You gotta be proud of that one. The toes are a neat twist.

Hey all,

Thanks for the positive comments on the Maori. I've been away on travel - been in New Orleans for work. Looks like all sorts of stuff has been going here on since I left. All sorts of new projects I was able to check in a few times while I was over there, but I couldn't post.

I haven't done much but sand on the big bugger since I got back, but he is getting closer and I'm thinking about finishing him out soon. I have several commissioned pieces to do, and I'm getting itchy to move on. Here's a few newish pics.

Thanks Ben, it's good to be home. Thanks for the kind words about the Maori. I think he is pretty much completed, and I'll be finishing up with him soon. I've been neglecting/not doing the other carvings and paintings that I need to do to stay in business. The G hits us small business owners hard, and you have to work like mad to make enough to pay all the dang taxes. I've spent too long on this one and need to get going on some other commissioned pieces.

Very cool Maori! I like the coulors of the wood and the face of the figure. Especially the nose!

this is a great piece GMan...you should be proud of him. As our buddy Kaha would say...
he's plenny pono.....
I don't really know what that means...I just like the way it sounds. All your stuff is
pono pono pono.

Haikai, thanks for the comment. I like the colors and his face too I'm suffering from chainsaw withdrawal though, it's time to start cutting into another chunk of wood! I love your stuff BTW.

Conga, thanks. To the best of my knowledge, pono means "goodness". Yes, much pono here. Also Kaha says "pupule", which means "crazy". There is a lot of both over here right now. Pupule pono!

I'm still working on the Maori. I did a little work on his toes today, cutting in an angle on the tops of his toes, and spent the rest of the time sanding and cleaning up some problem areas. I didn't take pics as there wasn't much change that would show well in pictures. He's coming along though.

Hey all,

Here's a rough out I did tonight after work. I've been working late in the office and not having any sunlight to work with. Tonight I got home and had about a half hour before dark and decided to quickly change clothes, sharpen my carving chain, and try to start a new piece. I worked for about 1.5 hours and it seemed like the only dang light I had was the light from the stars reflecting off my saw bar. Geez. I think I did most of this one by feel. It was scary. Put that in the carving safety post - *don't use a chainsaw in the dark*. Here are the pics of the rough out. This guy is cedar, 42" tall, and will be Maori tekoteko.









I hope you like him.

Gman

I like him! I really dig the two tone of the walnut. What an eye! Man that's cool.
