Oasis was big bummer, but its not the bosses fault (in fact, he's a loyal client and has bought several pieces). I'm in the magazine business and deadlines rule.

On a better note - went to the Carving Jam at Chip & Andy's on Saturday and had a blast. Carving with the SFL ohana was a fun. Past on some info and tried my hand at some new stuff. First up is a photo of my current/on-going project. Its a 4' piece of Mahogany that I have been taking my time with. No plan just diving in every now and then - he's starting to take shape but has a long way to go. Still a lot of wood to remove - almost all done with chisels.


Next up was my first flirtation with bone. Having Benz and Mango there to give guidance helped a lot. I knocked this out pretty quickly and then passed it off to Benz who cleaned up some of my cuts and finished it off. Benz gave me a lesson on how to do the 4-string weaving, so I proceeded to braid a 3-string rope. I wasn't feeling up to the challenge of completing this one with the extra string - weak! The string took me longer than carving the tiki! Happy to say that our hostess was the recipient of my first bone!


I left the Jam with lots of wood and bone. Passed along some deer antler. Milled a piece of wood for a future project. And had a fabulous time. Thanks again C&A.

That's a great price. Good turning stock! My wife would kill me if I purchased any wood - the home wood pile needs to be reduced first. I'm working on it!!

No problem Mooney. Sounds like you had a good time. I'm just jealous that you got some good surf and I have to settle for wind-blown chop - which I got some today!! First surf in a few months down here. That piece of Walnut sounds nice. Keep us up to date.

Thanks for Bump, Mooney. This saturday I went up to Sebastian to get some of the swell from Bill. It was amazing Ft. Pierce and Stuart had surf but everywhere south of that had nothing. So on the way back I blew off meeting up with Mooney and I wish I didn't. I was totally wiped out from surfing all day and the wife wanted me home - that my excuse. The reason I wanted to hook up with Mooney was to show him the piece below. This is something I have owed him for a while. Surfboard Ku carved in Walnut, 16" tall. He's about half way done.



I have been keeping busy carving. Need more motivation to take pictures. I'll focus on that this week - in between carving.

Great looking carves AlohaStation. Cool to see a long board for once. I'm glad you finally got some good waves from Bill, even if you had to come all the way up to Sebastian.

You sure pick some hard woods to carve. The surfer looks great.

Living in the shadow of the Bahamas is tough when you surf. Maybe another upcoast session this weekend. Since staring the Walnut Ku I have dove into another verion that is slightly larger. Pics soon.

Poobah - I feel I've become ruined. Since carving the hard woods I have "tried" going back and carving palm several times. The palm trees I have access to, have not been very cooperative - stringy, soft and can not hold detail. Now I prefer carving the harder woods but I have to be careful because I have wood allergies, so nothing too exotic. The Walnut is slightly softer than Koa (which is a common carving wood in the islands and causes a reaction on me). Plus Mahogany grows naturally in SFL so there is plenty all around. Look around your area and talk to local carvers - you will find that no matter where you live, there is good carving stock all around.
