I may be as dense as some of the wood I carve H10, but I did get that one. If the pyramids had nice asses carved into them than I would agree with you Keylo. Thank you Wendy, you and Dan are welcome back any time. Here is a new one started, a portion of a plank of khaya. Also "Dewey" is done and ready for paint.

Hang10 if I am one thing it is consistent, and manage to include a few hours every day for carving. I get too bored working on the same thing, so have many going at the same time.

These are commissioned walking sticks carved from wood brought back from Hawaii.

I was not happy with "Jack" so stripped him of his paint, did a better job of finishing, and re-did the bottom light box as the first attempt was too flimsy.

I carved it from a solid block this time, and will be able to detail the pillars with something.

Here is the old version.

I added a bottom light to this mahogany piece.

Slowly working "Webster", a plank of purple heart.

I finally found a tool that works well on this hard as Hades wood.

If you haven't done so yet, you should try one of those carbide tipped wheels on that mini-grinder. I never went back to the standard blade after I tried one.

Thanks amate, I will most certainly try those as I find these wear quickly and start burning the wood.

Wow cy, just wow. All these pieces you have going are just incredible. The walking sticks are gonna be really cool. I also have one i started that's hanging on the wall of my garage waiting for me to finish. You're a brave man to tackle refinishing a piece. Been there. It sucks.

That grinder, is that the abortech one? Or can you attach that head to any angle grinder?

The carbide bits work well on Purpleheart - but it is still hard as petrified dog sh*t to carve.

Thanks Big T, that is an Arbortech, one of my favorite tools. That blade will not work on anything else. I use it mostly for sanding, as it has small disks that fit on also, but that little chain saw blade is bonus and I was able to do all the carving on the sticks with it. Aloha if purple heart was the only wood available on my island I would NEVER carve and would grab a stick out of the fire and doodle on a rock for my art fix instead.

Thanks Tuga! I have made some progress on "Jack", mostly on the bottom base section.




Next is paint.
