ST, Benjamin, JohnnyP and BenzArt - wow! Thanks for your comments, and thanks for lookin.

JohnnyP - you inspired the pig you know, GMAN's pig pictures too, but your work in the genre of slit gongs is really fantastic - thanks.

Ben - the eyes are pretty funny - I'll PM the story to you someday.

Thanks again all -

Oink on!

Here's the happy recipient of the pig, and the first pictures (only pictures) of the pig in the sun. It's finally out of my house and hair!

The recipient:


He liked it!


Basking in the sun:



Hangin up at the party - it took a beating that night.


Thanks again GMAN and JohnnyP and of course Ben.

Now. On to the next ... stone maybe.

Hi Gapper...I was wondering what happened to you....in fact....I was going to inquire on TC
as to your whereabouts.
Nice pig.....makes me hungry for the pork rib roast sitting in my freezer.
Are we gonna see more bats or something?

T-Gap, I'm glad the Piggy found a good home. He was a Fun project, for us anyway, and you did a great job with a unique piece of wood.

Hey thanks Ben... and everyone else. I hafta admit, even with all the trouble I had, it was still fun for me too. Now no more excuses for me. I've got to get back to the carving bench and try some more.

Wow. That was weird.

Here I am sittin around watching a show on DIY about wood sculpting, and this guy is carving 'wood spirits' and doin a very nice job of it. Anyway, he's showing us how to carve eyes, (which I have a history of having problems with ).

Then I think of Ben, who has shown me a couple of times, of how to carve eyes. Wow.

Well damn if I don't get an email, at that very second, from TC saying someone posted to my thread! So I logon and look, and it was Ben! That's amazing. Thanks man.

I've been lurking around TC for a while, but I haven't done any carving. A whole bunch of stuff has happened in the last 3 months (got wacked at work; then found much better job closer to home etc...), and a whole bunch of other stuff - good and bad. But all is well now.

Anyway, it's even weirder that today I started carving a simple moai for my tiki bathroom. And I started carving it out of a palm log that Ben gave me in Florida last summer! Dang!

Thanks buddy! The vibes are good!

Aw geez JP... thanks for your interest. The sad truth is that I'm still slackin. The bathroom thing is on perma-hold, until I come to grips with making a 'face' tiki. I hear those are bad these days...

Here's it's status, anyway:


Relegated to the shop floor for a while...

I did make another bat recently and gave it away,


but that's about it.

So what about you! Damn that crock drum is awesome! That was so cool. GMan should play it and post the sound of it up here for us to listen to. (I should post this over on your thread!)

I've been layin low around here because the bar is really really high, and I just can't dedicate enough time to carving to get better! I mean you guys rock. You, Conga, GMan, Ben, tama, paipo, buzzy, lake, all you guys...

The list goes on and on and it'll be a while before it includes me... but I aint dead yet.

Merry Christams and Happy New Year and all the other holidays too, for that matter!

Greg
