    My jeans fly ;-) UPDATED!!

    Hi guys.

    Just arrived back from my holydays where I have spent most of my time carving, and when I say most of my time I mean between 8 and 10 hours a day.

    Honestly, they felt like minutes, and here is the result. It is not finished yet as I have to start working on the fine details that will give it the final punch but I thinks that it starts to give the right impression.

    Carved from three pieces of basswood glued toghether, that were cut from the same board.

    Pictures shown in cronological order except the last ones wich exemplify what I could see from the shop door ( my father in-law garage).

    Comments, critics and suggestions welcome as always!

    Thanks for looking.

    Let me be the first to say welcome back Toni. Hope you had a good time. What a novel idea for a carving. Sure looks good.

    Aloha, Tony

    Welcome back Toni!

    Looks like it's shaping up to be another winner of a project.

    I'm guessing your temporary shop was a fairly peaceful place to while away the hours... I'm envious.

    Welcome back Toni!

    Love the carving, it's quite inspirational. I'm with Larry, you're going to have to start getting some pieces put in to some galleries.
