I know it looks strange. The tiki was on the scanner glass with a Black cloth over it (black?)yes.
I have to play with it to get it right.

Benzart, I dont carve with a colt 45 long. But I do use knives. Just got a set, and learing to sharpen them. Try my hand at carving , using cut offs from my new fence. will post them as soon as I can get the prints done.

Doc, take care with the fence wood which is filled with chemicals to preserve the wood. they can be deadly. Usingknives is not bad if you keep your hands clean, Sanding is another matter. You Must wear a heavy duty Dust Mask.
Got pix yet, c'mon it's been 20 minutes already....

First ,the wood is 2# dug. fir not treated ,or pressure treated lumber. I work in house framing, but thanks for the warning ,we all need to practice safe craving. As for the pic.,I have to learn how to scan them in ( have to have my kid show me how).

Way to go Doc, not bad for your first. Don't lose this pic and take more. One day you will want to look back at these pictures.The more you carve, the better you get.
