Manny DeLuna and the dark side of the moon.

Only just got to read this @ScottR and it's a remarkable set of progress shots that show a truly unique piece of work. You must have some incredible patience, but I also suspect you really love doing carving like this too. Thanks for sharing.

Any Osage Orange left to make Sammy the Sun?

Thank you sir, I do enjoy it immensely.

And no, no more Osage orange on hand. That stuff used to grow like weeds on the farms and timberland where I grew up. It made great fence posts and hedge rows but was never considered very valuable. It's a great idea for Sammy the Sun though.

Wow, I am in awe as I do not have the talent to do that sort of artistic work.  I can envision things with straight lines lurking inside of a pile of wood, but nothing that ornately detailed.  Great skill there, Mr. ScottR!

Magnificent, @ScottR !

Having asked for a wood carving chisel starter set for Xmas, this will give me some great ideas what chisels are useful for what.  I think it would be many years before I could do something like this, though, correct chisels or not!

They are useful for occupying hours of relaxing time while the world goes on around you doing silly stuff you don't even mind missing.
