Odd request. N/F

Recommended Posts

:rolleyes:

I'm in the process of carving a Turtle [No, not practice for Christmas ]. I've got the shell, legs, scales, claws done,but I'm stumped on the belly portion [ Plastron ].

I've checked Libraries, Carving books,even contacted the ROM, :blahblah1: Nada !!!and its too late in the year to try and find a live one around here.

 

Would any of our Southern Brethren, have any Pic's of the underbelly,or could get one? If you can help, I would really appreciate it.

 

Please e-mail or PM if you can help.......and THANKS in advance! :worthy:

If you're not too fussy I'll see if my friend can get one of one of her red footed toirtes :) Actually they had 8 or 9 turtles at one point, fairly good size too, I'll ask her if she has any photos and let ya know.

 

Seems Roy beat me to it :D

You could also take a trip to a pet shop and bring your camera with you. I'm sure that one of the employees will hold on of the turtles for you to photograph.

Dabluz....Tried the Pet Shop idea earlier,but the ones I tried dont carry Turtles

 

Clausewitz.......... I carve from Basswood mainly, cant afford the exotic woods.

 

Thanks to all for the replies, the turtle is finished now, just waiting for the painting now. THATS going to take a while. Cant paint worth a s***. LOL !!

I've taken to collecting nice pieces of wood where I can. A friend was putting in a hardwood floor that is a type of exotic ironwood that doesnt need stain to give it that beautiful red/brown and I snagged a piece of that.

 

A piece here, and a piece there gives a nice collection. Looking forward to seeing the finished product, have you taken pics along the way to show the process?
