80. Peach Pit Skull

Peach Pit Carved with Dremel Tool. My grandfather used to carve peach pits so I did this one is in honor of him.

UPDATE: Per request, here's an additional view (in my hand for scale)...

Just peachy!

Sweet! I really like this one! Could it be possible to see it from a few different angles?

Thanks! He's just carved on one side, but I've added a more straight forward side view, I hope that helps!

I think this is one of the coolest skulls you've done.

Hey, I found you via POP Candy. Love the sheet in the hotel room, but I gotta say that would freak me out! I also have a skull in my own blog header by coincidence. (small though) Anyway, this is a cool idea & very creative.

That's a nice tribute to your Grandfather.

That's very sweet! (no pun intended.. or maybe just a little one)

I like how the natural ridge of the peach pit looks like brains, like the top of the skull has been cracked and his brain is all exposed! :D

Love this one!

Hey, thanks for the trade at art-o-mat, I wore the United Skulls tee twice this week ;)

could you describe how you did it? do you put it in a vice? what kind? and which attachment of the dremel?
with thanks, it's dynamite, and an old appalachian folk craft my father's farm hand (!), jake blankenship, from the mountains around salem, VA, taught him to do in the 1920s.

I just held it down on a work surface with my hand and used a variety of different small diamond coated bits. Mostly I just experimented and discovered what worked best.
