Welcome,I really like the clean lines in your sculptures. Would you mind sharing your methodology? Are they completely carved or do you use other tools such as a band saw or lathe?Cheers,

The name Temenos is taken from a Greek word meaning the sacred space surrounding a temple or an altar. Just in case someone wanted to know ;) Those are pretty cool. I too want to know how you made them

Make me as another LJ curious on how they were made. Also, that is better pine than I have had an opportunity to work with.

I REALLY like these but my sarcastic sense of humor wants SO bad to say this is a “boobie prize”! LOL! Sorry I couldn’t pass it up!
On a serious note, if I saw them in a store, I’d buy them all!

Thank you for liking the carvings – it means a lot to me. I use a Ryobi reciprocating carver to rough out the piece from 4×4 stock. I carve a lot so I go through these little power carvers at a rate of about one a year. They are wonderful for working with pine, but they have been discontinued for years and are now getting pretty hard to find. The more careful work is done with small carving knives. The pieces are finished with heat-treated Walnut oil and cabinetmakers wax. Thank you again for saying such nice things.
