Hewey, it is stained, it just doesn't look it in the photo.

Update on this guy. I figured out a face, and started it today.


Plus, I did this quickie. I only let myself use the chainsaw and angle grinder, no chisels! Then I Mapp-blackened it and sanded to highlight.

It's about 3 feet tall. I like this look alot, nice and rough/primitive.

I likes him too I agree on the primitive style. You pulled a lot of character out of him with very few lines. That ain't easy...well at least for me.

Thanks, squid and kustom!

Today's progress shot.

I finished carving the head, then Mapp-burned and sanded the whole thing.
I'm going to try just one coat of spar varnish on this one, for less gloss.

Wow, I haven't updated in weeks!

I did these three last weekend, and the weekend before. They're 3' and under.

I did these two today. I may stain and/or varnish them, but they are essentially done.
The bigger one is 3'.

Bill, your driveway looks like one of those places where you pull up in your truck and a hire a tiki for the day:

Those guys on the curb look like they want to jump in the first car that drives by and go to a luau or something. Time for another saturday 9-3 driveway sale? Inventory got back up after this run. When I didn't see you post for a while I figured that your landlady was making you clean up that pile of sawdust.

See you soon,
Buzzy Out!

Finally got a little carving in. I started these two this past Sunday, and finished them the same day. I was going for a real aged and primitive look, especially on the taller one. It was a crappy, throwaway piece of wood, the top of the tree, but I wanted to see if I could do anything with it.

I love the look of the second one...it really looks like a head-dress and totally intentional.

Great work!

Good to see you taking on the wood pile 4 Wheeler....I agree, there's something about that rough look of the tree topper one that really draws me in...I would keep that one for a while before letting it go...just something about it that's worth pondering??
