    WIP

    This is a piece i said something about in my last post.As you can tell i'm no where close to being done,but thought i'd show what i get done so far.If you have any suggestions on this please let me know, as not sure where to go from here. Still need to carve in the doors and windows, and i'll be putting in some round timbers over the doors. Like the pencil marks show. Thanks as always.Click image for larger version.

    Very interesting piece, Stephen! I like the overall shape and the detail you're doing is great! I can hardly wait to see it finished!

    What a fascinating idea. I really like it.
    If you do any selling, I can see a whole series of these---probably find a market in the tourist shops in places like the Grand Canyon.

    Go for the gold.

    Enjoy,

    Man, some people will do anything to keep from having thin walls on a hollow form.

    This is gonna be awesome when you're done, Steve. Great idea, and I have tons of faith in your ability to pull it off.

    By the way, the timbers over the doors that you're talking about are called vigas.

    Fantastic Steve! I'll pile on here as well and tell you to quit the day job go turn full time! (maybe after you find some galleries to sell your stuff, but at least get your pieces out there to make some mad money!)

    That's some cool stuff.

    Kind reminds me of the dwellings around Montezuma well. Are you doing the inside as well?
