Thanks again guys!
I've been putting some final touches on my girl in between Packer plays. The chord you see was only to hang her while she dried. She'll have a nicer one tomorrow.
The toggle will be made from bone skulls to match her accessories.
This has been a blast to carve and I can't wait to start the next.



She's almost complete!

That is sweet! The skulls put an excellent touch to her, not that she wasn't already a hip shakin' gal! Fine job bro, Go Packers!

Yo Finky! I don't know how I missed this little girl? It looks like it was a bugger to do? What put you onto this idea? I bet this took a lot of patience? Very clean job.

Hey everyone, I finally finished the chord on this gal tonight. Thanks for all the kind words along the way.

Gman! No one really put me up to it. I got the idea on a night when my wahine and I were out celebrating her birthday with some of her family at an amazingly horrible club in Milwaukee called Victors (anybody from the area would know what I'm talking about). A couple of hours earlier I had a conversation with Lake Surfer about the carving business, so I was sitting at the table in the club, turning over a lot of ideas in my head while the DJ was playing terrible dance music at dangerously high volume. Then in one magic moment, after approximately my 7th beer, I saw my wife's purse that she had left on the table. It was like all the loud music, all the choking smoke, all the 40 somethings trying to look like 20 somethings, and all the ridiculous dancing just disappeared. My world instantly became nothing except for the cartoonish drawing of a hula girl on the front of my wife's purse. I spent the whole rest of the evening trying to piece together in my head what a 2 dimensional cartoon drawing would look like in 3 dimensional wood. I started carving it the very next morning.

Here she is:






I have to replace my bandsaw blade this weekend, and then it's on to the next!
Thanks everyone!

Dear Finkdaddy,
Amazing Hula dancer and the toggle just fits in. Congratulations, you must be happy to get movement and grace out of a rigid medium as wood.
Thanks for the images.
Hugs,
Sebas
