|Mikey cutting planes with an angle grinder|
I am currently working on cutting the shape down into a half-octagon of planes. These planes will then be cut again smaller and smaller until the edges can be rounded and a half circle is formed.
|This is my stone. still in the first stages of the rounding process|
|Nick's stone has been rounded and chamfered on one edge.|
|Michael has finished the rounding as well and his stone has been turned upwards in its proper position.|
My work on my sculpture has been slow but steady. I had to stop for awhile to workout a design error but am back in business. Its tricky and careful carving, and I wonder if I bit off more than I can chew with an objects as intricate and as complex as a skull. Regardless I am working furiously and spending some late nights in the shop hoping to get it done on time.

|As far as I've got so far.|
