PDrake, he is looking great for youe second piece and so small at thet. You could use a dremel type tool to finish this guy, or just a Knife, and ofcourse I prefer the hungry Hook knife.

well, i wasn't going to post until he was done, but i know people like work in progress threads.

i need better tools, but i've found that one of the best tools is easy to get. it's also one of the hardest to use. most people hate it, too. sandpaper. especially on stuff this small.





it's tough going, but my companion, buddy helps.

Tools, don't create talent - they help it. You've got the talent. He looks great. I look forward to seeing the finished piece.
