Thanks pjc and Big T- I sure like working with a good, lightweight wood that holds detail and takes color easily. I will be doing more of this 4'x10" wide size as it feels great to complete a piece in only 2-3 weeks.

Thank you Atomic Mess, here is the finished crab head. I used a green wood dye in a spar varnish but it wasn't quite bright enough off the cedar so I painted acrylic over and then clear coated.



Surfin' Bird has made some progress also.

The Crab Head is very nice. The grain pops!

The color adds a new dimension. The green seems to compliment the natural color of the log.

Really appreciate the feed back dudes. Over the years I have found that the greens, reds, oranges, and yellows work well to compliment the cedar while blues and purples don't look so hot. I will steel wool to smooth him out and then pile it in the van for the long trip to Tiki Caliente in 3 short weeks. Can't wait!

Here is the group that will be coming with me to TC4

I respect your talent and opinion a lot Benzart so your encouragement makes me happy!
"Surfin' Bird"

Although I like McTiki's Chicken Joe name better than Surfin' Bird I had to stay with the Trashmen's song title that gave me the idea.
This was the last piece I wanted to complete before TC4. Props to AlohaStation for writing about the Warren knives. They are cheap, super sharp (I swear one cut me and I didn't even touch it) flexible and long lasting. It was perfect for finishing this up.
