Hi there you fuzzy little man peach.
Okay, hey guys welcome back thank you for stopping by and checking out what I'm making today
Oh and also this video is sponsored by Audible
*Winks and clicks tongue*
What we're going to do today is this is actually and I'm not kidding
This is a chunk from the White Cliffs of Dover
If you're not familiar with them
They're these gigantic chalk and pure white cliffs on the edge of the ocean
in the UK and I picked this up on the shore.
Let's uh, let's take a quick break. And--um
Here's a little behind-the-scenes of me finding the rock.
*Tries--and fails--to eat the rock*
*What did I say?*
It's like still super salty
*Relaxing ocean sounds*
The White Cliffs of Dover
Yes, I really want to get up there.
*More ocean noises*
I wanna get up there bad. This place is amazing. Look at it, will you just look at it?
Will you just look at that cliff? Look at that
*Wind and ocean*
Look at that. (ﾉ≧∀≦)ﾉ
*Giggles like a little girl*
I did it. First gonna billy goat jump. Billy goat jump. Oh my gosh
Look at that huh, look at this contrast
That is so incredible.
Ew! ლ(ಠ_ಠლ) Except for that
That's--uhh, don't look at that
*Calm piano music*
*It's really relaxing*
*Footsteps with the piano*
*Insert the ocean*
*The ocean is so relaxing.*
*Don't you agree?*
*Jumpcuts to Bobby running*
"Is dis a good rock?"
*Lost Boi again*
"What about dis one?"
I don't know why I like this so much. It's just--
*Walkin' on rocks*
Just a pure white rock.
*I like it, too!*
*Cheering* ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆
I made it! I'm alive!°˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
I think they're glad that I didn't die.
I kinda got a little off the beaten path, if you know what I mean.
Do you know what I mean?
I think you do :L
Okay, now that you saw all that let's get to carving. Come with me down here.
*That sounded creepy*
Okay, here's our little rock. And this is the design I came up with. Not sure what it is.
It kind of looks like robot wings mixed with a flower mixed with something
Not sure. Anyways, the way I did that was
1) Take a piece of paper.
2) You fold it in half.
3) You draw your design on one (1) side.
4) Refold it back on itself.
5) Rub it with something hard ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) so that the
graphite transfers on to the other side and then just fill it in with pen.
That is where we get this. It's pretty cool. I like this design
It'll be challenging
First thing I gonna do is take this over to my trusty belt sander of course
Basically turn it into more that shape because you can see it's got a little bit of a
little lumpiness to it, you know like that little nipple *wot* right there gonna grind that off.
See what we can do with this specimen
*iNtEnSe RoCk MuSiC
*pause sometime in this. you won't regret it*
Actually, you know what let's take this outside so we don't get dust in my shop
*What sounds similar to a yawn but isn't a yawn* Oh shot!
*REEEEEEEEEE goes the belt sander.*
*Good music plays as he sands the rock*
*I'm gonna eat*
Holy guacamole, this stuff carves way faster than I was expecting.
I don't know if that's gonna be a bad thing.
I guess we'll find out. I honestly think the belt sander is a little too aggressive
*BORK BORK BORK*
So what I'm gonna do now is just take this little guy right here, hand sand it, get it nice and smooth
Transfer the design and then carve it up
*Doesn't sound like a serial killer*
Okay, okay bye
*I'm gonna go get something to drink.*
*Be right back to captioning*
*'Sup, my dudes. I'm back.*
Did I mention this stuff is kinda dusty? Good grief.
I'm having a dilemma
I need to transfer that onto there.
I'm gonna try using some tattoo design transfer paper
I'm not even sure what it's made of. *Carbon-based ink?*
It's got some kind of water transferable ink
that when you draw on it
It transfers it on to the piece of paper
and then you can lay that over something
get the - the paper wet and it transfers the design so
I'm just gonna try it. So let's - let's just give it a shot.
*I actually used this before.*
*The caption writer.*
*Er... one of them*
*It was an art project in 8th grade.*
*It was awful, but it still got an award.*
*Here, Bobby is transferring the ink onto the egg-shaped rock*
*Ayy it worked!
*Ink it over*
Okie-dokie the design is now drawn on to the rock and
I am still not sure how I'm going to carve this because
It is ludicrously soft.
The thing I'm gonna try first is my little dremel
Actually it's a Fordham.
Anyways with this little diamond disc doohickey. I'm gonna come back and try to put in some of those lines
Most of this is going to be carved with probably a scalpel because it's so soft
Carving with the power tools I think will be too much and I'll have way more opportunity to break something
So let's give it a shot.
So und mein kleine kin it is a wonderful day in the neighborhood, ja?
Now let us commence the montage
*I haven't slept in days.*
*Relaxing tool work*
"OOF! Oh, hello!"
"Please go now."
*Back to the tools*
*There's nothing to write here.*
*It's literally 1 minute and 22.1 seconds of music and tool work*
*Still relaxing though*
*The "wings" are looking good, Duke-y!*
*Are they wings?*
*They remind me of wings.*
*Back to carvin'*
Okay, this is where we have it at the moment.
Really, none of this is difficult to do.
So first, you saw me draw out the little lines
and then I just am coming back
carving up to the lines.
and then for these little petal things, this is just like a sharpened piece of metal
and follow the lines carving out the outline and now I'm coming back with my scalpel
it's just an X-acto knife
scooping this part out a little bit
Just scooping it out like that
*Blows out candles*
However, it wants to be scooped out put in happy little scoops.
So I'm just coming back in and
Taking away the material on the backside like this
So it reveals -or- and now that is in relief
and you see this side I've done most of those
but that's how I did it.
Once you break down each step into its components
No carving is difficult. It just may look difficult or complicated.
Let's uh, let's get back to carving. What do you say?
*Sorry, that was inappropriate*
And now another deep thoughts with Dukey
Today I've been thinking a lot about
Following your dreams
Up until recently, I was a truck driver
that was gone for my family. I was miserable at doing it
I mean, it's a great job
but I felt like I was meant to do something more.
To use the talents that I was given to better the world in some way.
I knew I wanted to be an artist
I knew I wanted to inspire people. I just worked really hard at it
I just decided to make YouTube a priority
and kept posting videos kept putting out content
It may not have been on any kind of a schedule. It still really isn't.
but I never gave up on it
And that's what I'm really getting at
is don't give up on your dreams,
even though they may seem far-fetched
I mean be realistic and always have a back-up plan
in case that falls through but don't
don't give up on the things that give you joy and
and help you express yourself
You know, I didn't give up on my dream and now I mean, I'm- it's incredible
It's incredible how big and how fast this channel has gotten and how much
love I get from you guys. It's incredible.
I love all of you.
All over 1.5 million of you.
It just blows my mind every time I think about it.
I don't know. I'm just so grateful.
I'm grateful and you guys made it happen. You literally all gave me
Which was to be able to do something like this as a job. So,
I love you guys.
