    I found some smooth bark short blanks and decided to try something else. The wood I have had in storage for several years, don't ask don't tell. IMG_1363.JPG IMG_1359.JPG Actually the pics came out bigger than I thought they wood.. I found this WeCheer chisel tool very helpful in some of my carving due to the lack of my hand movements . The faces are on the opposite sides, whats your mood today? IMG_1356.JPG IMG_1358.JPG

    Kind of a Polynesian style caricatures, like them, going any further?

      Wel JoeB That was reall a fluke. I had these two pieces? And Thought what the heck can I do with them they are harder than the stone my son carved for my wife. So i just sat and looked at them thinking what can I do then the faces just poped up.

      Like a lot of us I guess some ideas work out, I would like to pursue it a bit more. I have some smaller hard wood maybe try that before wandering off in to the sun somewhere? And actually I have not done any caricatures of any amount and have no practice. The dragonfly is for a cousin she likes those and the faces are for here life long friend..
      Guess I'll have to get to getting on the ideas.?
      Cheers

        Interesting pieces, Chuck. Never did that type of work.

          Hi Chuck.
          I would never have thought of doing that. Have to agree with Joe on the Polynesian flair. Would make nice garden pieces I think.
