for the replies above, I will respond to each of you when I post my next set of progress pics. Thanks for the encouragement and the nice words.

May be that such things will help you to continue your work...

Yup, what I have in mind is similar, but less sophisticated. Since I can't "roll" him around on my carving tables to get at different areas easily, I need to keep him vertical. A setup similar to that should do the trick. Can I have yours?

Seeks - Thanks. I've wanted to do one of these for a while. Hopefully I will keep working on him.

Mango -

JohnnyP - You better get to work! Start chipping that boat out.

Benno - Thanks for stopping by. Keep smiling - that makes me Happy happy happy!

Today.....I needed to lay a few logs out to get an idea of what I needed to do to get to where I want to think about being. Confused? Me too, but I needed to get the "crane" of his neck to be past natural to creepy weird. I like that.

I also got to invent a new tool. The "hammer-vise"

So here are some pics of what went on here today:





Hammer-Vise!

I'm really enjoying your pencil shim, and the hammer-vice is perfect. It's coming along nicely.

Very ingenious hammer vise. He's coming along nicely taking some serious planning all being well orchestrated. just amazing. Your tiki does looks like it's giving birth with feet up in the stirrups, sorry just one of those odd thoughts that goes through my head.

OHHHHH, this is great. Like a great big puzzle you have to make all the pieces yourself.

It's Hammervice time.

I'll start chalking out the canoe.
