GMAN! Funny you should ask

I've been distracted from carving for some time now, but tonight, I got my pendant from Paipo and got inspired to try to finish the pig. I've hit a serious obstacle however, as illustrated in the accompanying photos.

I roughed out the eyes tonight. The eye on the left (His right eye) has a huge hole in it that could not be avoided. It's a root ball afterall, so there's holes all over it.

After measuring GMAN's real pigs, I found the proportionate place to put the eyes, and one ended up
there.

Maybe you guys can help me out here. Should I leave it alone, and what the hell? Or should I jam a chip of walnut in there with some glue to fill it in, or should I drill both out and put some inlay in there, or what?

I suck at most things carving, and inlay is right at the top of that list, so I'm skeptical of any chance for success.

Me and the pig are all ears.

And thanks for the models and the inquiry GMAN. May the saw be with you.

It looks like to me that the eye is winking. I kinda like it as it is. Maybe you wanna just leave it?

I say keep going with it as is. We all have to deal with imperfections in wood - it's one of the things that makes each piece special. Very nice! Is he hollow yet?

Thanks for the direction Will and GMan...

Yes, it's hollowed out. It could go a little more too. I'll show a pic of the inside later today. It's sounding pretty good!

Thanks for looking and helpin with that decision.

TG,

Leave enough wall thickness so you can outline some folded legs on there if you want. I'll send you some pics of crocs done this way. I'll send them when I get home. This is a super cool projects man! Nice job!

JohnnyP....shoot him some pics of croc drums with legs carved into the sides. I bet he could make real nice ones that look like the hog is laying down.

What a great idea Tikigap. I missed the part about the piggie being a drum.
Great concept and the beaters do look like pigs feet...pickle them!
