I really like the way that looks. Great work. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one that has stayed up really late at night carving.

well, I must say, my LOG PORN isn't nearly as exciting as what's happenin' on Will's thread with that big sexy hunk of rosewood, but I loaded up on cypress at the sawmill yesterday & I'm about to get after it...

I got lucky & got a discounted artist spot at this year's home show... so I plan on takin' a bunch of tikis, fish, driftwood, etc...

I have a lot to get done..



and the new kanaloa is coming along nicely as well..

well ok, this dude is close to done...

just need to separate those legs a little, and finish detailing the mouth and nose...

and then figure out what color he's gonna be... I'm leanin' towards espresso since it hides everything & I don't feel like doing a bunch of sanding...

well. ok... here's what I made yesterday.

unfortunately it was dark when I finished it, so all I have is this rough cut photo from when he was half done... but I was very happy with is overall shape... I think I actually improved a little on this guy. I do A LOT of ku's... it's pretty much my most popular piece... but this is my favorite ku body that I've done yet.

I'm goin' out to see the customer in a few days to look at him in the daylight to make sure I don't need to tune anything up-... I'll get some better pics then...

but it was a very colorful piece of cypress and he was just under 6 ft...

so, styles evolve, and mine is no different...

this is kinda my "new ku"...

2nd one of this style with the Will-inspired head-dress & body profile... but I feel good about this design... I like it.

so, today we're movin' & shakin'...\

got a jingle from one of my lookey-lou's & got wind of a log pile... he said cedar, but I get there & it's definitely not cedar... so I knock on the door & the lady who lives there says it was a weeping elm...

So I spoke to the wise one, and he advised me to take all I could carry, and save a few logs for him...

aye aye sir...

anyway, very nice shape & color to these things...\

and the leaves were still green, which means they cut it live... I felt the cuts & it's still wet inside so it should carve nice....

Tom, whenever you swing through here with that rosewood log I'm gonna put some of this in your hands for you, Will, & Benz...

I guess he couldn't hear that ROTARY DIAL phone ringing over the MOVIE he was watching on BETAMAX while playing his ATARI 2600....

LOL!!!




anyway, enough screwin' around... time to turn this log into a fish...
