It is hard to carve with hands of ice but here is what is new. I started on a sign for TikiSkip to be delivered by Hukilau in June.


This is the approved sketch

I cut and glued a chunk of bass wood.
He sent me the main focus of the sign, this beautiful float.

This is what it looks like today.



Also working this chunk of hemlock.


"Fishsticks" is a recently completed piece for the Sea Creatures of the South Pacific swap here on TC

That's a lot to come from frozen fingers.
I feel wimpy now tossing in the chisels
below 70.
Very impressive stuff.

Thanks McTiki, it's a lot like doing one of your panels. H10 I.m pleased you like and very happy you also like tikiskip! Will I always wear gloves but even with them I had to go indoors and warm my digits for a few before going back out. I get jealous when I see you Florida dudes carving away wearing shorts and tanks.

Very good MDM, I got a good chuckle with the cyisms. I really took a bunch of wood out of the sign with the notion of lightening as much as possible 'cause I need to ship when complete. My neighbor here at the t shirt shop ships car parts all over the world and gets a great rate from the postal service and UPS so I will have him help me out on that.

So Cy it is -20 here today.
Don't carve in the cold dude, If you finish later no big deal.

It kinda sucks living in this frozen tundra.
We get like half a life here, being as we
hibernate for three or more months.

Ya, ya, I used to ski was fun, but now it makes my bones ache.
I'm too old for this winter crap.

PS those fish on your swap item would look very cool done up
like a Witco in a frame.
Very Mid Cench Modern.

Thanks tikiskip but I carve year round and though I bitch and moan about it I would still be out there cause I enjoy doing it. Your project has moved indoors where I have a nice heated room to use. I'm not the biggest of Witco fans but you are right those fish would look good framed with a fabric background of some kind. Maybe I need to get the torch out and start burning them to see what happens.

Thanks a lot Jeff, it's cool that you and others accept my rather unorthodox style and your comments pump me up and keep me going! Packing up the van and driving to Hukilau would take me away from my t shirt printing business for too long but maybe some year I will make it just to attend and see my Florida carving buds.
