Wow! That Tang is Stylin'! And the finish is perfect.
Nice Rei Puta pieces too, spread across the ocean no less...they should be in every corner of the globe!! World dominance!!

- Thank you Clarita and Bennno! OK for the bench, anyway I've been on the beach:




-Surfin'Dave! World dominance!! I would not go that far, otherwise I will not have time for my day nap. Thank you for kind words, especially for the Tang, you're making some so beautiful.


-Seeksurf, thank you too! Glad you like chips...


-4WBill, I think you saw right, motion passed:


Many thank's!




News from the bench:



A scarface Moai in Birch:


In fact, the scarface is an internal crack. It was not visible when I start. Curious thing, I also have a small scar at the same place due to a cut when I was in school ...


A Tang carved in a hard and old (100 years) plank of Scots Pine:



Despite its age the timber is still full of sap and spread a very pleasant smell. But what a bitch to work!



there are still finishing on this one, the wood does not sanding, all the papers clog with sap, even the blades become dirty.



That's all for today!
Thank's for looking and have a nice day!


Jérôme.

I love the Scottish Tang! Great use of the wood's dimensions. And the zebra-like grain is poppin'. Hope you use a light stain so it still shows!

All great works, but I love the Tang the most!

That's where your wild woodgrain is coming from... there's so much sap in that guy!

Careful if you hit it with a torch... that sap goes up quickly!

Also, sometimes the stain has a hard time drying on super sappy pieces... it can't soak in as good.

If you want to remove some of the gummy surface so you can sand easier, try a citrus based cleaner and rub it on.
Or just try some cut limes or lemons and rub off with a clean cloth. I've used it with success on logs that would weep sap and make a sticky mess.

Right on! the Moai scar is crazy and the thin tang is so cool. I love the grain.
Everyone says the pine does not carve well, but after seeing this YOU made it look
like gold.

Well, full of work in the workshop these few day. Some Tiki, some furniture, lot of dust and chips but no more pics. All is started and nothing finished... An happy mess!
I hope make an update with full of pics soon, when the days will count 36 hours...



-Thank's for the comp' Bill, no stain for this Tang, a natural finishing, just polished. A pic below... It will be hung in the small office of my wife.

-Tikigodz, thankz !

-Thank you for kind words and precious advises Dave! I found the back of the shop an old bottle of citrus-based thinner. This helped me a lot, also to clean the blades. Thank you again.

-"Zen-Tang is nothing short of world class!" WOW... Thank you Amate! I'm glad to see your new work.

- Seek-Master-of-log, thank you too! The Scots pine has given me right from wrong and even more to my gouges, three completely re-sharpening. Now it is finished I'm really happy, especially since it's a holiday memory, this piece of wood come from Portugal. Thank's again for the kind words!

- Da BenZ! Thank's for reply and comp'! Also glad you like it this little gift. I hope you post a photo as well done as this
one . Thank's again for support Sensei carver!

-Thank's thank's thank's TikiG!

-Conga, thank you. The relief carving hanging was carved by my father 30 years ago in three exemplary. This represents a thistle around a cross of Lorraine, the region where we live.

- Thank's for the comp' Clarita! I have already started using these little things from the beach, news soon. And the plums are ripe soon ... Stay tuned.


Thank's all for looking!
Have a nice day!


Jérôme.
