Hi Will,

Thanks for the answer. So I did some "research" and apparently oak can also spalt. So, my mistake probably...
I recently carve a bowl out of some seasonned spalted maple...I do understand what you say about the not fun to carve
But the end result is spectacular (colorwise) and if anything it helps pushing the sharpenning skills:)
Oak is quite tough normaly but apparently from what I've been reading the spalting lines are also tough on the tools edges....
Anyway, I do think it is a good learning process to work with harder wood

Well I've got a good start on my carved monkey skull.
Since I didn't have a monkey skull to start with,
I had to carve one.
That's where I am at now.
This is not a biology exercise however
perhaps I could have consulted Robert
on simian anatomy.
Now I can carve the "carved" part
of the carved monkey skull.

That is a great carve Will, especially the choice of wood as it makes the skull look real. You sure took a lot of material out, can't wait to see what kind of detailing you do to it.

Well carved. It will look awesomely aged once it gets a few coats of poly.

The hardest part of this carve was
knowing when it's over.
I rubbed off a few days of tats when
I realized they only cloud the
good looks of the wood.
That was the reason I carved this wood.
