Very sweeeet! Fine tech on the war club and Fan Handle? guy. I really like the way you are wing'n it on the design of the Maori figure. Your wing'n it would be about two weeks of hard design work. How long is the War Club and what type of wood are you using to get such nice fine detail? Keep up the wing'n it and can't wait to see it when your done.

4WD, I shipped the last two there, So I have no pics of them on the doors yet?

Tahitiki, Thanks. It's a slow process but that's what I like about it.

Lake, I'll bring him with.

Watango, Gald you stopped by. I'm a new fan of yours for sure. Thanks again.

TheBigT, However you want to word it...Thanks!

Tikilizard, Thanks. The Sali's are about 30" or so? there all a little different. My wood of choice these days is Poplar. I have carved a few different hard woods but like the Poplar not only for the price, but it carves nice and holds detail great.


I took the camera out to the shed with me today and grabbed a few shots as I was carving.
This was about 3 hours work today. From Sketch to finishing this one part.

This circle is about 4" x 4".

I sketch the area first, then start the line work,



Line work done,



Starting the Dragon toothing.



Finished that string,



And finished, (crappy pics, sorry)




There is still a little touch up here and there but for the most part that part is done.

Patience of a saint, Andy.

Beautiful work.

Hey, I have some pages that good 'ol Octane sent me years ago regarding Dragon
toothing and some other Maori carving techniques.

I'll make some copies and bring them out with me.

See ya Sunday!

Precise carve! congrat and thank's for sharing your handcraft and your art. Your work demonstrated the patience of a monk doing work ant, like the illuminator of the 15th century.

Perfection, you must get into some zone to carve like that.

It was a pleasure to see this and all your other work in person on Sunday, Andy.

And great having you as vending neighbor!

Amazing detail and dedication to your work.

Here's a couple shots of those great clubs you did for Trader Vic's LA...





See you in August!
