Yet another challenge/giveaway
« on: April 13, 2015, 01:30:07 PM »
This will be the last one this side of summer, as the dog is getting a bit skittish at the sight of plastic.... Can't imagine why....;)

Anyhoot, it's time for you to once again strap on your thinking juices and fill up on your creative caps! (or something like that)

What I had in mind for this one is as simple as cold fusion.
What you have to do is carve a wood-spirit in a match using a machete! :D
(or just carve a wood-spirit into any old piece of wood with whatever knife you wish)

The challenge will end on MAY SOMETHINGth.

Prize this time will be a brand new Hultafors HVK! :)
EDIT TO ADD: There may also be other things joining the HVK...  8)

YOU MAY BEGIN!

.....Now where's that dog run off to?

  Thanks Jon,  this should be a good one,  unfortunately I won't be in this one,  I just can't afford the bandaids,  usually a lot of blood when ever I try to carve anything except a roast or turkey.   ;)

  Seriously,  I wouldn't feel right about getting into another after winning the last one (not that I think I could carve anything that came out looking like something anyone would recognize) .

I would like to give it a go.
Not that I think I will win but if I do I would like you to send it to someone who might need it more then I do.
thank you for the GAW.
What a great day to be outside.

I've never done it either but why not.  Should be interesting to learn something new and a real pleasure to congratulate the winner and host in May.

So how is the winner to be selected? Thanks jontok, good ideer

Matchstick and wood spirit. What the heck I'll give it a shot. Never carved much before but my knives are sharp as all get out now thanks to the folks on here :)

Here is what I got.
First one looks like a Eater island prototype. But what can you do? I just release the sprit in the wood.



this one I watched the vid.
I added a little color with charcoal.

I had a nice time sitting by a fire with a good knife doing this, Thanks.
This is the one I used the most

What a great day to be outside.

With a machete huh?  mmmm......

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

Thanks for the confidence Jontok.... but no...  I wouldn't want to ruin my new mower.  I did however pick up the cleaver with Spirit man in mind.  Its kinda dull...maybe I can carve something with it in CHINA.

Come on guys...  give it a try! :)

Well i had some free time and sadly couldn't find any match sticks, I felt that carving a bic lighter wouldnt have the same effect so i cut some small sticks and tried carving with a machete ..... learned 2 things . 1 i am terrable at carving and should probably practice more and 2 carving a small piece of wood with a big blade is very difficult. Ill try again soon with a small knife and see if it turns out better...  oh yha this is also the only one out of about a dozen that looked any thing like a face...

It doesn't look too bad for a stick. ;)

I'm letting this roll to the end of the month, so you guys still have some time.

A few days late (sorry about that), and the results are in!
I wrote down the name of the competitors (all two of them...Seriously guys? ) on some pieces of paper, put them in a hat and then managed to knock the thing over so that both came out again simultaneously...
Well, the rules are clear so.... CONGRATS Igm and Aulani!!!!

Wow thanks Jontok.

I thought this would have so much competition I would never stand a chance.
Some of you guys need to step up your game. ;)
I stopped by the bank today any they were giving out cotton candy, now this  ; :banana: :banana:
I have never owned a Hultafors  so I am looking forward to checking it out.
