thanks brother....I appreciate the props.

This last year has been crazy, and through a lot of luck and kissing people's asses I'm starting to build a rep.

it's kinda funny you threw the picasso thing out there...that's what the old cuban lady across the street from me says...lol.

so anyway, the work goes on...

shaved these this afternoon after I voted...drawin' some out tonight...

I can see you're still peeling them with the chainsaw. What kind of wheel are you using on that angle grinder. I just got one and need to learn the ropes.

well I use 40 grit flap discs...the blue ones.

although when I visited him a few months ago, Will showed me the little flat red ones that he uses, and they're less expensive...I should probably switch...

also, look into a getting a router speed controller....slows 'em down and makes them more manageable.

and wear some gloves...angle grinder wounds are quite painful, as it's an abrasive wound...like when you fell of your bike at full speed when you were a kid and went sliding across the pavement on your hands and knees...

but yeah, the "chainsaw filet" technique us what I use. I skinned those 8 logs in about 2 hours...

anyway, glad all this election shit is over with...tired of hearing about it...

anyway, time to start drawin' & cuttin' some tikis for this weekend's boat show...

You sure have a knack for those fish.
Also, perhaps your best mouths & teeth too.
