  • So I maybe in a rut

    So while I’m waiting for the tung oil to cure on my last project had to do something.

        Your passion for fisherman is on constant display, Ed. Great beginning and looking forward to the end result. All are nicely done.

          Neat. What are you using for a carving screw?
          The image is just clipped off to answer my question.
          I have some really nice big, custom-made screws
          but I'm totally paranoid about the screw splitting the block.

            Weldon pow-r-arm screwed to one by pine board glued to carving. No screws in carving saves tools.

                    Thanks everyone, I do enjoy carving the fly fishermen in part because I enjoy the activity. I also like the implied motion in a solid object. My wife (current one, not the first one) told me once that watching me fly fish was like watching poetry. I’ve been jealous every since I have spent a goodly amount of time in the outdoors seen some amazing sites, not sure I ever got to watch poetry. Yet!

                      These fishermen may just become your signature pieces. Everyone will say "Oh, that's a 'Nebraska'."

                            I’m just hoping it dries out enough we can golf on Monday.

                              I'm on the Oregon coast Ed, and I know a lot about heavy depressing rain. Just carve away and it will eventually pass. Nice carving BTW.
