So Will, you are saying these fronds are just mindless child's play for you? Looks pretty damned good to me!

Mike,
I'd like to be so cavalier but as some say here
"practice makes perfect"
For example,
Aren't you glad I didn't do this on
an 8 ft. log.

Hey Will, I've been admiring your canoe for a while now and I must ask, what inspired such a mammoth undertaking? What was it that sparked your drive to complete such huge endeavor? Amazing work my friend...

Texas T, that's a good question.
I started that in Aug.
Got a rash from it in Sept. lost a month carving.
Finished up in Feb with 400 hrs in it.
I like to push the envelope when ever I can &
I can see long complicated projects to the end.
Inspiration came from Shags Tang in a canoe paintings.
He has done a few. 2 man, 3 man.
I thought, 10 man, no !5 man.
The log allowed 11.
The bobble head idea came along when I was figuring out
how to attach the heads.
Now I wish it would sail off.
I don't have the room &
I'm on to something else
Thanks for asking.

Proportions do look a bit off

Funny, just the other day I was thinking it would be cool to have some sort of deal like a chess clock so you could tell how much time you had in a project. I decided I didn't want to know

I can't thank every one enough that can see
how much work went into that canoe and took
a moment to comment on it. Stuff like that makes
the world go a round.
So I'm doing a few fronds for friends. They go quick &
I can try new things with out worrying about
screwing up an 8 ft. log.
