Good idea pjc, don't carve too deep though. Mad Dog I was going to use maple but the cost was prohibitive. I will finish this one and then do one more that will have the feet in the fat part of the bat and the face towards the handle.

Maybe you can collect broken bats from the Portland Sea Dogs?

For me the fun stops when I have to use my reading glasses to carve but a recent visit to see Aloha and Will carve made me take another look at the importance of finishing. Here are some I completed and some older ones that I went back through.
"Facebook" (Maka Puke) This one is close to finish. I will paint him mostly red.

"Shiela" was my first attempt at a female.

"Kona" is a piece of palm that I added to an old coffee maker.

This is a kind of totem made out of a who knows kind of 4x4

Finished and got a coat of varnish on "Ashton". In the background is "Keith"

Three branches of plum that will be a band with drummer, guitar, and horn.

Also got "Louis" done.

You are inspired.
Lot-a stuff going on there.
If you can't see it, you can't carve it.
Take macro pictures of something you carve &
they will show the level of clean detail or not.
For Mango my pendant, I wore 3 pair of glasses.
looked silly but I could see it & in the real close
up pic I posted you can see a blemish right next
to his nose. Couldn't see it holding it in your hand. I did fix it.

Thanks H10 and MDM, always happy when you like. Pjc next time I visit Florida I'll look you up. Willcarve I have been looking at how I finish since my visit, but a telescope and 40 pair of glasses is where I draw the line. Here is what is new.
"Bernie" is so named cause of his burnin' desire.

He is made from a cedar branch that crashed through my deck a few years ago.

I did some work on "Barry" also.

This is a piece that I designed the profile first but it seemed too thick so I sawed him in half and reversed the image.

I REALLY like the last one that you had to cut in half - has a cool disney/cubist feel to it. Would look great the way you have it (back to back) or flanking an entrance. Well done! You have quite a few tikis in there!!!
