Yeah ditto on what everyone said. It's so good to see the more exotic oceanic carvings. I keep thinking I'll someday carve something like that....or maybe just watch your stuff!

Thanks,

Congatiki, my carving clothes look like yours? That coat is 25 years old and I have used it as a work coat most of that time, there is not much left to it. Gotta stay warm some how.

Benzart, thanks your complements mean the most, from such a talented powerhouse!

Lake, I do try to take a somewhat different path. As far as the snow we got 2 weeks ago when you posted, it is still on the ground, and we are getting 6-10 inches tonight...... Arrggg. Florida sounds really nice right now.

Grapa, "the ever sexy woolly hat" LOL. Thanks for checking in. I've been enjoying your thread.

Benella, the trained termites are my secret, but they do like ash wood.


Seeks, The burning shots might have reminded you of Hendrix, but I was trying not to be like Richard Pryor

Tikilizard, As soon as I figure out how to post sounds I'll let you know.

G- "Slacker" --Ha, I just found a faster way!

Bete Thanks, nice to see you back, and in Texas now?

TeaKey- Thanks for the link to the pighammer, I saved all the pictures. I want to make another.

Surfintiki- I'd like to see you carve something like this too, I'm sure you would be able to show me a lot, you'd make it look easy.

The PNG Men's house roof finial is finally done. This took a lot more time than I thought it would, and for a while I thought I would never finish it. It is about 7 feet tall. All those white dots in the picture are falling snowflakes for you Southerners that might not recognize them.

Some finished carving, but before stain photos.





All stained up.





















Ancestral figures representing the creation/ birth myth. I made the wingtips wrap around them so they seem to be also emerging from a symbolic "womb"




Gator (for Gman) - actually crocodile head at the end of the bird's tale. Sorry for the blurry picture, it was getting dark out with the storm moving in.

This is One of your better pieces with only about 5 dozen on That list it is Hard to pick a winner so they are ALL winners. This one especially is Way over the top Excellent, Do you still need my shipping address? There is plenty time to get it here before Christmas

Is that 8 heads on there Johnny? Hmmm. That's a lotta schtuff to be stickin into a log, man. This piece is beautifully executed - it looks like it came right out of the jungle. You know, it makes me wanna go earth diving and dig for yams......

OMG. What a masterpiece...it came out...just...beautiful!! Sniff Sniff. Very complex work, so much to look at, it's amazing.
What a juxtaposition, with all the COLD snow...I picture it in some sacred temple in the jungles somewhere!
Way to go man!

JP, this guy is insane! A lot going on and so much detail. I like how you left the bark on some of the base. Great job!
