JohnnyP rules! 2x Pighammers in one slab...I hope you get them both out. I do NEED the original though. If I do HAVE to come and "get" it from you, it won't be until spring. My surgical implants and other ruined joints won't let me play in the cold anymore....

I was wondering if that croc hot hit the fire pit I'm glad he is still on the bench. Great stuff from you Johnny, kep it up!

There is a lot of great stuff being posted recently. Keep up the good work.

Benzart, BK and Conga- Thanks I appreciate the complement coming from you guys. Conga, I'd love to take a cruise deep into the heart of New Guinea, it would be hard to get me to leave, and I'd need a big boat to hold all the carvings I'd need to buy. I have to settle on any book I can get my hands on.

Gman and Tama- No the croc canoe prow was not firewood, just too many other things to work on, I only get a couple hours a week to carve so this one waited awhile. Tama, I separated the two piggie hammers so they didn't have too much fun.

Thank you Benella.

Hammer Time continues.

Here is the full size prototype of the Vanuatu Slit Gong. I am glad I did a prototype, as I learned a lot from this one.

Can you see it under the dusting of snow and sawdust. I think I am the first one to post snow pics this season. (I wasn't Congatiki was)



And inside to dry a bit.



Thanks for looking.

JP

Excellent stuff JPigH! The figure-style gong is looking sweet. That will be top shelf no doubt! I'm also gad you got those hammers separated. That was freaking me out. It takes dedicated man to be out working the saw in the snow. We all know how dedicated you are to your art, so we are not really surprised. Thanks for posting pics.

Alright Johnny, I can see another museum piece coming with the drum. Will be watching this one
closely to get some tips, I have a nice long narrow log that would make a nice drum, if i can do it.
And another thing, don't get that macho feeling about winter, I posted a snow pic seven hours
ahead of you! {I would insert smiley face if I knew how to do it.}

JP, Looking Great. This Slit drum is going to be KILLER! How do you know when the walls of the drum are thin enough?? Excellent!

I stand corrected. Original post updated. You are a lot colder up there than we are, so I concede.

Nice start already! I've never gotten around to doing a Vanuatu drum, but studied them for a long time after seeing them on a season of Survivor.

I've got you both beat... we got hammered by 14 inches on Friday... and while it may not be as cold as Conga, it was still 8 this morning... which is too fricken cold in my book. 60 one day, 14 inches of snow the next. I'm in the basement until at least April!

Hey Pighammer,

What's on tap for this weekend? Are you carving or harvesting?

Here is the drum picts I promised earlier. TC was down that night so I could't upload them and I've been out of town for a while and just got back. Hopefully more progress tomorrow with more detail on the head and face. It is 7'6" tall.







This is the prototype and I won't sand it smooth until it dries memory, I am on to the the non prototype drum now that will be the same size. I made a few small mistakes on this one that I hopefully won't make again.

Thanks for looking.

JP

JohnnyPighammer,

This looks like he's gonna be a great one. If this one has "mistakes", I can't wait to see the other one! It's always geat to see the work you can do with your chainsaw. I love it. Saw Jockeys Rule!

I'll be watching for your update tomorrow!

-G

Really JP! That slot - I'm envious. Nice work - I can only hope some day.

Can you describe the "small mistakes" made on this piece, for my learning experience? It looks damn nice to me.

You lookin' at it with a macro lens? That is when the tease will get ya... it's like hangin drywall. I can do that. But tape and spack? It takes me literally a week a wall because I'm so anal and lookin at it with a microscope.

But please do describe what mistakes you've made - for my benefit if nothing else!

TG
