Ditto what Gman, Ben and everyone else said Grasshopper. Grasshopper?
Nice work buddy, but I did notice that the grass is a little long in
spots.

Thanks Ben, Gman, Conga, Marcus, and everyone else who visits me!!
Well, I finally finished my Big Fink #1. I'm very happy with the final result, especially the finish since I was a bit worried about it at the begining of the project. I'm hoping to buy some tools with this guy.




I've started a new piece. It's much, much shorter, but it's a full round piece. I'll post pics when it starts to look like something.

Thanks again everybody!

Finky,

Man, what a fabulous piece you made out of that dusty old log! I am so happy to see you working big and to see this first piece come out so perfect. My hat is off to you sir, this rules!

If this is what your first Big Fink finished like....I can't wait to see the next! GO FINKY!!!

-G

That turned out beautiful. The two-toned stain job is perfect. That log was really dry and I had my doubts - not any more! Well done.

Thank you everybody! I had a lot of fun and learned a whole bunch with this one. It's interesting because the things that would normally be teeny, tiny details on a pendant become huge features on a full-sized piece.

Here is the next one I've started. It's already come out completely different than my original idea, and I'm sure by the time I'm done he'll be even more different still.


Big Fink #1 is still available. I've featured him on my website too at
The Leeward Lounge.

Thanks for looking!!

Big Fink #1 is awesome!!! Nice detail work and finish! I think your neighbor is rubbing some of that Port St. Lucie talent off on you. I can see the 'Benfluence" in your latest works. Keep it up, bro!
