Hey everyone! Boy, it's been a busy weekend here. Lot's of kids activities, a wedding, and lots of carving.
Thanks a ton for the great comments.
Here's where she's at. There's still the chord to make, but she's otherwise complete. She measures in at just under 4.5".







Sorry if they're a bit blurry. I have terrible lighting in my house.

Grog, you asked me about sketches. I don't have the sketches from the first two, but here are some ones I'm thinking of using. They were made by my daughter, jogibear here on TC.


I know there a bit hard to see, but they're there. Is there an idea that you'd like to see?

She's Beautiful - great job.

The other night at the Mai Kai I got to see the first one up close and have to say that she was even better in person. One question - what are you using to hold the skirt together? You were well represented at the Mai Kai the other night - every time I turned around someone had one of you pendants on. Made me a little envious, the Rum Barrels helped me get over it. Can't wait to see the next one.

Excellent stuff. The grooves of the lines are just perfection.
Your daughter had the grooves under her pen.
Can't wait to see the next one.

For a guy named Fink, you certainly have a way with the ladies.

Another excellent piece of woodworking! I noticed she's a lefty.

Thanks again everybody! I'm starting a new piece tonight. I don't have anything in mind, so it will be intesting to see where out girl ends up.

AlohaStation, a few people have asked me that. The skirt is actually a lot more solid than you would think. Each piece is fastened in at least two places with carpenters glue. By the time two or three of those layers get glued together it becomes pretty firm. A lot of the strength also comes from the layers of poly that I put on at the end. Of course you want to be carefull with it because a drop would cause some damage, but it will be just fine.

Mahalo!

It's been a busy few days, but I finally got some time in tonight. She's going to be holding either a torch or a spear, I haven't decided yet.


Thanks!

Thanks Ben, are you telling me I need to get a grip?

Here she is. I still want to put another coat of clear on. She's about 3.5" tall.





Thanks for looking!
