I thought the same thing when I was carving it. Ball sack on his face. Good conversation piece.

Knocked out a small guy that I started a couple of years ago. Nothing too special about it. Just felt like finishing it. Still need to stain it later today. This will be a gift for a buddy of mine.

That's a serious chop on that '33/'34 Ford in the garage!
How about posting a picture of that, too?

The reason I have been gone so long is I have been working on my Ford 34 5 window coupe. Hotrods are my first love and I spend most of my time working on them. Here ya go. Chopped 5 1/2 inches. I love Bonneville/early 60's drag style coupes. I will be out at the salt flats next week in my 29 rpu. Enjoy

That's how I roll baby! Why screw around with soft generic streetrods when you can build a bonafide hardcore hotrod with some balls and an attitude. I want it to look pissed off.

Back at it. Pictures are poor in the shade. will get better pictures when I finish this one up for a customer. Feels good to carve again.

Got it sanded and burned a little. I use copper sulfate on the wood to preserve it since it rots so fast when left alone. It gives it a little bit of a green tint that fades after a while. I will use a satin poly finish to protect it since my customer wants to set it guarding his cerimonial hottub of sin.

Knocked out a simple one today for a customer. He is going to use it to make a mold amd make a glass sculture. I wonder how that is going to work out? I will post it up when he does it. He did not want to much detail or undercuts. Pretty simple and basic for sure. But at least I 'm kinda back in the groove of things. I got a really big one planned next with the log you see me skinning on the car trailer. Damn it's heavy!!

Holy shit that's a fat log. It must take all day to skin it by hand. I'm digging your tikis. I can't wait to see what you do with that fat log on the tailgate. Post pics. Aloha
