Thanks FTLOT, your motivation is appreciated! Got "Bennie", the commissioned Oregon State Beaver mascot in a first coat of paint, and also the red oak "Joaquin" with a clear coat this weekend.



Also roughed out my next four projects. The two on the left are jelutong, then purple heart and red oak.

Nice update Cy, love the Beaver! I love looking at all of the poly-inspired stuff that people do, but good to see quality carvings of any style. Keep up the good work. Now go carve some tikis!

Thanks hil, I too am looking forward to the new stuff. Conga the beav is one of the last commissioned carves I am going to do as I like working my own ideas rather than someone else's. More tiki-type work on the way. Gee Jonny, that's swell. I tried to complete this smaller plank of red oak in a week, but that was just silly thinking, hope to have it ready for paint next weekend.

I will add backlighting and some kind of fabric background.

I've been using more fabric & string & stuff too.
I think it adds more dimension.
Looks good.

Agreed Will, I like the way the primitive carvings look with the added accessories that they had available at the time. A little progress to keep this thread unwinding.
Jelutong is such a bitchin' wood...lightweight, yellow and aromatic, it is my favorite.

"Joaquin" had his final coat of clear applied and I added sand to the base.

Hi CY, I'm just checking in to see all your cool ultra modern designs. You do quality work with interesting woods.
Dan and I plan to come back to see you at Tiki Kon this summer. Many hugs until then, Wendy

Thanks for checking in danlovestikis and FTLOT! I think you will like the new venue at next years Tiki Kon Wendy, and look forward to seeing you then. A bit of progress on "Mr. Devlin's Luau".

Holy moly, cy! I admit to being a stranger to TC for a while now, but great to get caught up on your new creations. Mr. Devlin's Luau is outstanding, love the use of positive and negative space on Joaquin.

Stop blowing my mind up please!

Wishing you the best! Trying to come by more. I've been out of the loop these days with work and fam stuff. Thanks for continuing to inspire us all.

Thanks for the words of encouragement Ano, they make it worth while to carry on carving! I painted "Lily" with red and deep walnut dyes mixed with marine varnish, and also made some progress on "Mr. Devlin's Luau."
