OK,
Knowing this guy will live outside & looking to protect him I painted him with 20 year latex house paint. The color was so close to the wood color you couldn't tell it was painted. Then I hit it with a brown glaze, ragged it off & stood him up.



The one on the right fell off his log a month ago.
With no treatment he turned gray, got moldy & rotted from the inside out.

Seeks, Think this guy could hang with the boys in the Bog?

Jerome,
I wasn't so concerned with how it looked as that I could make it work.
I glued the axis pin in it. That made it an EZ install but now it can't be serviced.
Also, the bullet latch is a nice touch but, if I made another one I would use a pin and corresponding holes to line it up.
Thanks for the lesson.

He's been busy but slacking on the updates!! Come on - show what you got!!!

He has a log pile with some nice pieces of palm. The new log makes them look like toothpicks.

Thank you all for your encouragement.
That log is a monster. 16 ft tall & 18 in trunk.
cabbage palm, almost no bark at the bottom.
I'm going to have to come up with something good for that.


Maybe I should show this in beyond tiki.
This is a good case of why I should have a picture
and a clear idea of what I'm carving and not let
my hands & tools go where they want.I think my
ancients are really young & they just mess with me.




These masks are for Christie,
for her party this summer.
I need to finish all 3 of these, but they need to dry out more first.

I think its a good case for why you SHOULD NOT have a picture or clear idea of what you are carving!

PS - what you can't see is that the lizards each have their own set of shell eyes!
