Yes, I have finally joined the woodies! After sculpting Benzart's mugs and oogling over everybody's posts here, I got inspired to carve again after 30 some-odd years. I doubt I'll ever be prolific due to other commitments but when I have time, it's as enjoyable as anything. So here's the first project that I'm not embarrased to show. Trust me, there are a couple that shall become kindling.





Whittled from exotic recycled wood. Species:thriftus storum saladi spoonus.
I'll post more as they're done.

Hey Squid! Nice looking Moai whittlin'. I like the curli-Q's. Stylin'! I hope you are hooked on carving now.

I tried out a bit of Casteline. It's kind of sticky, but holds detail very well. Try it!

OK, here's Moai #2 from the same exotic wood source. Same size as #1. He's a bit more aggressive with a slightly slanted top. Nose inspired by gangster in old Looney Toons cartoon!!





Goes up for sale shortly. Thanks for looking!
