    Re: Golf Guy Commission

    Thank you Corey, the process of getting it on the forum is almost as much effort as the carving project.

        More follow up pictures of work done today. The first Willow branch Golf club didn't turn out like I wanted so I've cut another and set it up in jig to dry overnite. I hope to get it finished tomorrow. Spent the rest of the day figuring out the base and setup display. I'll want to add another larger base under the one in the picture then get started painting the piece.

            Bob:
            If the switch doesn't set correctly after you remove it from the jig, put on the teakettle, and then hold the switch in the live steam for about 5 minutes. The section that has been steamed can usually be easily bent while hot, put into the jig to cool, and then will retain the bend once it's cool.

              Thank you Claude. It seems to have dried just as I wanted it. Detailing handle now.

                Pictures of the finished product. Hope you enjoyed the process of development and would encourage your suggestions of future presentations.

                I applied Watco Natural all over. Then started within the hour by adding Oil paints (shirt and pants). I decided for detail painting this was not the thing to do for me(Oil Paint). For instance much to long to dry in order to handle and not smear the colors. The edges of colors although went on sharp edged would be fuzzy within time. I wound up finishing the rest of the colors with acrylics with a light coat of Watco mixed with Burnt Umber(Oil Paint).

                I haven't come with an appropiate name for the piece yet, at least a name that would be presentable for all. Got any ideas?

                Note: for some reason the pictures are showing his body shortened more than it actually is. I guess I would blame it on me taking the picture too close to the subject and causing distortion from a camera view slightly above center.

                    What a great finish!... Again it 's neat to see the whole work unfold before my eyes. You client will be impressed (and he got a bargain at that). You could call him
                    "Billy Duffer".

                              Bob,

                              That is one beautiful piece. There is one thing I gotta say though - If that's the follow through with the swing, the ball really ought to be laying just in front of the tee.

                                This turned out so good. I have really enjoyed watching this one progress. Thanks so much for sharing all of the post. The carving and painting are both very well done.

                                Safe Carving and God Bless,
