Hang10 that's a fine lookin' shirt you have there. "Sparkles" is a great word and compliment TT. My new carving year starts now, after the last vending event of '13. Here is the start of the next season, destination Caliente.
My son bought a trick pair of composite oars for his drift boat and gave me his old wooden ones. "Orville" is the work in progress.

It's 8 and a half feet tall so I may take the middle section out. I bought a concrete Moai from Big Ed at Tiki Oasis that is also pictured. I will add a figure on the handle with a big top knot.

This is a piece of drift wood that has been in my barn since 1995.

Too bad the ocean doesn't wash this flotsam or jetsam up on my shores.

Also started this chip of eucalyptus from MadDog Mike for a carving for my son Neil. When complete it will feature a big turkey feather head dress and a hanging turkey beard. He is a big time hunter.
I have never used a stranger wood than this eucalyptus and ended up splitting a log and carving from the inside out. It pleasured me to think outside my own rather large box, hope Neil likes it.

Always appreciate the posi-comments H10. I introduced myself to Bay Park Buzzy at Tiki Oasis and he said something like "You're the guy that stacks stuff" and I never thought of that but you know what - he's right. Here is "Orville", another stacked piece.




Thanks to MadDog for this eucalyptus. Hard like walnut but a beautiful red color and the grain is gorgeous.


Also started a couple of cedar chunks.

I missed some stuff Cy!

Love that oar, very cool. Glad you were able to use that eucalyptus. It has a beautiful color but seems like it would be a pain to carve - it's like a rock! Plenty more where that came from

As I row thru your post I'm seeing fields of Bamboo.
You got that stuff up there? Oh yes, I see it's in a pot. I guess you take it in all winter.
BTW "Orville" the bomb.

Thanks amigos, the wood of the oar was fantastic (I think it's fir) and it kept making me spend more and more time on the detail. I'm glad I have another one. Will, bamboo grows really well here, my neighbor has some thats about 30' tall and an inch thick. Thanks Wendy, with all the work you guys do I don;t know how you have time to check in.

Love Orville, and love all your "stacked" pieces. Hopefully I will be able to see it in person one of these days.

Don't think I haven't thought about that H10, but this bamboo does not spread, it just clumps and so remains out of my reach. hiltiki hope you journey to either Tiki Caliente or Oasis 14 for a live view. I decided to band the design around the top of this heavy cedar stump like a cartoon strip rather than stack.

It will have birds, fish, insects, and mammals.

Also worked this driftwood from the Oregon coast.

Maddog I am enamored with the way the eucalyptus carves and look forward to doing more.

It is for my son and he will add a turkey feather head dress and beard.
