Just love the love of the wood. Your work is awesome.
Does the sinker cypress cost much more to buy?

Monte…thanks…! The sinker cypress is more expensive than regular cypress but is much more beautimous than the new growth trees that look pale in comparison.
Thomas…it is definitely nice to always be busy and creating. You can always tell a happy woodworker by the sawdust on his teeth…

Greg, this is one of my favorite looks. The carved texture brings a beauty to this wood that it wouldn’t have otherwise. I am learning that shows put a lot of pressure on us to produce. I don’t know yet if that is a good thing.

grizzman…thanks…! we look forward to each and every show and so far they have been good to us.
TheFridge… I know what you mean bout the pecky cypress. I have 2 carved cypress pecky decoys that I would never sell.
Al…you are so right…even though the sinker cypress is an awesome wood there definitely is a unique look that comes out when it is textured. I hope you continue to do some shows because they can really be fun once the bugs are ironed out..if they ever get ironed out… They do put pressure on us to produce but I feel that that pressure promotes creativity and that equals sales…so for me it is a good thing

Do you clean the rot out when you work with pecky Greg? Or do you leave it?
#10 posted 06-03-2014 11:36 PM
Fridge…I would clean the pecky as best as possible but it is not always easy to do. Pecky Cypress is soft and it would damage too easy

Love that sinker cypress! You really brought out the color and beauty with the sculpting/texturing. Does it have a finish on it?
Those decoys are EXTRA cool!

Hey Andy…I haven’t put a finish on it yet…still debating between several options.

Greg, I don’t really know what to say about those decoys beyond that they are Louisiana in a nutshell. I could see that sitting on my mantle or as decoration in a high end house. You just gave me a some great ideas. I just wish I thought about first. How the hell can you follow that? Don’t know. But it’s worth a try. Great work and thank you.
