Here something that I haven't done in a while. This was a commission that I cranked out just a bit faster than I would have liked. I think I will do a few more pens in the near future - starting to figure out the techniques to get them REALLY nice.

Woah Aloha, Where did THIS Guy come from, Just Outta the Blue? I was beginning to think you had Forgotten how to do the Pens, Just when you were becoming the Pen-Master! However I'm Happy to see you proved me wrong and if this new one is any indication the next few will actually make us go Blind and Dry!

Thanks for all of the replies. Its been a while since I've updated - sorry. The small stuff just keeps on comin. Here's some of the stuff I've been doing here and there.



The summer here is brutally hot and spending more than an hour in the garage is tough. So the small stuff has kept me occupied. These are going to be presented in the Marketplace. I just got back from O-town for Halloween Horror Nights with a group of friends! Still feeling the after-effects. I love getting the crap scared out of me and my wife likes the gore. More to come

Aloha, Those are sweeet! I really like the original large one in the middle and the one on the right has some great detail. Keep up the great work.

Hey, those New guys are really looking great, my fav is on the far right. I agree about the hot Garages in this summer heat, it's Brutal and difficult to endure for very long.. I hope you have been catching some of the surf that has been around awhile. (guess it's gone now tho)C'mon up one day!

Thanks for the replies. My favorite is the one on the far right as well. These all got started from being scraps left over from the pen. Its amazing how quickly I can knock these small guys out. I have really been trying to focus on getting the Trio finished before starting anything new. They are getting closer, but everytime I picke them up there is something else I want to do. Its hard enough for me to finish one piece at a time - try 3!! Especially when I have a nice chunk of Coconut and more rootball logs than you can shake a chisel at, waiting for me!!

Yes Benz - I do owe you a visit but time is not my friend at the moment. I'll be in touch.
