I guess you are thinking of your trip to Hawaii and that gave you an extra something? i don't know, what ever it was, keep that up, because it's amazing! please take a lot of pics if you can, for the poor sister here in the south that probably will never go there, please?... anyway ,impressive tang sir!




Oh girl, you are too kind! And, um, yeah, I'm quite obsessed with Hawaii right now!! Can't wait can't wait can't wait...it's going to be tiki-riffic! I will definitely post a pic or two for you...or I can email, oh, say a thousand + photos if you like! hee he.
Well if you can't go to Hawaii, I'll just have to take you someday!!

Thanks Big T and Tik G, and big Benzerino ( sorry Ben, I like tweeking your name!)
It was just a light semi gloss poly coat over a stain. Oh, Tiki G, I did do a surfintiki one a while back, go back to page 19 for a glimpse.
Aloha

Thanks Keigs! Mahalo.

Well, playin with a little hook, and tried drilling a hole, and BOOP! Broke in half.
Sooo, super glue it? Cut it in half and make it a wooden/bone combo?
Is super glue do-able?

Sorry to see that. Super Glue will work, but you'll always notice a hairline crack, but it will be just as strong as usual. I've never tried the wood/bone hooks, but it would be the right thing to do I think.

Idus Martiae, or Beware the Ides of March. You get to join the club with Benzart and me, and broken art. April is just around the corner.

Superglue does work well on bone, and the crack won't show at all if you cover it with a cord lashing.

Thanks guys, went with the super glue...I'm saving the wood/bone combo for another time.
Not too shabby.

...With congas ribs I thought you had broken one of your bones! sorry about to hook.
and about the trips to hawaii, haha, thanks very nice of you, but you don't have to bribe me for me to say those last two carving were extra inspired and great, I really really think so, trust me

Dam on the broken bone. Looks ok on the fix? You like stone bone or wood best or dont
care?

Not much surf this winter. Im looking forward to getting back in the surf groove
soon. Looks like you had some crazy weather this winter? Did you say you where moving
soon?

Ahhhh to live HERE!!

Hey surfin,
Nice pics from Hawaii.
Beach, surf shop and cafe, what more do we need except some carving tools and a log!
Mahalo's,
Pat
