Thanks guys....

Well, due to needed maintenance and weather, I didn't get any cutting in this weekend, but, I did get one stained up. Maybe next weekend...

thanks again for stopping by

White details are all that is left for this one and possibly a Paua shell inlay.

Aloha!

Ok, I got a few shots in on what I hope to be somewhat of a tutorial on a smaller Basswood panel.

11 X 9 X 2.5 in

Sketched:



Now, using a course Typhoon 1 in sphere, taking out all but, the detail areas



Using a 1/2 in course Typhoon, we get yet closer to the details



Then I switch to the 1/8 drive motor using an even smaller sphere to dig out more details.



Then various small 1/8 in typhoons to pick off the details starting with what is intended to be the "Near" and then the "far". Everything is cut with depth in mind.




Then of course, sanding....




I generally spray the piece down in order to get all of the dust out of it and to let me know where to sand once dry again.

I have about 45 mins left on this panel

Hope this helps

Mahalo

You sure couldn't make it look any EZer.
I sure know better.
That palm tree is my favorite part of that last one.
Those Tiki guys you draw really work well for you.
I love it when a plan comes together.
What ever you do, don't stop.

Thank you guys!

I tried to take a pic with the burr currently in use every 30 to 45 minutes. Its not easy to do a tutorial without a Go Pro or something and then narrate it......

It takes as much patience to carve a huge piece as it does for a panel. The difference is your. F^Up factor on a smaller piece. These burrs can dance at 22000 rpm! Whatever they touch...is affected. I have the "oh shit!" Pile to prove it.

Oh...Will....the orange palm tree you mentioned was supposed to resemble a torch. You can't tell from the angles shown, but it is originating from the boat floor. Thank you all the same.

Mahalo my friends
