Steve,

 

I'm always amazed by your 'rock' backgrounds.

I think your 'rock sculpting' gets better with each project.

Looks good.  You have spent a lot of time on this, it seems.  Looking forward to the finished project.  With the low ceiling, you might have to resort to a side-arm cast. ^_^

You might be an aquarium/fish nerd when the answer to the question of "what are you doing tonight" is...."Oh not much, just building a stalactite/stalagmite for my tank"..lol

Yep, my favorite TV series ever. Been a couple years since I watched it all the way through so started re-watching the entire series again while I work.

Have you been watching the spin off ? (Better Call Saul). It's not on par with the drama/action of Breaking Bad but it's pretty decent.

I watched the first couple of them and was getting into it, but life got in the way. I'll binge watch on Netflix when work gets slow. Lol

The entire first season of Better call Saul was a bit slow moving, second season started to pick up a bit better pace though. Worth catching up on when ya get time, third season starts sometime this month now.

stalactite/stalagmite

I thought they died out in the late Jurassic period. :P  BTW, that one picture does look like a T. rex foot.

Took just a tick under 50hrs of carving but finally all the carving and texturing is thankfully done. Next step I get to look forward to is probably another 20 hours of dryloking/painting/sealing. Probably take a break from it for a few days at least though before starting that stage.
