Benz and Clarita - Thanks for the support. It was a fun project.

My foray back into bone was a good time. My last run of bonz was in like 1990. Anyway, what I wanted to do was have a box frame filled with pieces that I liked and that I new I would never buy for myself. I sold some along the way and another is out on loan right now (he will be added to the box frame soon), but here is the box frame as it sits. It should make a nice addition to my study along with the other large Maori warriors/Cook Island pieces I have made.

Right now I am heading out to brush the bone dust off the saw and have a few words with it. It has been singing to me over in the corner of the garage for many weeks now. I'll get out my chicken foot on a string, sprinkle some magic herbs in a circle around my kevlar, and speak the magic words. Hopefully the VooDoo Saw will rise up and help me create wonderful things again.

Oh yeah, here are the pics of the bone carving display for my study....





I hopee you likee!

-Gman

What a great collection GMan, you should be very proud of your lastest digs into bone.
And now, The conga is stoked about the GMan returning to the saw/wood. Any ideas in
your head, or are you just gonna let the saw lead the way?

WOW, these are amazing!! That's an incredible accomplishment. I bet you're so proud! I really love the bottom one second from the left. I think it would look perfect hanging around my neck! Oh, and my son is going crazy over that shark right next to it. If you have any extra's lying around let me know! I want to be on the list!

Conga, Finky, Zaya, Tama, Benz, Tikigap, and Kings,

Thank you for the kind words about the bonz. They were fun, but you know I like to go big and rip wood with the saw. Yeah Tama, big is my thing, and the saw is my scalpel (I guess you've never read my thread?! ). I love to run saws and make them do things they were not made to do.

Anyway, I dusted off the kevlar and gave my saw a good once over. It was sound as a pound. I switched out my work chain for my carving chain and gave it a nice hand sharpening and a brush of oil. I could feel the love....

I had the master plan in my saw box (see first picture below ) and a 2 year cured cedar log with branch bumps in all the convenient places. How could I lose?

Anyway, here is the rough out of my new tekoteko. He is somewhere around 45" or 50" tall. He'll be one sided (right side) with a finished "front" and "back" end. I took pics as I went and the last pic is as he sits now. He will get much cooler as I get into him, but I'm sure you can see where I'm going.

















I hope you like him....and thanks for looking!

-Gman

OH yeeahh! The man with the saw is back in town! I see where you are going and I like it. The shadow box with all your bone playing distractions looks pretty freaking great. You better show that off like a proud parent!

JohnnyP and Benz,

Yeah, it felt great to get back to working big and using the saw. I think I got a real good form with this guy and I plan on giving him the full treatment. Hopefully he will really be styling when he is completed. I imagine he will take me a few months to finish, but I'm going to really enjoy him. I hope you enjoy watching.

-Gman
