Out of all the tools i have My favorite tool of choice is still the six pack of beer. It may slow work down but ya just dont care by number six. Its a win win for me and the palm.

Although common sense is a good tool too so power tools should never be used with a six pack.... EVER! just a comfortable chair

Thanks Nomolos

here are some progress shots on the old trouble log (sable with dry rot). did most with the chain saw and finished with the angle grinder......still have some more to do but i let the log tell me what to do this time.........there was alot of deep damage on the back and in the area of the right eye position...... banged this puppy out in about 8 hours total...faster than a year........going to finish the face cuts and hopefully stain it this weekend.

AND..i have to dedicate this one to benella.......this piece was inspired by something he created a while back and he was kind enough to let me cut the piece similar to a body style he did......(for the record i asked his permission first) Thanks Benjamin!!! i still think his looked better though.....

The body came out really nice and the face is progressing nicely too! Its so hot in FL now that carving is a real struggle. I've been carving in my garage at night with the door closed. Its hot but at least the mosquitos don't eat me alive!

The benella's style is the beer the tiki's holding, because beer drives me crazy

You successed in putting your skills and style in this log dude, the cuts are neat.
