CY - don't tell him that! He strives to carve beyond the shape of the wood. I'm glad to see some of my influence is rubbing off. This one went quick - it only took a month!

Thank you,
I like some parts better than other, but,
I say that all the time.

Check out this hairball.
Not all palm is the same.
I cut the bottom off to stand it up
& let it drain.
The inside is about what you'd find
in a Key lime pie.
Not much hope we will ever see a silly face in that thing.

Only a month???that would be a yearlong carve for me.
Im not sure which is worse for me---my aversion to sand paper or sharpening chisels. Im coming to the conclusion that I might be in the wrong business.
Great carve Will !

Hairballs are the best. Love all hairball carvings, looking froward to seeing the end result. Hope you succeed.

That "Pine log you just carved is a Norfolk Island Pine and is a really excellent carving wood as seen by the excellent work you did with it. I think the palm above is a mushy Bottle palm? not easily carved, maybe if you freeze it you can get an ice carving from it?

Big T,
You've been encouraging me since 2009.
Thought I'd take this moment to say thanks.
That darker wood is the black glaze stuff.
I'm not a fan of doing that to hard wood.
I did the crown & didn't like it but I was
stuck & had to finish it to the bottom.

Some one gave me a 7 in pine log about 30 in long.
I split it in to 3 long ways.
This was just practice.
Kinda like doodling.

Next up some thing different.
My first Namahage.

1400 views & not one,
"what the hell's a Namahage".
Am I the only one who didn't know?

They come in red & blue.
This one is a blue 2 {bottom] tooth.

This head is going on that body.

Ok, I'll fess up that I was not aware of namahages. I had to look it up so I wouldn't ask and
appear clueless.
Nice start....

Painting could be as or more important
than the carve here.
Thought I was making progress only to see
this is all wrong.
You know what they say,
"carve deeper"
