Short Circuit - Finished!

I finished this one several days ago but with all the work around the place this is the first opportunity I had to photograph it.  Turned out pretty good and I like the larger size.   I used some nylon soaked with super glue for the burnt remains of the fabric.  You can't use cotton with the glue as it becomes brittle and breaks.  Nylon will not do that.

Hope you like him and there are more photos in the Gallery.


  1. His expression is priceless he's saying,"what the he--?" Im sure this one won't last to long at your museum show. I like the larger size too and the painting with the shine on the bottom part of the slicker and him standing in a puddle adds so much interest. Great carving all around.

  2. Those expressive eyes really stand out from the scorched upper body. A great looking piece, and I know he will be most impressive in person with the large size

  3. Lynn,

    This guy is fantastic. I am always amazed and inspired by your ability to take a few pieces of wood and tell a story. Great job!
