Yeah! This beast looks GREAT so far. I don't see any blemishes! I LIKE the look of the chisel marks, and then some parts, like the nose nice and smooth and prominent. Cool.

Thanks, seeks. If my carve comes out half as good as yours do, I'll still be happy.

Thanks, Lake--Southern hospitality? Just comes natural! Good to have you and Jenni over to the Jungalero Lounge. Enjoyed talkin' shop, etc. Glad you guys enjoyed your trip--that's alotta driving! Looking forward to your future creations.

Hey Ben, yeah the fan was supposed to take away some of the dust but it just blew back in the garage door--need a bigger fan!--or 2

Mucho thanxo, Conga!

Thanx, Benz. I did have to go drop 50 on a bigger chisel but it has been worth it so far. Well under control, you say? Control comes and goes-sometimes the log has control over me--it's a constant battle for control. BTW, it was a pleasure to meet you in person @ Hukilau.

Hey 20two, welcome to TC. I'm not using the CompCarve as much as I need to be, to make it pay for itself. But I figured since I do graphic design for a living and wood carving as a hobby, it would be the perfect marriage. BUT, like you said, when I'm done with my graphics work the last thing I want to do is sit back down at the computer again and struggle with new graphics software. I'll PM you about pattern file sharing.

Thanx, SurfinT. Some of the blemishes I speak of are holes made by some kind of wood boring beetle. You can see in the pic below, a hole just to the left under his nose and it comes out in the roof of the mouth-sux--gotta get those buggas outta there! Not to mention the gouge on the left nostril from a chisel gone wild. I'm diggin' the chisel marks too-a first for me. I usually spend hours trying to sand them out but I think they add to the design. I hear you made an appearance @ Hukilau also. I didn't see you cause I didn't know what you look like! Most of the people I met was because I'd seen their pix on TC--show your face!

LLT-thanx, man-now there's a face that's not hard to remember Had a blast hangin' w/ you and your wifey Terrill (tell her Alicia and I say "HI!"), the Squidster and all those other left coasters, you guys know how to a have a a BIG time!

No update for today-got a busy weekend with friends down here @ the beach so I probably wont get much done till Sun or Mon--just wanted to send out Mahalos to the peeps! have a good one, YA'LL!

Thanx for checkin' in, Ben. Have had a busy last week with friends/family down for the holiday weekend (the entire past week, actually). I managed to make a little progress over the last couple of days. I've been dreading the heat and humidity so I only work on it for a couple of hours each day so it's slow going for me.

Did a little dental work-also some linework around the mouth and some head/face shaping:


Gotta long way to go-

Excellent Stuff Again Howland. Yeah for a big guy like this a few big gouges help speed it up. I Loe your chisel marks too but partly because they are organized and follow the contours and are not just Haphazardly thrown about. THOSE Are the ones you don't have to sand away I say WOW Look how much you've Done ALREADY, and you are leaving it clean when you move on to the next area. A Couple hours a day is enough don't try to push it. lookin Great!
That Surfin guy, Ole whatz his name Dave, I found a picture of him swimming with a mermaid but I think he paid her to swim with him, I Think he's the one on the right. Now he may look Totally different when you see him because No one looks the same when they are swimming with the mermaids, they change But anyway here it is:

Oh yeah you could recognize him After the swim because HE Says he tried to grab a giant bottle of Appletons through the glass and broke his hand but II Think he was trying to feel the mermaid's TAIL and she broke his hand and sent him Home!..

Brad, that's looking great so far! Some great fine detail work going on, but you're setting yourself up for a long haul here.

It'll look epic though when its done!

Can't wait to see what comes out of the rest of that log!

I didn't think you had any humidity left yesterday, thought you sent it all up here! The air was dripping wet and I stayed in the air conditioning most of the day.
Canada is sending us some nice dry, cool weather though on Wednesday via a cold front. You get to keep your high dewpoints again.

Are you guys expecting any swell from the now dying Bertha? Wish I could grab some of that if you do get any!

Still looking fantastic, Howland, really.
The way you finish your sessions by cleaning the piece is cool too.

Good luck,

Benjamin.

Thanx, SurfinT--I'm hurrying! As slow as I can!

Benz-I did pick up one big gouge and it's helped tremendously. Any part of this that looks organized or doesn't look haphazardly thrown about, I'll chalk up to luck

Funny pic and funny story about the appletons through the window--except the broken hand part. I do recognize him now though.

Lake Surfer =Dave / Surfintiki=Dave: Daves of the Waves!

Thanx Lake Dave. In it for the long haul for sure, I'll try to pick up the pace here in the next few days. I should be acclimated to the humidity by now since I've lived in the steamy south all my life. Nobody ever gets 'used' to it-just have occasional periods of tolerance with it.

We've been maintaining anywhere from waist to chest high, occasional shoulder high here since last Fri. Semi-glass, a little choppy in the afternoons--pretty fun stuff but I can't credit Bertha with it.

Thanx TikiThomas. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product as well!

Thanx, Benj. I usually rush through a carving and worry about any details or cleaning up after I'm done with the major carving part. Just going for a different approach this time.

Oh I see! Tease the bald guy day! Thanks Benz...you are classic. Yes my hand still hurts, no carvin' today!

Brad, your surf sounds bigger than what we've been having, waist high max here. Maybe I should move down by you! And get you back on a short board! I'm the same age, and just ordered another short board! Funny, I'm a graphic designer too. Tooooo much in common.

Pray for Bertha swell! I guess that doesn't affect Dave (Lake) too much, huh!!!

But, you've also come a long way. It shows confidence that you carved such detail into the face and head, but haven't even roughed in the rest.

Fallen down to page 2... time to bump this thread up!

What's going on down there in Low-Country Brad?

What's the status of the big guy?

Too hot outside?

Surf's up?

Howzit!?

Thanx for the bump, Dave. All of the above--too hot--some good waves (which should be picking up here in the next day or 2 courtesy of Fay), not to mention being too busy getting all my graphics work done for International Surf Expo in Orlando next month--gotta keep the boss (and the tourists) happy. I have made a little progress since last update, I'll see if I can find the pics.
