Benzo - Heya! Nice to see ya 'round...

Seeks - All proper figure carvings have cracks in their asses.

Robin - Yup, JohnnyP makes sweet stuff.

Camo - Hey mang. Hopefully no more shelves...

Today I tried a piece of the green stuff. He needs a buncha clean-up if I want him to be purdy.

Pretty, better watch those fingers though, he looks hungry! Love it GMAN even if it isn't all shiny yet! Just something you did in your spare time?

Thanks for showing him!

Looks like most of the hard work is done to me. Slow it down now, work those planes and it's a downhill run to the finish line.
But where is the foot?

Tikisgrl - Thanks for looking. Yeah, he's hungry...he bit me yesterday.

Tfreak - Nope, not moving to jade. I got an itch and just wanted to try something new and different. I'll leave the jade jewelry work to those professional NZ stoners. I'm more geared up for bonz anyway.

Seeks - Yeah, Gman doesn't play basketball. Most team sports bore the $hit out of me.

Paipo - Is the hard work done or is it just beginning? To me, the hard part is just starting and the easy part is over. I've got neither the toolz or the patience to move him too much further this week. I'm sure I'll pick at him another time.....

Excellent start GMANG, you say No more for now but just wait 'till you find out all the other stuff you can carve in jade. Bring it ON!

Well all righty then! Pretty impressive there G. You talented types just keep me in awe of all the materials and methods you use in your creations. Very nice Hei-Tiki.

Benz and Robin - Nice jade hack-job aye? My hat is off to Tama and Paipo...working in the green is not too easy.

Today I got a box from my friend Alientiki out in Maui. Inside was the Cannibal Hunter! Ohhhhh, Gman likee this one. Here's some pics of it with my other Alien piece, the Brady Tiki Pendant. I love this guy's work and I am happy to have two of his pieces here.

I also came across a display stand that I can use for my Stick Ki'i carving. He's been a bugger to have out as he can't stand....now he can....Happy Happy!

Wow Gman the jade is looking nice. You are quite the renaissance man. Hunter, carver, government agent, and now stone carvering? Great work man!!!

Seeksurf... I wish I could say I gave the Tiki to GMAN but he is much more generous than I. He purchased the Tiki as all gifted Tikis must first be approved by my boss. She cracks the whip and doesn't let me take much breaks. She'd have me carving night and day If it wasn't for noise ordinance.

I'm so stoked that the Cannibal Hunter has taken a place of honor amongst such fine carvings there in the man room.

Seeks - Yes, Santa has been good to me this year. Seems like there has been a new box showing up here every couple of days. Happy Happy!

Alien - Yes, he will always have a place of honor here in the Manroom. I'm sure he will get moved from here to there...and then back again, as I am always moving things around to change things up. Renaissance man? Hmmmm.

GMan, great pics of the "Manroom Shelf." The Cannibal looks super, fits right
in with the other museum pieces. Hey, how about the guy in the upper right
corner of the shelf, are you gonna leave him unfinished? Actually, a really
like the minimalist look but I'm sure you will blow us away when the mood
hits you.
