Hey GMAN, every time I see great stuff here! I always admire your big Maori carvigs and your small pendants. Your design and accuracy constantly getting better and better. Im looking forward to see some progress pics of your new pendants. Keep up the beautiful work! Greetings, Kai

Paipo - Yep, still waiting on the Paua Fairy. I hear he's got a buncha pieces for me I'm gonna need every piece of it now.

JohnnyP - Yep, not bad for a chainsaw guy, only this chainsaw guy used to carve decoys with chisels before he got bored (20 years ago) - I never said I couldn't use them, I just really love carving with my saw! Oh, and if you are in town for Thanksgiving, you need to come by. Just one thing, make sure you bring safety glasses, because when I carve a turkey, I let 'er rip! Brrrrrrrrp!

McTiki - thanks for the compliment!

Flippity Floppity Jones - Yeah, he does have a nice butt. I think I'll lift it a bit and make it a bit more round....that way the ladies will really dig him!

Benz - The shark is still sitting on the kitchen table; right where he was when you came over. I'll get back to him one day. I could probably finish him in one weekend and then do his moko in another few days. As for all the Maori tekos, I'm just enjoying having them around. All the others are gone.

Hewey - Thanks dude, I try.

Haikai - Thanks man. If I ever get to Germany, we'll have to get together and let the saws rip!

I appreciate all the comments and support, you guys are great. I cut out another pendant tonight, a small hei-tiki. Here he is below, and in another pic with the others I cut last night. Now I'll get cracking on these buggers and wait for the Paua Fairy.....





And another pic with a few other pendants in there....

I dunno who he is. As for the shark, $$ come first, and I have expensive hobbies. The shark can wait. I know where he is, and he's not going anywhere.

He's the guy I sent you the video and quotes from back when you were stapled together. It was the painkillers! Check your PM the day you got slammed. It might seem familiar...
and then all this will make sense.
Dude, I cannot believe you can't remember Bas Rutten. Don't they have Pride on Fox Sports TV out there in Florida? He was the host before Frank Trigg. Ask ED...

Hey all, I've been working on a pendant tonight. I'm only about an hour in, but he's coming along.

Buzzy - Thanks, I enjoy working on the buggers. I posted a pic of one further along below.

pdrake - I have a Delta saw. I don't recommend it. As for the designs, they come from inside of me. I view hundreds of Maori pendants each week, including online museum pieces. In time I just started drawing them and as i drew more, I like what I was making.

Here's one partially done. I still have a ton to do, but you can see some of what is done. He is carved on both sides, to allow for the 3D of his arms and legs being forward or back.

This is my first attempt at the new photo upload gig, so we'll see how it goes.

Hey GMAN- Your stuff is looking cool as ever! I also like the shade of the stain you're using.

Hewey - Yeah man, he's laid-back fo sho (the way I wish I could be).

Sam - Thanks. I'm not sure how these will wind up stained - But I have a few cool ideas

T. Duddy - Yep, I'm rollin'....like a flat tire......

Benz - Thanks! I changed things up a bit to better match what I can do with my limited amount of tools.

Here is another pendant in progress. Neither of these are final sanded or have any detailing on them. That's all planned, but I want to have a few more at this stage before I move on to the finer work.
