So...
The week-end came and went...
But, I haven't been a total slacker.

Stained...


Carved and stained...


The two dark ones were carved four or five years ago...


Sanded and first coat of sealant...


Carved and waiting for stain...




You better not pout,
You better not cry,
You better not shout,
I'm telling you why...


Because I'll be back after the holidays.



aw geez, that was bad.
I'm sorry.

That last guy is sweeeet! (not to take away from the others, which are all tight) I like the negative spaces in the eyes, and the head/ body proportions within the form of the log work really nicely.

Nice work! I agree, I like the last one best of all. What a cool carving! What are you staining the really dark ones with? I haven't been able to find any dark stain like that.

Thanks!

Thank you all for the kind words.

BigT, if you're referring to the two on the back of the truck, they aren't stained.
They've just been left out in the weather since they were carved.
If you're looking for something really dark, check Basement Kahuna's thread, he has a recipe for something I really want to try.

Okay, so the holiday season has come and gone
I wasn't as productive as I could have been, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
One minute you're busy making plans, the next minute life clears your schedule.

I finally had the time to get back to work on my hobbies...
hmmm, work on hobbies...
Why do we say we work on our hobbies?
A hobby is something you enjoy doing regardless of whether you get paid for it or not.
Work is usually something you don't enjoy, and if you do enjoy it you just say it's what you do, or call it a caree...

Oh sorry.
There must be something shiny nearby, distracting me.

Anyway, I finally had the time...
My wife said she didn't really care for the original staining, so I thought I would adjust it.
The adjustment scared me so I restained it. It looks better in person.


I put the first coat of stain on this guy.


And finally, the two together to get an idea of the color differences.


Feel free to beat me up regarding color choices, it's all new to me.
And as always, thanks for stopping by.
