HE looks REally Great GMAN, I DO think you should extend the slit up between the eyes and past the eyes , half way to the nose on the front end. Also continue the slit down into the tail using about half the tail for the slit so the slit looks to be more than twice as long as it is now. Here is another one I just Can't wait to See finished. EXCELLENT !

You know, it's funny, as I checked the thread, I thought "this dude's been hang'in with Benzart". After having read the copy, I know why I thought that. Those fish prints (forget the name) are cool. As someone else noted: That octopus is great. Gman, you're a carv'in fool. Love your work and that croc is very cool.

Holy Crap! I'm still trying to get the sawdust out of my ears from Saturday and your whipping up stuff like this. If I wasn't a FSU alumni I would drooling all over this. It's my pleasure to supply you with the material. How did you like working with the Mahogany? Keep up the great work.

Ona, Rodeo, JohnnyP, Loki, Benz, Foamy, AlohaStation, and Sam,

Thanks for the comments on my croc. It was fun to do. I still need to spend some time removing more wood from the inside, but I'm going to let him sit for a while so I can think about it. Working in the mahogany was nice, real nice. I would like to get my gloves on another couple of pieces of that stuff!

Back on the Maori front, I got my abalone eye inlays from BK today. What do you think? This is getting CRAZY!



I likes 'em! Thanks BK!

-Gman

GMan you are freakin us out with all of your great work....really like the log drum and
your GMan/Benzart hybrid is really turning out nice. As much time as I spend pounding on drums...
I guess it's time to do a log drum too. Great "eye" for the 'gator inside the wood.

Conga,

You of all people NEED a log drum. Sounds like a good project for this weekend? I'll expect to see pics of your drum on Saturday!

The croc looks cool, but that maori is really popping with those abalone eyes! A real TCer project that one.
