Way to go JohnnyP! That is so cool...and Mrs. JohnnyP gets what she wants! I love the pose and the flow of the piece. Killer! Have you decided how to make the dorsal fin yet? Man that looks like a fun carve. I bet it was freaky cutting off all that wood? Post an update when you can. I wanna see more....

Thanks guys,

Conga- The canoe prow has stalled out for a bit, but I plan on getting onto it soon. The big round belly guy is one of my first attempts at chainsaw carving, it was supposed to be a bear, but looks more like a racoon. I would have cut up for firewood a long time ago but it has a kinda obscene gesture that really annoys my sister-in-law, so I keep it around just for that.

John

JP,
The marlin looks great. It should make you feel right at home in sunny FLA. Nice work my friend. Fingers still crossed for you guys.

Gman- Here is the marlin update. After thinking for a bit, I decided to peg it on. The pictures show the dorsal fitted loosely with four dowels. I have to fine tune the gap between the dorsal and the main body yet. I had to cut off some of the dorsal I had left on the original log to make it work.

Benzart- It's hard to be good all the time, sometimes I have to misbehave, but my wife keeps me in line.

McTiki Thanks appreciate the comments.

Loki Thank you for keeping your fingers crossed. Things are progressing and we seem to have our plans a lot more solid now. Sorry we did not make to the east coast of Florida last time we were down.







And this is the start of a tarpon in it's very rough out phase. I am going to add all the fins and top part of tail with separately carved pieces.


Thanks for looking

JP

Nice! Nice!! Nice!!! You've really got a great one rolling there. That dorsal look fantastic. Ditto for the noprat! I can see the flowing movement in the piece already. Killer work man! Crank up that saw and get back on it man! Break time is over....

JP,

Man, that marlin carving is a knock-out! Do you keep all of these or are you selling your work (it looks highly sell-able).

I keep coming back here to look at your marlin. Can you bring this as a carry-on the next time you come to Florida? This would be the shitzz in my shark room!

Thanks Gman- I appreciate the complements. But it was your shark you posted a long time ago that got me interested in carving fish. You gotta finish that one up.

AA. I've been keeping almost all of my stuff, I've given several away and have only sold a couple. I'd like to sell more, but the Michigan taste does not run this way. Small market for this kinda thing up here. But we may be moving sometime soon and I'll be having a Tiki art moving sale.

Benzart- Here are some more fish fighting pics. This is how we catch em up here.





Thanks again
JP
