Learned a new free program called Sculptris version1.02 to make a 3d Panther head

That program is great, isn't it? I get started with it and the time FLIES!!

I really need to get some time and actually cut something from it, lol!

Nice work as always-

Didn't take the youngest long to figure out what to put in the cutouts I made for the kayak.

Here is a one using Osage Orange, Nice hard, tight grained wood. Holds a pretty good edge and very pretty without staining.

The Wrap for the totem pole is 60" x 13" x 6" Longest and thickest one I've done, HDF and painted
He wanted the metal pole that held the totem up covered.

I filled between with "Great Stuff" foam, protecting it with 24" wide waxed paper, so the foam would not stick to the HDF inside curve. Then wrapped it with straps till it expanded, conformed to the shape and cured, then removed it and machined the outside to suit. Photo shows the rough cut.

Using latex caulking to hold the wrap in place & to seal it. Again holding it with straps till cured. Fun project  ;D Even got to do some hand painting for effect.
