The last one is crazy. Very anxious to see you finish this one, my favorite so far and
I know you will push it over the top. I'm getting strong vibes from this one, but it could be
the tequil;sa.

The tall PNG guy is Killer! Let us know what A&M says. As you know I find often myself with the same predicament.

Thanks for the tip on the diesel fuel Benz. I soaked him down with about 3/4 of a gallon and will leave him wrapped him in plastic for a couple of weeks. I was concerned that my neighbors may object to the smell but it's not bad at all.

Conga- I'm not sure how much detail this guy will take. I was afraid that half his face might fall off but I think I can pull it off. At the very least I'll use a sanding drum on my dremel to shape up his hands and a few other areas.

Big T. The guy I sent photos to at A&M has not replied to my email. I'll try again to another guy and this time won't attach the photos. I usually delete emails from strangers with attachments. Perhaps that is what happened. The exterminator called these "old house borers" but I want to learn more...particularly their life cycle.

Jerome - What I really need to learn is better planning and to be patient. I think we are both tapped into the same source of inspiration. One of my next projects is similar to one I just saw on your thread. I've got to finish up a slit drum I'm working on before I start it.

Here is the finished Marquesan. Made of elm, he is 26 inches tall.

Too beautiful Amate!!!!
It is true that our respective projects follow ... Apart from the PNG, I am just finishing a Marquesan. Yours is really fabulous, proportion and detail, grain and finish. A museum quality!

Waiting the slit drum... Take your time, I can be patient.

Dwagon - thanks man...I'm looking forward to an update on the one you're working on.

Laojia - Museum quality??? Most of the time I try to mimic what I see in museums and duplicate the emotional effect they have on me. So, your compliment is as high a praise as I could get. I like him even more now that the stain has had a couple of weeks to mellow.

and thanks for your support Clarita. Sometimes I believe I only carve to have a subject for the photos.

Conga, Yeah man, I carved it. Just a couple of minor things I will improve upon if I ever do another one. Lot's of other stuff I want to do first.

Drastic wagon- thanks for compliment. I appreciate it.

Glad you stopped by VampiressRN and thanks.

Always good to hear from you Big T. Now I have a question for you...
