Hi
Tikifreak--- It took way too long to hollow it out, and then when I thought I was done, it took another several hours of chisel work.

TeaKey- Yeah, the canoe carve event didn't happen this year. I've been doing a lot of research on it and I do want to do it next year. This piece was just a test carve and practice for the big one.

Lake, Thanks this was a fun project, you should do one and try to surf it like the Hawaiians do, only in Lake Michigan. The log in background is going to be for a non tiki project, I am going to carve an Egyptian sarcophagus, attempting to simulate King Tut's famous one.

Gman- Crazy yes! I hope you like. I posted a picture of me "in" the canoe in my very own miniature Pacific- Brrr water was 46 degrees.

Conga- I hope we can't drive a snowmobile across Lake Michigan, that means it will have been frozen over.

Alohastation- I had my PFD after-wards and said cheers to you for it.

Heath- It is Elm we had a few of these trees die this year and this came from our property. Elm is about as hard as ash and almost as heavy.

Gap- I am going to hang it on the wall in my sun porch, the dimensions I made it just fit.

Thanks everybody else appreciate the support and comments. And get well Benzart.

No progress shot, here it is finished, I think I am going to let this stay natural, or maybe stain it a grayish color.
























Brrr, too small to support my weight as I guessed, but was hoping for.


Thanks

Very nice!

Damn, I know that water is cold! Nights have been 38 - 50 degrees. You're nuts!

Went surfing last week in the big lake and it's water temp is 48. We're in 6/4 wetsuits already.

You've given me the prodding I needed to do a 1/4 or half sized 'rigger for the yard now... winter project!

Dude!! That is way cool! Maybe hit it with some finishing oil to keep it nice and moist and waterproof? I can't wait to see how you display it in your house! The prow has a very sinister look to it. Sweet carve Johnny!

Wonderful idea and execution Johnny, it will look great with your other "stuff."
Looks a little chilly in the pool.

Great work, canoes are a lot harder to carve than they look.

Awesome JP!

Love the crock face.... but can you make one big enough to float Hodaddy's fat ass as I paddle round my lagoon?

Lake, Looking foreword to seeing you carve yours, just make it a lot bigger than this one.

BK, I'd love to display a real one carved in PG, but even the prow fragments cost a small fortune, I'll just have to make due with my hackings. One of these days I'll have to see your dealer. Thanks for the comp though.

Thanks everybody else. The real canoe carve project is still in the works though. This was just a quick practice to see what kind of time it would take. Stay tuned. Yes the water was chilly, warmer this weekend, but still time to close the pool until next year .

Hodadhank- You find a log, and supply a place to stay for me and the misses, and I'll make you one. We'll have to paddle up to Bali Hai.

Gman- I hope to hang it sometime before Xmas. And yes, I did a bit of carving this weekend. Just a little trinket for my wife.
