Some one gave me the idea to carve table lamps.
The small Mai-Kai kind.
I thought, how many could I possably carve like that?
So I carved this one.



Then I made a fiberglass mold of it.





Then I made these.




We think the shade is
a shade too small.

So here's the latest.
A nice, wet, fresh, 8 ft Cypress log.
A treat to carve.

That's so neat looking, but it make GROG worried that it'll crack at the heels the way it's laying.

I do have a SET OF flex chisels , i have had them for over a year , they are dull now and i usualy just use all power tools replacing the chisel with sabur tooth bits, but i see that the quality comes from chisels much cleaner , I like chisels when i carved ice but i have gotten away from them when i started carving palm and wood. I am going to look at that and use a little more chisel work , thanks for posting it is a inspiring will carve
