Great new carves. The chisels are paying off!

Thanks T!

Good to be back at the carving again. I had to take time off from it due to a wicked and ongoing bout of bursitis. I'm only 37 but have had many sports injuries, mostly due to extreme skiing. I have had my ACLs replaced in both knees but a wicked tumble at close to 60mph on skis pulled my shoulder out of socket a couple years ago. Went through therapy and it was getting better. Ended up tweaking it again in the spring this year and couldn't get it to stop hurting. Did more therapy, got a cortisone shot and now I'm feeling great and back to swinging the mallet. Found out, I can carve with a blown knee, but not with a bad shoulder.

I hear ya. I've been using the heaviest model of those green polyurethane mallets. Was killing my right shoulder. Had to change the way I carve. I also need to get a lighter one for "everyday" carving and reserve the heavy one for the big cuts. I like to carve looking over the log and cutting towards me or way from me. It just makes more "sense" like that for me. But now had to switch to cutting sideways either to my left or right switching mallet hands off and on. Uh, hope that makes sense?

Here is a little dude I made for my wife to keep on her desk at work, to ward off the evil spirits.

Well, as a matter of fact... nyuk, nyuk... it is stain that I mixed for a furniture piece. I'm making a bed for my daughter and mixed a mahogany 2 parts with 1 part ebony to create a black cherry look. I liked it so much that I decided the little tiki would look good in it.
