Steff Rocknak's Runner in progress (summer/fall 2004): page two

In the next four photos, I am only using the angle grinder (I would lay the leg flat on the sawhorses when working with this machine)

Coming in with the chisel now. I decide to carve the shoe last, so I can stand this piece up as long as possible--to both work on it and look at it. The wood is different colors because as I proceed, I am coating it with linseed oil and turpentine. This slowed the checking down somewhat, but be sure to have plenty of ventilation, particularly you migraine people.

See page one of this piece in progress or page three or page four or page five or page six or page seven .
