Thanks, I will get to work on it some more tomorrow. Should really start to look like something. I think when it's done and sitting in it's stand it should be pretty bitchin'

that looks interesting, thats going to get hard to carve once you get to the back side. I bet the tip of that beak is brittle

The beak is solid and strong. No worries there. The backside is no problem either. It rolls over nicely on the 4x4's. The head will resemble a birds skull and will be stained a white to simulate bone. The body will be darker. Going to get materials today for the holder/stand.

I made the stand yesterday. It will get painted satin black. Set the peckerhead in the stand for a look see. Had to use an engine hoist to get it in there. Heavy for one guy. Still need to finish the staining. Head will be white wash. Body will be dark .This on is already spoken for. Wish makes me happy. Yeah!, More hotrod parts!

Put the finishing touches on the birdman today. It is available if interested. I thought I had it sold but he wants something different. So I'm carving him a different one now. I can deliver to LA on Father's Day if need be. I think it turned out awesome. I am really happy with it.

To be a trendsetter you gotta think outside the box. Someday when I'm dead it will be worth millions.

I think the head is too pointed. I did not want it to look like an alien. It was supposed to look like a bird skull. Maybe I'll round the top of the head more.

Since My last carve was so Out There I decided to head back to what I know. Here is my latest. It's 6' 4" and heavy. Just about busted something while standing it up. Not as strong as I used to be. Still need to do a few details and sand some more but it's getting there. It is a little top heavy and will have to be secured when it is set in place. Enjoy if you will. Cheers!
