cy "You kiddin' Poobah, I've been worried sick about you. Great new carves with the same meticulous attention to detail. Really nice!"
Thanks cy. It is nice to you you care!
mudbone "What a fine pair of lips on that guy, nice work! & "pjc5150 "nice! "
Thanks guys. I was planning on making this guy as a Christmas present for my mother in law. My father in law pressed for her birthday in August. I felt like I had to rush. He was a silver maple and the wood really fuzzed a lot, but I like him more that he is done. They are big bird watchers. My mother in law gave him a ladies name! Oh well.
laojia "Finishing and color... So cool! Great job Granpoobah!" thanks laojia I appreciate the compliment. Is it cold in France these days? I have been real lucky as the weather has been mild.
hang10tiki "Grandmaster U freekin rock..." Usually I am called a rockhead. Thanks
Creative Chimp "the details...ooohhh the details.......the devils in them aint they? nice work and all those little details are nice...i like" The bottom took a lot longer than I thought. I actually figured that part would go quickly. So the "easier" details were a devil.
amate "I hope you are finding the time for some new projects. Your stuff is always a cut above. Those lips say it all!" Right now I in a holding pattern. Work has been a bit overwhelming this year. My wife has been working at a new position so her hours are longer. I am Mr. Taxi for the kids these days. I brought a few guys in for the winter to restore. Finally I am building a small table for my foyer. My brother in law came back from Iraq a while ago. Another soldier came back with him and drove him home. He brought some marble from a dismantled palace! He left at my father in laws and never came back for it. My brother in law didn't want it. So my father in law and I split in half (we had a kitchen counter place do it). I have to get this off my plate before I do anymore carving. Hopefully that will be soon.
