Skull in Red Oak Wall Plaque standing 15 inch Tall & 12 inch wide.
Just done this for no good reason but to gain experience with a wider range of tools.
Bit of improvised chisel work with a growing range of rotory burrs.
Edges finished off with a palm router along with a rear keyhole slot hanger.
Drenched in Tung Oil and finished with Lemon Oil.
Thanks for checking out my project
Regards Bazz West London UK.

Wow Bazz, that is really nice. I didn’t know you did carving as well. So are you going to move into the mountains and be a hermit or for health reasons? Health reasons is why we moved to Hawaii years ago.

So sorry to hear you lost your Father. Did it live close or far from you? Will you have a larger area for your shop? I tried some carving many years ago, but found other items I like to work with more and gave it up.

I live 23 miles west of London City and I will be moving 250 miles north to Liverpool around 7 miles from the coast.
My place in your terms is a $500,000 USD That buys you the tiniest 2 bedroom mid Terraced starter home with a yard just 30 feet long. no drive no garage no land no view ! with severe parking problems. in my yard I have a timber shed 8 feet wide 8 feet deep 8 feet tall. Period. I will soon have twice the space with a small single car garage that will be my workshop at around half the price of this. This will take me from huge debt to a fully paid off home. Do a bit of woodwork …Happy Days.

- XquietflyX

Hi XquietflyX Well the most difficult part was I had no idea if I could do anything at all like it !
So like everything I do its a challenge ! My process is I have some hobby tools I pick out nice interesting Figured timbers that inspire me then wonder what the hell I could do with it all. I often have something in my mind for several weeks wondering about it then get stuck in. So most of my challenges are Zone in for 3 weeks then most projects are wrapped up in 3 hours…. I suppose one issue is trying to get definition in depth. its seems most people use soft Basswood/Tulipwood.. I am determined to only use heavy figured beautiful timbers. I think its all a lot of effort so if you are going to put valuable time in then it must be a quality resource to start with. I want my art to be kicking around in 500 years… This by the way is a typical Tattoo design I have copied or interpreted from google images. Hopfully next time I try it will be better each time. Regards Barry UK & Good Luck for 2017.

Wow Barry, the home prices where you live are pretty high aren’t they. To give you an price difference, we live on 3 acres of land, have a 22’X52’ metal building we have taken 1/2 of to make a living quarters; a new home we are trying to finish and move into. I have a 20’X40’ shop (ans still don’t have enough room); plenty of room for the dogs, cats and chickens we raise as well, and I would say the value is about what yours is worth. Hawaii has some of the highest prices in the US, but the Island we live on (Hawaii Island or Big Island) does have area’s where the price for land is still affordable.

As they say here Welcome to Ripoff England.
Low income High Taxs . Our tax system is outright criminal. You get punished here in success where I think in the US you get rewarded for your hard work.
I pledged my allegence to the stars and stripes in Dade County Florida 25 years ago. Should have stayed there. Love the USA. Respect !
