Thanks for the kind words...


Lucky Dawg... Good Boy!!! Don't ya' just love the beach?!!!
anyway, just tryin' to spice things up on an otherwise quiet corner of the board...
my vise vice gets me through the dark DAZE of winter and, since I've got a handle on
the L.C.A.'s and my camera, I figured it was time to share some ideas and images...



Unless there's a BLIZZARD, I'll be at the 2013 Marlboro & Somerset FF Shows...

Lightbulb 'another phlight of phancy... 'tubular adaptation...

I was playin' around with a phuzzie notion phocused on the upcoming Spring Squid Convention...


when I got side-tracked by a tubular quasi Intruder idea...

'nice colors and texture but it didn't work for me...

'experienced a profound revelation moment...
'joined them together and Bada Bing... Bada Boom...
a kind'a Jurassic Squidasarus... or Squiduendo... or ???...

'left some extra tube on the schnozola so that I can still add a cone-head if this makes it all the way to Bishop's Shoal in a few months...
The tubular notion can open up some curious doors...

Lightbulb acrylic 'surph kandy...

The last time I used epoxy was about a year ago to fix a neighbor's wobbly kitchen chair...
If you're "production" tying and turning out a gazillion simple pattern, less costly epoxy and a turning wheel still have their place...
but I digress......
all L.C.A.'s [light cured acrylic] = MAJIC ! [P.F.M.]
'Personally, I prefer Bug-Bond Original Formula with the applicator Pro Tip...
In any case, I've found it best to build up the body in stages and "cure as you go"...
Once the material and eyez are encapsulated, the final shape will evolve to match what I had in mind to start with...
note: a rotary vise is THE way to go... otherwise, good luck...
