Barra-boy puppet production

Ive been busy carving many small scale puppets over the last few weeks as well as passing on some skills to younger generations during the school holidays...
But one personal project has been moving along nicely...the barra-boy!

This huge fish is nearly completed with only painting and mounting to go. He was carved in salvaged rosewood using the Arbortech Powerchisel for 99%of the work. My initial aim was to produce a puppet carved purely with the Powerchisel...but the unpredictable nature of the salvaged wood forced me to use an angle grinder sanding disc.
I figured i should post the production process thus far.
"maddog leather" is used as the flexible body strip.
