Thanks for the props. I'm still bursting, just not taking any pictures! Started on the second half of the wet log. Some thing a bit more traditional. Iam looking froward to having several days this weekend to carve! The weather is perfect!!

Small Stuff 3 opened at the Bear and Bird gallery on Sunday and I made way over for the opening brunch. A lot of really good stuff that was a wide range of subjects and mediums. Check out the online show and try guessing what I did:

Conga - its too small for a fork, but I had the same thought. Hmmmmmmmmm....

BigT - Thanks for confirming that I need more practice with the bone. Its supposed to be a mahi-mahi (a.k.a. dorado, dolphin).



LOL! Oops. Well, you got the attitude part right. Actually, I should have noticed - whales don't have fins on their back.....

I have many pieces that have been laying around that I start and move on. Many of them are Moais - an easy carve that doesn't take too much time. Many of these just needed a alittle attention to finish them up. Here are two..

Cypress - 15"


Palm - 25"


The third was part of my recent "burst". Carved in Cypress - 12".



Thanks for the catch! fixed

Moais muy machos! Tom is the top one really palm? Looks like more woodgrain than I've seen in palm wood before. Not calling you a liar, just curious

Seeks - I would love to see you do one. Moais are deceptively complicated. Controlling depth and angles throughout is tough. Especially to someone that refines each cut like you do. My cuts are quick and rarely refined - its a matter of my impatience. Get on it!!

They must look so awesome standing in your garden like that. Cypress? Never carved that wood but you REALLY make it work for your Moai.

Aloha!

Aloha station, your small army of Moai's are very soothing for me.
Nice to hear you got off the pot to finish 'em.
I have a pile of logs curing right now, that I will be doing the same thing with !!!

I have the same problem. Just been busy, busy, busy.
But I did manage to bust one out this year. ( just recently)
