Thanks Gman and Benzart

I've been wanting to do one of these for a while. I just got a Foredom, with a recip handpiece and a load of Flexcut chisels. I wouldn't have attempted this piece without those tools. Thanks for the tool advice Benzart.

Gman- here is a preview. It'll be in the mail tomorrow.



This is the first time I carved walnut. What a nice wood to carve. I need to find some more.

Have a great day.

JP

WOW Johnny, that looks awesome! Those tigers look perfect in there. The color of that walnut looks so warm. Did it cut like butta? That club is gonna look great here in my collection and I will enjoy it very much. Thank you!

I can't wait to see what magic you perform with that Foredom and super chisel set - you dogg! I'll be waiting to see the next croc update.....

Everyone - If you are reading this post and like what you see, you need to contact JP about picking up one of his clubs. These are first-rate.

Johnny...your canoe prow looks like a very cool and ambitious project...and your weapons are always
great. You have your work cut out on the "croc prow" and I'm sure you are up to the task.
Thanks for posting...it's been a while since you did something of a larger scale...

Ive been complaining lately about the logs in my log pile so this weekend with the help of my dad, I corrected that problem. These are all fresh. 8 20 inch diameter logs in pine, ash (several clean 6-8 ft logs) and cherry. Happy Happy Happy I have some curved ones to carve jumping fish and maybe one for a Benzart style curved lono type.

For you guys coming this weekend some of these are for you!







This is the update on the crocodile canoe prow. This is slow going. With the new Flexcuts, I keep jumping from one spot to the next trying the different profiles, too much of a good thing.





We were away for part of the weekend and when we got back we didn't have power so I had a lot of checking up to do on all the progress everybody made over the weekend. A lot of wonderful carving. Thanks to everybody who posts their art and progress.

Thanks for looking.
JP

JohnnyP,

Man, those are some healthy logs. Can I have one if I come up this weekend?

I'm loving that canoe prow. You're gonna be loving those flexcuts. He looks great. I can't wait to see where he goes from here. I imagine you'll be working on him for at least a month

The club came in the mail today; it is absolutely awesome! That wood is so smooth and the color is so warm - dude it is so killer. This piece is a keeper for sure. Thank you. It's on display right next to my BK bone carving.

-Gman

The canoe prow is gonna be very cool JP...it does look like it will take a while! Is this
one for your back yard paradise or will it be shipped off to a home far away?
Always did your stuff...we might have come from the same island in a prior life.

We need to take up a collection and get JohnnyP a generator and a wireless computer set-up so we can get regular updates. JP - wassup man? I know you're carving, I was watching you on my Federal satellite people tracker (like the one in MIB). You're starvin' us. Tree's down on the wires? Snow? Volcanic eruption? Tsunami? C'mon, let us see!!!

G, you've been real patient.

Conga, you don't have to go on a hunger strike.

Here is an update on club destined for a fellow TCer. The hard part is done, now just clean up, sanding and detail, and teeth lashing. I apologize for this taking so long.



I haven't been carving much recently because I've been job hunting and if things go right that may end real soon. I'm looking forward to carving some palm.

JP

After several stressful and busy weeks I finally released some nervous energy. I picked up a saw and started in on one of those logs I got a few weeks ago. I haven't been able to pick up a saw in while and it felt good. Mrs. JohnnyP wanted a marlin so I tried to make one for her. I still have to carve the sail, or dorsal fin and have to fix the tail where I messed up the alignment.

Here are some pictures of the rough out. I know it is not exactly tiki, but would fit in most tiki bars.









I haven't had time to post too much lately but I do stop in and check on things almost everyday. Thanks to everybody who has posted and makes this site interesting. Keep up the great work.

Happy Fourth of July!

Thanks for looking

JP
