That's some fast and accurate effort for the mask and the board!


Awesome stuff.

Thanks Andy.

After I set that mask aside, I decided that the fish I made to complete the spearfisher kinda sucked....so I picked up this piece:




and turned it into this:

so, I woke up this morning and decided I wanted to make a shark.





Still working on it, but you can definitely look at it & tell it's a shark, so I'm stoked.

nah, I know. It's all good.

It's about 3 1/2 ft.

And yeah, the cedar definitely smells nice. It really is nice to work with and have around. On one hand I want to make some money off of it, but on the other hand, the finished product is so beautiful I just want to make stuff for family & friends.

the shark is done!

Sanded it to 400 & rubbed some poly on it. I'm very stoked.

That looks great.
Is it heavy ?
Sanding between polly coats will make it super smooth to the touch.

Thanks Will.

And I'll try the sand & re-poly .

It's about 3 1/2 ft, and that cedar was cut 7 months ago and drying since, so it's not really that heavy.

A little something I drew out last night & finished this afternoon.

It's flat (like, 2 inches) and I want to mount it on some kind of flat contrasting background surface, and build a rough bamboo frame around the perimeter. Want to do some other similar ones with some different tiki stuff. I don't have a lot of art on the walls, so I might as well make some.

What I did today:

the start of the bamboo bike....





Basically I cut up a $5 garage sale bike & got some construction grade bamboo (enough for 2 frames) for $20.

I need to go back & get some thinner sections for the seat & chain stays, get new tubes & some better tires,and some JB Weld to glue it all together. And that seat is horrible...it's gotta go too.
