Nice carve...no "butts" about it. Another classic!
Anxious to see what you come up with next.

Another beautiful carve Will. I am always amazed by the smooth finishes some of you guys get. I either need a better sanding technique or more patience.

I thought the same thing as McTiki in that there would not be enough room to take the mouth out and re do it, but he looks much better and the paint pops the grain!

I saw that as soon as you started! Old, rotten, worn eaten wood can be some of the most beautiful. It only takes vision to see beyond the blemishes.

I'm so impressed with the color
of that last log I have to figure out
what to do with the 18 in but I cut off.
I'm surfin thru T.C. & I see this carved Monkey Skull.



This is the coolest thing I've seen
since my 3 legd Tang.

It was followed by Crazy Als mug version.



It's all coming together now.
How cool is that?

So I'm feelin real good about my carve.
Startin to take form, makin progress & all.
My neighbor comes over & I ask him what he thinks it is.
He rubs his chin & says, a motorcycle seat.


I'm carving along & I uncover a soldier in the army of worms
marching thru this log.
Man was he surprised.
Bet he's never seen daylight before.

I dislodged him.
This is his lil face.
Think his mom would recognize it?


Now he's trying to make a getaway.
This is the south end of a
north bound worm.


So I fed him to my lizard
and he liked it.

Will, I hear those are good sauted in a little butter and garlic ~ taste like chicken!
(I was talking about both the grub and the lizard )

Hi Will,

Wicked work, this spalted tang is brillant.
I have a question though, are you 100% sure it is oak?
Just because spalting usually does not happen in oak, but more likely birch, beech, aspen and sugar maple.
And by the look of it, your log make me think about maple which is also maple hard as hell.
Anyway, just curious about it.

Well Cljha here's the story.
I got this log from my neighbor.
He cut the tree down & left a 6 ft stump standing.
2 or 3 years later he cut the stump down.
That's where I come in.
I'm 65% sure he knows his trees so there's room for error.
I'm here in Florida & we have 3 or 4 kinds of oak.
The color is spectacular but it's not so much fun to carve.
It's a tuff ol dude.
