Ooo, very cool! I've been having problems with my Koa so far, it keeps splintering on me and chunks fall out, but it is incredible looking wood. I've got a few scraps from various sources, but there's a store by me that sells it. As long as they have a long enough board, they'll sell it to you by the inch if you just want a chunk off the end.

Thanks everyone. This little guy just developed as I started carving. Benzart gave me a block of the Koa and I will probably use it sparingly. Fortunately Woodcraft and Constantine's carry a great selection of wood - the downside is that it aint cheap. Mooney gave me a piece of Albeeza(sp?) that I want to try next. I still need to finish the Trio before Hukilau. Its hard to believe its less than a month away.

Here are some little guys that I have been working on for Hukilau. Carved in Koa and Walnut. Two different techniques using Squares and Rounds. More of these to come.

A.S. you're on fire! These guys are great!

There's going to be some really great stuff for sale at this Hukilau, I think attendees will go home with big smiles and lots of new tikis!

Great work! How you get such detail in small pieces is a real talent. I did go to the link for the sanding stars but nothing was listed under that name. Another hint please? Thanks. Can't wait for your next piece.

Thanks for all the praise. Just doin what I do.

LS - if I'm still on fire you can pour a drink on me at Hukilau.

TB - that guy was rescued from "the box" in my workbench.

LLT - there are so many responses: being on the beach, a warm summer night and you fondling my wood...

TL - these are the ones that I bought at Woodcraft. Cheaper, but not quite the quality that Benzart promotes (?)
http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?familyid=266 I like the 320 for finish sanding. 150 grit takes too much off for the little guys

Mooney - Just trying to keep up with YOU. Damn - slow down. In case some of you don't know, Mooney and I will sharing a table at Hukilau. I don't have a lot of stuff, but between the two of us we should have some really cool stuff for sale.

SS - famous? I will be available during Hukilau for autographs and photos.

Here's an update on the Trio - these have come to a slow crawl towards the finish. They are very close - unfortunately they won't be done before Hukilau. My schedule is slammed up to the event so I won't have much time to work on them. The good part is that I'm going camping in the Keys this weekend with my 2 girls and a bunch of my friends! Sun, rum and plenty of fun!!
