Only thing left to finish
is the finish.
This log has trashed 3 of my chisels.
It's a tuff ol dude.
Just look at the cracks running thru it.

"Huge Props" Will carve, an excellent job on that oak tang. I think the crack looks great and adds character. Merry Christmas!

very cool...and yeah, I bet it was a tough one to cut. I cut some oak branches for a neighbor recently and wow....afterward the chain on my saw looked like I had taken a hammer to it...I mean just beyond re-sharpening...

glad you posted this...I've got the holiday "I can't get motivated to work on anything" syndrome & need some inspiration.

hope you're having a nice holiday Will...

I've had a chance to spend some time with this one and can tell you it has a dirty little secret that kinda adds to the over all petina of the wood. The oak has beautiful coloring in the spalting. Can't wait to see how you finish it - or if it is finished?

What kind of chisel did you use to carve the cracks? They look so real.

Thanks for the comments gang.
I can't think of any thing I want to carve &
I don't have any logs I want to get started.
So, guess I'll bang on my Tang some more.

I started chopping the body thinner.
Then I wasn't happy with the mouth so
I wiped it clean & I'll try again.



Also,
The secret hiding under his oaken skin,
that Aloha alluded to?
There is an army of worms marching thru this log.
These holes are so big I can fit my finger down them.

In conclusion.
I worked over the chest & back .
Redid the mouth.
He got fingers & Kiss kinda shoes.
Gave him a good sand paper scratching &
2 coats of poly.
The color of this surprised me.
I have a chunk left I may try something
really different for me.

Simply beautiful!

I was intrigued that you wiped the mouth off and still had room for a new one. Excellent!

When I hear worms in some of my logs (yes, you can hear them chewing up inside the tunnels), I pour Everclear or Mineral spirits down the holes and come back later to hear only silence.

Thank you again for sharing.

Mahalo
