If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is. That's just plain awesome.

Did anyone catch that last part - THEY ARE ALL BOBBLEHEADS!! Having watched as this has progressed, you just can't imagine the amount of work that went into this. It is carved from one log, with many of the pieces carved against the grain. It is completely overwhelming when you see it live. Well done, sir!! Sssoooo - whats next?

Well, isn't that something! It's been a looooong time since we've seen anything with this level of dedication and....probably craziness
Fabulous carving...where you gonna put it?

Like some of the other comments...maybe time for me to take up knitting.

A Hall of Fame effort. I suspect this is a carving that folks will be talking about and remember for a long, long time. At least anyone that has ever picked up a mallet and chisel. Bobbleheads! LOVE IT!!!!

Yeah this is just epic!
Great! Great! job.

Love the way the heads are from the same cut of wood.
Then the bodies are from another cut but still they too are cut from their own log
one after the other.

I'm guessing that's how you got that same variations in the wood.
Very thoughtful.

Cool video--thanks for posting.
Nice sound to it---sorta like a very large percussion instrument.

I can't thank every one enough that can see
how much work went into that canoe and took
a moment to comment on it. Stuff like that makes
the world go a round.
So I'm doing a few fronds for friends. They go quick &
I can try new things with out worrying about
screwing up an 8 ft. log.
