Well the shoulder is feeling better every day, the Doc will not let me lift more than 30 pounds, so small rocks here I come, just have to do it on weekends again, they need me back at work.was hoping for more time to carve.
Here is my 1st stone carving done a few weeks ago:

Here are some more that I started before my Surgery.
It was good to get back to working with stone again.



Here is the one that I did before Surgery, but I went back and Polished
The eyes

also did some polishing on the new tiki, to bring
out the details a little better

these are my first castings ever, always wanted to cast something, and when I was off work for three months I finaly got a chance to try it out.
The tiki's holding the anvils where for my Highland games, we have an anvil throw contest
as part of the games, men throw 155 pound anvil, and women throw a 55 pound anvil, I use these pennets for the champions in each class




These mugs where for the champions in the classes at the highland games,
I sand blasted the Rhino Games logo, and painted kilts on.

A little wood peice that I'm working on


new stone started

it's been a while since I have posted any thing, I'ts is very hard to find time to carve stone, but here are a few things that I've been working on here and there.
this 1st one is of 3 "tiki" sand blasted, something i did at work in a rare down time, hand cut the pattern on the stone then blasted them,

then I took tools to them to make them come more to "tiki life"

I call this guy the red one

I call this the blue one

they both still need some more work.
here is another that is in the working stages, a little more sanding and it will be alright



coments are always welcomed.
thanks for letting me share my work.
PS, My shoudler is doing great, as of June 5th, I can lift as much weight as I want & can!
so I'm hope to start something a little bigger.

Thanks seek, most of the time I don't even have a plan or have a clue how they will come out, I just draw a little bit on the stone then start grinding and cutting, I'm glad that you like them. as I get bigger hunks of stone, I'll have to plan those out a little more.

Nice work, first time I saw your work. For some reason when I see your sand-blasted stuff, the first thing that comes to mind are custom hearth stones. I'll take a small commission when you get started on your first order...

I Love how well your works are progressing and your pieces are getting more refined with cleaner detail. Love the wood stuff too. How's the shoulder these days, what is it 6 months now after surgery?
I Really love that last t-shirt you did too, any of those left?
Cheers

No Problem Kilted, 2X of the first one.
Your tikis are Really getting More detailed I loove how you are rounding out those straight cuts And the blasted tikis intonthe polished stone like "The Red tiki" are Super looking.
Keep up the grat work and Take your time.
