Well I seem to be experiencing some of the same issues as Tikidav is with this latest one...stringy - splintery fiber. Quite a bit different feel than those last two I carved...You say Miniwax wood hardener huh? I will see if I can find some.

The wedding set turned out really great. You did a fantastic job on it. I don't think it could have been any better. Thanks for the pictures.

Well, it's been a while since my last post. I find that I need to switch hit between hobbies...At any rate, I'm back to the carving hobby for a minute...

That one 6' log that I was working on is just to stringy to pull off the design I had in mind for it...I will have to re-think the direction on it.

In the mean time, I picked the pace back up on number 1. It's starting to morph into something else now...still have my work cut out to try and get the crossed limbs to work on this one...have an idea...we'll see.

Stupid Rotten Palmwood! If you locate any Minwax wood hardener locally, let me know where you got it, eh? I wasn't able to procure any.

Nice carvings, Rick (despite the SRP)! You've got a unique style that is all your own.

Rock on, Bruddah!

Nice going Babalu, that extra definition made all the difference in the world. Too many times we quit on a carving when the least bit of cleanup and definition will really complete it. Your piece is a perfect before and after photo of that wee bit of action gaining Huge changes. Very well done!
