Silverline, they were lucky to have you! I think it's great to show your work even if it's not for sale. Nice self portrait with the Marq, BTW. Your photography skills are right on par with the carving!

Congrats, It doesn't surprise me, he looks perfect. It will be nice to hear what kind of feedback you get from the "Highbrow" set.

He's DONE! I'm not all that thrilled with how this one turned out, though. The oak was a real pain in the plunge-cuts so I'm afraid I didn't go as deep as I should have. Oh well, he's DONE, so time to move on to the next one! BTW, this one's for sale, but I really don't know where to start, price-wise. And suggestions would be VERY helpful!

Wow Silverline, just found your thread, you've got some amazing stuff here! I love how the cracks came out in the oak piece, I'm struggling with some cracks right now, and it's nice to see that a piece can still look really sharp with cracks in it.
How are you liking that Economy Flexshaft carver that you got last year? Still using it?

Sl, That Oak is So nice, you should do a Whole series out of it. Good thing you aren't in the UK where thay carve Oak for breakfast every day. They LOVE carving OAK
Your Oak piece is excellent!

That last piece is sooo awesome. The cracks give it a well aged appearance that enhance the piece in my opinion. I like the way that each piece you've chosen to do is pretty different from the previous. Quite a groovy evolution!

Thanks everybody for the kind words. You know, there's always something you think you'd do differently if you had the chance. That's why you can never stop carving I guess! This guy is just under 3 feet tall. That dense oak tips the scales at around 80 lbs.

Agreed, very very nice....I like it and the contrast between the dark wood and the white is terrific! Great job!!!

I like it. I would give it the BK aging treatment though. Dull down the paint a bit. It has some cracks already, so, the BK treatment would only enhance that classic look.
