Thanks for looking guys ..... I took a break from the chisels to head back into the Sierras for a few more days of camping and fishing ... Ready to get back into the swing of things! I did get some more work done on this marq last week. The body is coming together and I can get started on some of the detail work. It's an old, dry log so some cracks and splits are showing up deep. Hopefully they're not where the detail needs to go.

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

He's coming together .... got some details done today and some sanding. I'm not sure how to finish this one though. I am undecided on whether to burn the recessed areas or to use a dark stain in those areas and then a lighter stain for the raised areas .... quite the conundrum ....

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Funny that you should mention that, Jeff! He was just out back at the tattoo parlor!



This log is very dry and crumbly so I don't want to try and force too much detail.

Tall marq is done... Turned out okay for a very dry log.





Jumped into the next one .... a small "Big Mouth" for a wedding present ... no white teeth, I promise!

Facebook is making me switch to something called timeline so I needed a cover photo .... The wife snapped this pic and I thought it was pretty cool to have all the fellas lined up .... After spending most of my days face down into carving, it's cool to step back and check out what I've accomplished ... I really hate to part with any of these guys!

yeah, I am just getting to the point where I'm making stuff that I want to keep.

There was one point where I had like 30 tikis here at the house and then started progressing and suddenly I didn't want any of those older ones around anymore and I gave most of them away to people just because I just didn't want to look at them anymore. I still have my first tiki which is obviously important, and also my 5th tiki, which I kinda thought was the one where I decided that I was getting better and was going to keep making tikis, but all the rest are gone but my most recent stuff, most of which where given away to people & whatever. I don't even remember where 3/4 of them went.
