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.
