Looking forward to watching this one progress. It's kind of hard to make out in the photo but what are you using for a workbench?

Nice! Great start and looking forward to watching this progress. I'm guessing ships head!!

How's carving the mahogany? Your lines look really clean, are you using chisels only?

My carving stand is a little improvised but i like it. It is a 4 position folding ladder with palm segments for cushion. I'm tall and like my logs positioned higher. The mahony is tough to carve in raw logs, the grain swirls and changes direction alot. I'm used to it now and try to keep that in mind when planning my cuts. Yes, all chisels w/grinder to sand (the wood laughs at the grinder). Heres the latest...

Here's the latest. She is progressing nicely. I keep telling myself "doing good, don't f*ck her up" - so things are progressing slowly.

Very nice.

I found the key - I make sure I f*** mine up early and get it out of the way, then I don't have to worry about it for the rest of the carve.

This is my latest submission to the Cannibal art swap. Carved walnut, Cannibal Fork Pendant. This one threw me a curve by having a hidden bad spot inside the piece of wood (you can see it on the chest. When I exposed that, I didn't want to carve any deeper. The fork is sharp enough to be used as a fork.

Been a while since I been on yout thread Tom, I missed some stuff! The upside down Hawaiian guys are great and the mermaid is gonna be awesome. The cannibal fork is fab, gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "let me pick your brain"
