Okay, primarily for LC so she can see what a difference her help has made. I didn't get to finish it as I had to call it quits at midnight.

    YEAH Baby!!! Great going Bruce!! No credit to me man....this is all YOUR talent!!! ;) Pics look fantastic!!! Don't use the thai laquered knife except for soft flesh work...
    Keep it up! You are doing great things! :)

    That's terrific work! I'm curious, how long does that take?
  • Thanks all. It's fun learning new things and I look forward to the next stage.

    LC, I'm being a good boy, that laquered knife only gets used after shaving off the outer skin. I did a sweet potato a couple of nights ago it was kind of neet working with something that firm but it was a lot more work.

    Gandolf, this one took me a little over an hour and a half. Please keep in mind this is my 6th or 7th attempt and I'm still having to think through each cut so I'm pretty slow. Pros like LC can do them much faster.

    Have a great day all,

    Bruce

    how is this egg related? .....looks like OT to me, IMHO
  • lol, leave it to a sooner. Did you read the subject line? Did it catch you by surprise after reading it that there were pictures of fruit?

    Dang dude that looks incredible! I thought about giving it a try but remembered my lack of artistic talent. -RP

    Wow, that's amazing. That thing would rot into a puddle before I could get my initials carved in it :laugh: :laugh:
