Thanks Surf-n-Turf, Gman, and Ben!

I haven't been carving a lot in the last week because I've been a bit under the weather, but today I got back into things. Here is the progress on #2. I'm going to let him dry out a bit more in the sun because the wood inside is real wet and mushy. It shouldn't take too long, I think.

Thanks for watching!

Holy s#!t!!! Big Fink #1 is super! You certainly have been busy!

From castings to carvings, everything is looking great! This is what I miss, for not hangin' around the forums in awhile.

Now, to get some scratch together to purchase a finkdaddy original!!!

Looking forward to the progress on Fink #2! Sure looks like he is having a helluva time!

As always fink, keep up the tremendous work!

Cheers!

Dang Finky! #2 is looking sweet! I guess you weren't too concerned about going deep; there isn't much wood left! How mushy is it? Like soft woody soft or like oatmeal? I hope it dries up without cracking and lets you finish out the way you planned. Great stuff. I would like to see some more angles (pics). Any plans for the back?

looking good Finky. I might stop by tomorrow to check it out in person just to make sure you aren't using Photo Shop to jazz up your pictures! I have a feeling though that it's the Reel Deel!

Thanks Blacksandz! It's good to hear from you again. Will I see you at the Hukilau again?

JohnnyP, thanks again. I actually didn't use the chainsaw on this one. It's all chisels and just a little bit of grinder for smoothing some of the rough spots.

Hey Gman! It's not like oatmeal, but rather like moist cork. In spots the chisels wont cut, they only tear out the soft stuff. I am going to do a full head dress on him, but I haven't thought that far ahead.

Thanks Kirby, this big stuff is very fun. I can only hope to get my style as clean and impressive as yours.

Lake Surfer! I would love to try some pine. Have you carved any palm besides the one at the demo last year? It's weird stuff. It's almost like any direction you go is against the grain. Thanks!

Benzart, your welcome over any time. I don't even have Photoshop installed in my computer any more since I redid the drive. I can't get the disk to install again. Oh well.

Hewey, thanks mate! I see #1 finally has a couple of friends. I hope he isn't drinking up all your booze!

Here's a couple pics of #2. It's been slow going because my life's been crazy, but after a few short sessions I've been able to move him along.



I'm going to start drawing out the head dress now. Thanks for looking!

This guy is coming along sweetly Mr Fink-man.

I scored these bamboo coasters for 50c each at a thrift store. 5 minutes and some tape and Alien's moai and Finky #1 are hanging in style now
