best of luck in the new job!

Aloha from sunny Alicante, Spain. My name is Guillermo and I've just gotten started on bone carving of all sorts. Found your forum through Google.

I have no previous carving experience and started as part of therapy after watching a couple of videos on youtube (Louie The Fish, Rick Gunter and Santi aka Antipodart) and was immediately hooked -never better said!

I decided that my first project should be a sea turtle following Rick Gunter's tutorial and I have thoroughly enjoyed it! Second has been a tiger claw and will continue practicing. Here's a small (and terrible) clip of the turtle just prior to finishing:
http://youtu.be/P1apN58NRPU?list=UUE7Z3_YKW9ApH9qVLASpdsQ

And hope you can see these photos:









I have several tools that I use for other interests that will be useful: typical Dremel and flex shaft, another "generic" no brand Dremel look-a-like (but much more powerful!), a micro motor set, and lots and lots of burs (diamond and TC).

Hope to make new friends and learn more things here with you guys and share my experience with you.

Thanks.

Nice work, and welcome to TC!!!

Just a little joke in reference to your comment "and was immediately hooker" (unintended meaning "a prostitute")
I see your working on your English, so this was a bit of a unintentional funny remark
but you're doing just fine & welcome to Tiki Central!

Don't worry, most Americans don't understand ATP's humor, so GROG doubt someone from Spain (or any other country) will fair any better.

Very nice carvings. GROG like.

The Spelling Police might want to note that the word "fair"
in GROG's opening line above should have been "fare"

Oh... Where was my mind?! Hooker??? Hooked it should have been ! hahahaha Mind wondering corrected!

Well the fact that I live in Spain don't mean that I'm Spanish, now does it? hahahaha Though I am 50%

I'm half breed 50% American/Spanish. Lived half my life abroad, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, Spain, France, Germany, UK... so many countries but then again who's counting!

Proud of my heritage, and will not deny my half breed... then again, aren't we all half breed one way or another? Proud of my spelling/grammar too and in 3 different languages: French, Spanish, English. Enough politics...

Many thanks for your comments. It encourages me to continue. I feel that every piece that I carve has a bit of me in it; I have considered selling them and my entourage also encourages me to do so but I don't know...

I'm now working on two new sea turtles I guess just to prove to myself that this was not a first timer luck thing. Will see!



More to continue...
