TikiMango, SurfinTiki, BTScott, Benella, Clarita, Benz - thanks all for the compliments! I'm not completely happy with this design. This is my 2nd attempt and I think I will probably fine tune him a little more and then start another one before finishing him entirely.

I have several more feet of the log he came from so I think he's going to get a brother soon!

I can see a refinement from the first one. Number three is gonna be killer.

Oh wow, I can't believe it's been almost half year since I posted any updates! Happy summer everyone.

Thanks for all the comments on the previous carving. Believe it or not, he's still not finished. This is as far as I got him in February.



Then started a new one. Spent March working on this guy:





And while he's further along than the pics show, he's not finished either. I guess I didn't take any newer pics yet...

Spent April & May working on this new guy:







Then, put that guy aside and started working on this little misshapen log:







This one was really just an experiment/practice on carving legs, bringing the body out of the wood, carving deeper, blah, blah blah. It started to look better and better along the way. The head is still misshapen. Don't know if I can fix that or not, but I think I'm going to set him aside and go back to the unfinished one from Feb and see if I can finish all these guys out this summer.

Thanks for looking all! Comments and ideas welcome!

Big T,

The care you are putting into these guys really shows. I REALLY like the tall one but don't give up on the last one either. Some of my favorite carvings are the asymetrical ones. Gives them personality. Post again soon.
