stick my head in the sand for a bit and Squid starts growing branches out the wa-zoo... what the... Darwin effect takes over and the son of the see sprouts legs and morphs into a industrial little beaver with culinary abilities.....

what's next......... more nice stuff

I know, I know. You're saying to yourself, "If Squid would just APPLY himself and snag more kitchen utensils we would see more carvings than this pathetic dribble of stuff every month and a half, give or take a week" Well at least that's what I'd be thinking looking at this snail's-pace posting!

But alas, Squid is a lazy-ass cephalopod and only has this to offer. It's already sold so I can't even milk it into a Marketplace thread. *sigh*

I give you the Mahogany Moai #3 with teak toggle:





I really enjoyed carving the mahogany. It's quite hard but I liked the fact that you can get really crisp cuts into it. And the grain is awesome. It was a real surprise to see it pop when I put the first coat of finish on. Next time I'll go for more decorative detail. Basic silhouette was cut with a coping saw and the balance done with Dremel and various x-acto blades (hook, pelican, flat). This guy was made from a discarded fireplace facade that my neighbor was THROWING OUT!!! The horror!!

Little Lost Tiki has done some dremeling/painting on a couple of pieces and I gave Kirby a big chunk of it. Be sure to bug him

Looks great! I love working with recycled wood. What did you do for a finish? I've got a piece that I think is mahogany and I can't decide how I'm going to finish it.
