I didnt know there were Marquesian Bigfoots . They probably call them something else, you know like how Bigfoot is called "The Alabama Bogger" in the south.

Mr. Woofmutt,

Your tearing it up brother! That first carving really has a "BIG" presence. He must be 4 "FOOT" tall? You RAWK master Woof!

I am also quite jealous of the fact that you have the new model FX2010 water cooled, split action, turbo, combination chain saw and concrete saw. Thank goodness it has that compass built into the handle!

That tiki would look right at home next to a toilet on your front lawn. Maybe you could carve
a magazine rack on the side of it's head to hold your favorite reading material (Enquirer, People,
Quilting World, Cat Fancy).

Gosh. Wow. Jeez. Neat. Thanks! Thanks to everyone fer all the great comments!


I really got bit by the carvin' bug and had these great plans and dreams of sellin' my artwork from my own lil piece of dirt and gravel along a highway somewhere and then this happened:





Quite a set back. Quite a lotta blood, too. I took a buncha pictures of the bandages to show yuh all but they got deleted. Here'a squirrel though:






There was a long wait at the emergency room but fortunately I had my pocket knife and one good hand...






...And I pulled a small branch outta my upper arm and carved these:






I gave 'em to the emergency room staff. They thought it was funny.



The doc says I got a lotta options fer a new hand, but I already know what I want:





Useful as heck and obviously chicks dig it!

You could sell your chainsaw design to the big car companies... I'm guessin it gets very high gas mileage with the piston totally exposed...

Sorry about throwing that tree on your house, but I wasn't in a very good mood that day.

My first Working Wood the Woofmutt Way workshop wrapped up last night. Of the original seven people enrolled only three stuck it out to the end. (I guess the others just couldn't hack it!)

Here are the final tiki projects:



Though their skill levels are similar I was really impressed with the diversity of styles.

These tikis are for sale on the
Craigslist. You should take this chance to buy a real piece of work from up and coming carvers.

You can express your opinions however you like. Artists are rarely thin skinned people prone to flying off the handle. And I doubt TC people would make a big deal out of something as small as an opinion they don't agree with. But more importantly I don't care what people think of my workshop attendees' work as long as the attendees keep paying me the $150 fee to attend. And $75 for supplies.

Curious Cats and Blow Up Dolls

Sounds like a rockabilly porno flick.
