It will be cool if I can get back on track.
I lost a month carving due to a self injury of sorts.
Rosewood it kinda toxic.
I carried a bunch of Rosewood things stacked between
my stomach & my arm with no shirt on for less than a minute.
By the time I set it down I was itching.
By sun down I was covered in hives &
itching like a man on a fuzzy tree.
Took 3 weeks to get it under control &
a week to get over what I'd taken to get rid of it.
It wasn't the carving of it that caused the rash.
So I'm back at it. I'm too far to quit.
I'll have some pics soon.


Wow, sorry to hear that! I wonder if that would fall into this thread:

WOW Will! Did a little research and that is fairly common for East Indian Rosewood, Brazilian Tulipwood, Cocobolo, and Bolivian Rosewood. As a Respiratory Therapist I can tell you that your body is now sensitized and your next encounter could be worse. Might want to postpone that piece til cooler weather so you can cover up better and wear a dust mask.
Hope you're feeling better soon!

EDIT - I just saw this quote "One of my friends claims that there are only two types of people in this world.... those who are allergic to rosewoods and those who will be!"

Geez Willy, you Florida carvers are too much. First I was going to start a thread seeking donations to keep that crazy Tampa Bay guerrilla renegade out of the hoosegow and now I will be starting one to keep you in calamine lotion.

when I was down there last time, Will said to me (in regards to the rosewood) "yeah, I was surprised Tom just gave you that big log and didn't want to mess with it"...

I guess there are no more surprises now... lol...

rub some calamine lotion on that shit & get back to work!

I was asked to make an immunity idol
for a group playing survivor.
It's a Royal palm frond.
It's a monster.
I'm gonna keep it simple.

Hi Will Carve, you posted a note on my thread so I came here to view your work. I looked at all 55 pages because after starting on page one I couldn't stop.

This was one of my favorites and then on page 53 I found your newer version. WOW!






I also loved the War Club on page 45.

This year we had the pleasure of visiting our friends Benzart and zerostreet in Florida. It would have been fun to meet you too.
I did see you on page 41. I must be a ham because Dan and I are all over our pages on "other crafts".

Keep up the wonderful work, Wendy aka danlovestikis
