finally finished laojia's piece...its now in his hands and hanging out in france!!!!!!!

below is a is a step by step and was even able to include the tree. The limb is about 20 years old that broke off my mothers tree...mahogany. nice wood to work with and going to trim off some more. This piece i stopped planning so much and just took a chainsaw to it and a new set of rasp...experimented with doing my first inlay and a staining technique to try and make it look old. def need to experiment on that some more.

over all i love the sepik....much more forgiving and i left the small imperfections and chisel marks on ..kinda helped make it look older and used. the biggest lesson i learned this time is to stop thinking and planning so much......just do it and get it done.








and the final. first inlay of abalone shell in the eyes and a distressed stain style...i know they use other shells in the eyes but i like the color of that shell. anyway still experimenting and trying something new each time.......


and the other sides


hes now in a good home.....maybe jerome will take a pic in france....

beautiful work....and the play by play is really cool. interesting to see how just another branch can turn into something with so much character.

YEAH!!!! Yes! He live in a good home! It has arrived safely, now I fathom the top of the tower of the computer. I think he found his place.
I would do a picture soon but I do not think it will be as successful as the above.

Thank's again for this masterpiece Creative Chimp

Beautiful Sepik piece, love the aged approach - it looks like it would be right at home in a museum someplace!
