That scroll is way cool ..... good use of that piece of wood ..... I drew a pencil drawing of a scroll that I use on the covers of my trilogy -- seeing yours makes me want to try and carve one!! Very nice work!

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Here is my latest, I call it tavatava overdrive Sali. (Tavatava is what the zig zag motif on Fijian clubs and art is called) I kinda went overboard with the tavatava. There are some originals decorated this way, I think they were used more in ceremony and dance than battle.

Here goes...
















This was a commission piece but the buyer decided not to take it due to financial reasons. So It will go into the marketplace for a few days, if it does not sell there it will go to ebay.

LORD HAVE MERCY!! Just thinking about the time involved in all the intricate detail is MIND BOGGLING!! Just how many hours do you estimate it took to complete that from start to finish, I really need to know! The paddles you've done in the past have blown away all of us and this piece is no different in it's ability to leave us in awe! Truly something we all would be willing to go into battle to have in our own collection!! Amazing workmanship bro!

some day your wife will come home and find you in a corner of your workshop, curled into a fetal position with a tiny chisel in your hand muttering . . .

just one more chip, just one more chip, just one more chip . . .

that's the day they cart you off to the loonie bin. you get a rubber chisel and a lump of clay.

Matt, Thanks man.
Zeta, Thanks.
BigT, Thanks man. That vise makes life a lot easier carving theses clubs.
Seeks, Thanks.
Capn Jack,Thanks.
Kahaka, Thanks. I forgot to contact you after I shipped that last club to you. Hope you got it and like it.
Clarita, Thank You.
Seeks, Therapy in my own twisted way.
Tikimango, Thanks.
Creative Chimp, Thanks.
Westadad, Thanks.
T bird, Thanks. I never really keep track of the time I spend on these? I have done quite a few of these Sali's. If I had to guess 20-25 hours maybe. I started this one about 2 weeks ago and just carve when I feel like it, some times I'll be down there 20-30 min sometimes 3-4 hours.
Grog, Thanks. Got a good one I'm finishing up next
Pdrake, Are you psychic? That happened last week. Only my wife found me in the corner, kicked me in the crotch handed me a Red Bull and said GET TO WORK. Weird.

Awesome, so precise, who ever commissioned this piece is going to think about why they didn't bought it later for a long time.
