Thank you guys.

Pappy yes this was made of red oak. If you are going to try this use a different wood. It wasn't that oak is too hard, it was that it is very brittle between the grain and was difficult the get a smooth cut.

Gman NONO!!!!! Maybe. OK

Gman

Well, I debated about posting the rough-out of a lono.













Then you asked again









So here is the lono rough out of pine. Needs a lot of work as you can see. A long way to go.

Hi.
Gman knows I’ve been holding out, hence the joke earlier. With hesitation I am going to post. Earlier in this thread Benzart told me to challenge myself with something I didn’t think I can do. I thought for a long time and finally I asked Benzart for permission to copy one of his Lonos as they are incredible masterpieces. What I am showing is a learning tool based on a lesson plan Benzart has established. Benzart has shown us wonderful step by steps and through that processes I am going to try to learn. This is my homework. When it all said and done, I hope to be a better carver. Posting here where everyone can see will make me carve much more carefully than I would normally because everybody has already seen what a true master (Benzart) did.

Here goes nothing. Heavy criticism wanted. Tips and Techniques wanted. Candy coating not required.

Here is the rough out of the lono. Pine log. Only chainsaw and some light angle grinder at this stage. It was too wet to go much further so it sat inside for a week. It dried an amazing amount in a week inside and is ready for further work.









Thanks

JP

JohnnyP,

Way to go! I can't wait to see the progress shots on this guy to see what you do with him. He looks great so far!

Lookin' real good there... that'll be a keeper.

I see a Dewalt. Nice choice.
After burning up other grinders I got the Dewalt. It takes everything I can dish out and more.

Good luck!

JP, this is going to be fun. What a great challenge. It would be cool if we could all step up to the challenge and try this. Assuming Benz wouldnt mind. Best of luck JP and keep up the great step by step.

Thanks guys.

Lakesurfer. I've been happy with the Dewalt. I did burn one up already but it was my fault. I used an extension cord that was the wrong gauge.

Loki thanks for the support. I just hope I can meet Benzart's expectations.

Tfisheart 35 degrees here. Its a heatwave. I envy you guys in the south.

We had a small accident in the kitchen yesterday and broke one of our hurricane glasses. Only the base shattered off the stem leaving the rest of the glass undamaged. As I was tossing it into the trash a vision popped into my head. This is what I came up with. A drink holder thing. I thought it was neat concept and I might make a complete set with different faces.

Other than this it has been a real unproductive carving weekend.

JohnnyP,

You're a stronger man than me, I would have been out hammering on that Lono with the saw - even in the snow! Or were you, and you're just holding out on everyone - again???? Hmmm. Nice glass holder BTW
