Looks great FinkD, The clear coat really brings out the grain in him. Some Lucky TC'r will have a great piece if they can afford it. Very well done Sir, you've come a Long way.

Thanks Flynny. I haven't carved Cocobolo yet, I'll have to try it!

Special thanks to you Ben! Thanks for all the advice.

This guy is packed in silicone right now forming a resin mold. I'll be the first to admit that he is heavily influenced by a nearby famous carver.



Thanks everybody!

Finkdaddy....the close proximity to Ben is rubbing off...you have stepped it

I think were heading for a small army of Moai's benz's influence spreads far and wide. Nice work

Nice detail with the flower, and I really like how you handled the ol' eye bone.

Thanks again everybody for the wonderful words. I'm still trying to keep up with you guys but there's so far to go!

Here is one I'm still working on. It's a mini surfboard carved in bass wood. Boy, Conga, I'm going to have to get one of your basswood logs. I can't believe how smooth it cuts! It's carved with a combination of power tools and one of Benzart's famous hook-knives.







I'm going to make a mold of this one too so I can get into some fun color combos.

Thanks for looking!

supply of the stuff....cheep!

WOW! I was thinking about doing a little tiki guy in front of a surfboard soon, but this looks great!!! Combining your last two ideas, I think I want to make myself a surfboard with a hibiscus on it. I love this idea! Can't wait to see the resin cast colors.

Thanks Conga! I see you've had some great carving weather up there. Now get outside and carve!

Mieko, thanks a ton. I have a couple more surf boards in the works, one will have a hibiscus pattern, and one will be a big wave pattern. Make sure you take some pics and let us see what you're up to.

i just use it for cutting into the wood pretty much.
