I like that . . . and it certainly applies in my case.

Hi everyone, lots of very nice carving lately, just not by me. I think it
might be a good idea to have at least one carving that you putz with... but
never finish. This is mine.


I think I'll continue to fart around with it for a little while yet,
doing some experimenting on stain and colors, mainly just wanted to say hello.
Back to the party up here...the birdman is getting dizzy!

Good pics too.

Thanks Will, congratulations on being "cool and current."

Experimenting here with the coloring and finish of this figure, it's
starting to look like something that was beaten up and re-finished many times
over the years. This guy is the result so far of three splashes in an oak stain,
a crazy blue stain that came in a tube, that's a story in itself. Limed oak stain,
and finally a little more of the darker oak, sanded quite a bit in between all
of it.
Pretty boring...






Feels like outdoor carving is wrapped up for several months,
getting pretty cold up here. Lots of time to keep messing
with the "Blue Tiki"



Edited because I couldn't get the pictures right.

The finish suits that piece, it brings out some depth that was not showing before.

When something's not working for me, the temptation is to keep going to get it right but sometimes you just have to leave it and maybe come back to it later...

Why not do something completely different and come back to this idea on a new piece? I like the bird coming out of the mouth thing.

Thanks for sharing your process!

Quite impressed with a lot of the work here lately. I thought I would soil things up a
bit with a little update from the northwoods.
Still trying to figure out the finish on the latest "big" carving, so I'm attempting
to do something smaller. I really don't know what's happening with this guy...



And a dog


Thanks for stopping by.....very cold and snowing up here. Winter Wonderland.

Thanks Will...he's going to be holding a toy that most of us grew up with. Concentrate and ask again.

Let’s see…a toy most of us grew up with. My guess is a pocketknife. All of my early work was created with one. The folks in the small town I grew up in often referred to my carvings as “sharpened sticks”. Too unsophisticated to appreciate fine art I suppose.

Good guess Amate, but not quite what I was thinking.

Outlook not so good, my sources say no.

It is decidedly so, The Magic 8 Ball. I cannot predict now
but I'm hoping to make it work.

As for why I decided on a Magic 8 Ball....the reply is hazy.

Looks like the wood carver side
Is winning out over the Tiki carver side.
May the force be with you.
&, Keep us posted.
Outstanding finish.
