    hey guys, <br>i had some free time again, thank god, so i grabbed one of my big naturals and chose a design.<br>i've chosen a moorhammer, a little smaller than the original(my hands aren't that big)<br>i've cut the basic shape with a saw and it is drying on the fireplace. so far i've spotted two minor cracks but nothing that can't be fixed or that'll create a dangerous situation.<br>pics'll follow soon, for some reason i can't copy the link on my phone, so stay tuned!<br><br><img src="http://i77.servimg.com/u/f77/17/31/63/59/2013-013.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>edit: this is the best i can do from here: <a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=218&u=17316359" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=218&u=17316359</a>

    Nice one! Im also trying to make a natural Hammerhead but so far it's proving a wee bit tricky! How do you go about making these? So far I just did some terrible rough cuts and I guess rasping is next...you look like you got this stuff down, so help would be appreciated! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    this one took me about to afternoons, so 15.00 to 18.00, about 6 hours total. i do as much as i possabilly can with a knife and saw, i find it faster than rasping
