Damn that stuff is good. Look back at your carvings and that latest one and look at how you have progressed! Damn dude, where you gonna be at in 4 carvings time? 20 carvings time?

That last piece is absolutely beautiful! The quality of the carving and the design itself are both top notch.

I expect there is already a waiting list for those babies - and so there should be! I agree with everyone else - sell them.

Finkdaddy, your design skills are great! I really like the small stuff. How's your computer art going?




Thanks again everyone. I like doing the small stuff. I tried doing some bigger ones, but I think I'm too impatient or something. When the weather warms up here (don't say a word Benzart! ) I'm going to try again outside.

As far as the computer stuff goes, I got some new software recently that will make my other ones look like a kids coloring book. I just bought a nice new fully loaded computer too, but some of you know about all of the problems I've had with it, so it will be a little bit for those. Plus I'm busy trying to start a new business, so there's very little in the way of free time.

Thanks everyone for showing interest in my work. It means a lot.

I still have to do a clear coat, but basically it's finished. Our friend Hewey has laid claim to this one, but there are many more to come. I'm gonna buy some dremel tools for the next one!

My computer should arrive today, so I'm going to give another picture a try I think.

Thanks all, especially Hewey!

That just blows me away. Beautiful finish... you'd never know it's so small from the pix alone.

Thanks guys. I suppose I should have mentioned again that it's about 2 1/2 inches tall. There really isn't any list, so if you want to just PM me the next one would go out to whoever contacts me first. I'm very flattered that people have been asking me for them. It feels really wierd.

Mahalo!

FinkDaddy, this is really an Excellent tiki pendant. I Love the big, bold detail that all says TIKI. It looks much larger than it really is. Well done. One good thing about these small ones is you can do more of them quicker, so More More More.

Is that a 2-tone finish on the teeth. Either way it looks sweet.

Here is the first attempt at art with my new computer. Forgive the primative canoe, the next ones will be a lot more detailed.



Hewey, I forgot to tell you your pendant is on its way.
