Hey guys! I have been working, but not caving. I'm starting another Biz. I have been on vacation for the last 3 years, so I thought it would be fun to get back into it.....I had forgot what it was like to start from scratch. I do have a few unfinished pieces (3 clubs & a tiki) in the carving hut, now i just have to find the time to finish them. I'll post some pics in a bit.

I can Finally ad something to this thread! I started this Maori piece about 6 months ago, and decided it's time to try and finish it up. It's about 23" tall and 11" wide and 2.5" thick, Poplar.

Still a long way to go, But here is what i did today. All i had done before today was cut the shape and started planing down some areas.

Enjoy!



This Dragon toothing is tough, Took some practice and I still don't think I am doing it right?

TMec, Excellent job. There are about only a zillion cuts made in that dragon toothing and it looks like you did them All correctly. Really nice job!

You must have some patience, that is a lot of precise cuts with symmetry in the piece. Was there any inspiration for this piece or did you design it yourself?

Bk, Marcus,Ben, Tama, Matt, Hiltiki,and JP Thanks for the kind words! JP the design came from one of the books I have on Maori carving, I changed it a little here and there. I think I screwed it up about 3 times and had to change it from my original drawings, but that is part of the fun I guess?
