P1000772 - final right.jpg

I needed to replace my old commuting bike as I had been riding without brakes for longer than I was willing to tempt fate, and the gears were completely messed up.

So for the last week, I had been riding on the same hardest gear on my bike and comfirmed that I was ready to make the move to a single speed bike. Found the cheapest I could get with disk brakes, which was surprisingly cheap for this type of bike.

I was planning to transform it from a standard easily identifiable factory line bike, to a unique bike that would hopefully turn off bike thieves due to it's uniqueness and therefore more tricky resale and also due to the increased difficulty in identifying which model it is

I hope it works, as it was a lot of hard work getting to the final result !

05_Gouging_the_main_shape_-_small.jpg
Gouging the main shape18 viewsAfter removing as many chamfers as possible, based on the outlined shape, I used gouges to gouges out 'grooves' in the side of the stone, based on the outline. With hindsight, I would have rather not done that, as I realised that some of the gouges were incorrectly placed and caused some headaches once I started carving the swirls.
16d_final_carving.jpg
Final carving (click on the picture to see a larger version)10 viewsAfter 13 sessions of preparation and carving, I have finally finished this piece
The colours are a bit different than when I was carving as I washed the stone after finishing and all the dust that got stuck in the pores of the stone have been cleared
As a result, you can see much more details on the stone now, including the pores and the shells
06_Preparing_the_base_-_small.jpg
Preparing the base21 viewsWhile the top of the stone was still flat, Simon suggested I should carve out the base, as it would be harder once the top section is carved out
09_2ndSession_carving.jpg
Second session carving the shape18 viewsThe carving is starting to take shape now, as I started roughing out the shape on all sides. This is what I should have done in the previous session, but that's how you learn, right?
