  1. Hey friends! I have just recently sat out into carving a cow skull. I have engraved a skull before and have tried to dabble with full blown carving but I am having trouble with the thickness of cow bone. Does anyone have any advice on how to make short work of the thick bone? How do I go about making fine lines? It seems like only my larger bits are able to cut all the way through the bone and they are not suitable for the intricate designs that I have planned out. I am using a dremel multipro 2 - speed with engraving bits (not sure what kind they are :/ ). Is my Dremel not powerful enough for the task at hand? Are there better bits to be using? A method to soften the bone? HELP PLEASSSSE!
  2. HI guys, I just wanted to show you my latest projects. Forgive the poor photo quality, but I am still working on our photograhy of my projects. Monday night My wife and I had the pleasure of doing a meet and greet, with the heavy metal band Iced Earth. We love their music, and it is only the second time in the last 12 years they have been to Dallas. We had been looking foward to this concert for months. Why I didn't think of it sooner, I don't know but friday I started working on Carvings for the band. I think they turned out pretty well, and the guys from the band really did dig their gifts. There are things I would do different with these, if I had to do them over, but I was really stoked not only to give them their gifts, but by their reactions. The guitar pendant isn't finished in the pic, but I didn't have time to get new pics before the show monday night. The rattlesnake head, and the tribal wolf head are roughly the size of an american quarter. The hammer, and the Mountain man head are about 2 inches tall, and the guitar is roughly 3 inches long. All of these were hung on viking weave knit chains. Troy Seele told me after the concert when I got to talk to him, Freddie Vidales, and Jon Schaffer, "You see this M.F. right here? Iain't taking this F'ing S*&% off my neck..." I'm still stoked. Please let me know what you think. Peace, Rod
