I made another mask today, and I'm really stoked on this one. I think it's one of the best ones so far.

I really love cedar, and all the stuff going on with it....the colors, the wormhole patterns on the surface just under the bark, the smell....it's just stunning wood. Sand it up and rub some poly on it and wow, it just explodes....

started a new one today (the one I had Kristina drawing out for me).

A Hawaiian Ku for a nice guy named DJ and his family. This one's gonna be an outside pool area piece and will be seriously exposed to the weather, so I'm doing this one in cypress...

How is that Jawhorse working out? I saw one the other day and wondered if it was worth the money.

yeah, I actually like the jawhorse.

It wasn't cheap, but it's thick & well made, and seems like it'll last forever. I like the little foot pedal adjuster thingy...

yeah, it's red cedar. The outer inch is white, and the inside is a purple-ish read.

It's pretty stuff for sure...

here is a piece right after I peeled the bark off & sprayed it off with the hose.

I love the little worm patterns under the bark. Almost like nature's little tattoos....

Rough cut headdress on the cypress ku.

I kinda like this cypress. Much more used friendly than I expected actually.



AND...the suspense was killing me so I put a v-cut chisel to a chunk of one of the sunken logs, because I've been worried that if they're too hardened they might not carve well, but a flexcut V went through it like butter...not too easy that it seemed rotted, but definitely good and carve-able. And wow, the colors are pretty interesting to say the least...

Very skillfully done! Extra bonus for incorporating the worm damage!
