I have been reminded that I have a picture to post. It's been a long spring and I think I have most of my non-carving to do list behind me so I should be able to carve again. I roughed out a lono. It'd been a while since I had a saw in my hands doing something other than carving firewood, so I felt kinda lost when I started.








It is poplar wood and is just over 5.5 feet tall.

There is a lot of nice work here lately. Keep up the good work.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback, yes, I'm back and happy to be able to have time to carve again. Here is the latest update (G- I wasn't able to post exactly were you said to). It still needs a massive nose job.

More rough work and rough sanding, next is finish sanding and chisel work.....









If you look at the bottom, the feet section of the log fell off do to a stress crack in the log, so I will have to Gorilla glue it back on some time this week.

Keep carving...

Johnny,

That is a LOT of saw work. Too bad about his Feetz...nothin' a little glue can't fix tho....

He's looking great! Now I can't wait to see you labor over him for months on end - chippin', sanding, nippin', tuckin', a little more chippin'.......repeat until Christmas. Then I guess you'll want to finish sand and stain, right?

We're looking for a career best here....

-G

Nice chops Johnny!

Nice to see an update from ya.... slacker.

No worries, life gets in the way of carving sometimes!


Nothing has kept you from a killer carve job on the Lono!

I know he's bigger than he looks, how about a scale shot?
