hodadhank, benz, howland, seeksurf: Thanks for all the comps!

Benz: That pecan wasn't hard to carve. I think it was already staring to dry rot, so was softened up. Now this new one, is definitely hard.

Here's the latest I'm working on. It's sweetgum. Super hard wood.

BigT, Your tiki's are looking great! Put a little more depth in those cuts and you'll be way a head of the game. If that is only #5 you have some natural talent. Happy carving.

Seek: Thanks for checking in. I've been trying!

The progress seems to be going slow. Took some pics during the last few weeks but didn't look like much changed so didn't bother uploading.

Here's the latest from last weekend.









Also spent the week before Thanksgiving in Puerto Rico. Almost didn't come back!

Seek: Thanks! Slow is ok I guess, but the progress seems to be crawling.... Wish I was faster at this like you guys!

Benz: Thanks for the encouragement. Yep, trying to cut deeper and deeper as I go. Man, it's tough! I still plan to cut deeper because I release the nose and lips need to stick out more. I guess I'm still learning just how far down to cut during the roughing out stage.

Welp I guess it's time for my monthly update....

Here's the latest progress shots (well close, it's a little further along). I had hoped to finish in 2008. Now I hope to be finished in 2009!

Looking good! I like the different styles in him.
The ears are cool and that wood look old and rustic.

Nice update.
I can see you feel comfortable with your tools, because the lines seem neat and grooving well.

Can't wait for the next update.

Benjamin.

bd: thanks. I almost wonder whether I should have skipped this log. I'm kind of afraid it's going to split right in half. We'll see.

benella: Thanks for the kind words! I may be comfortable with my tools but my back is killing me. Haha!

seeks: You know it's funny you should pick up on the ears. I totally didn't intend them to be ears at first. That's why they're so far in back. Only after I had cut way into the log did I realize - duh, these should be ears! Thanks for the compliment!
