Hi, thanks for the props,

Conga, the wood is poplar and I like carving it, no wonder you carve so much of it, after carving ash and elm, this is wonderful.

Gman, I owed you some photos of the slit gong.

The latest update. All ready for the detail carving, and this is where it gets fun.










It is 68 inches from end to end and weighs over 100 pounds.

I think I am going to post this in Marketplace. If anybody from CA is interested I can get it to San Diego free of charge for shipping.

Happy New Year!!

Nice work Johnny!

Crazy detail work, but it looks like you are handling it well!

Popular looks like it doesn't check too bad?

Best of luck as you continue!

It's been a coulple months. There has been a lot of nice carvings and orginal art posted here in the time I havn't posted. I have been watching though every day. Here is my update on a couple projects.

The slit drum I have been working on. Both male and female ends.






A PNG bow, arrows and arrow heads to follow



And finally a new carving, a orator's pulpit I just started

Great stuff Johnny. Always wanted to do an orator's chair,
couldn't get my hands on a big enough log. You have a great one
going, and the drum figures are wonderful.

For the number of projects you've got going and the detail involved, you're forgiven for the lapse of updates.

You and Conga have got the PNG down solid. I'm hoping to pull into a nearby third or fourth this summer.

That drum is amazing. I'm thinking about doing one in the Vanuatu style. I haven't found any information on the dimensions of the cavity. Any advice? I'd like to be able to play it just to annoy one of my neighbors. I'm sure the stool will turn out awesome as well. Major talent happening here.

Thanks guys and gals.
Thanks Conga-I appreciate it, spring is almost here, some of the snow melted and we even may see summer sometime soon.

Lake,- I do have a lot of pieces going, but what is keeping me from posting is we are trying to get the house ready to sell. We are hoping to move to Florida this summer. I'm in a race to see if I can finish all I've started before having to abandon them here.

Benella, thanks for the feedback, you have some wonderful carvings as well, it is always a treat to see your updates.

Amate, how is your slit gong going?.....

Benzart- My work is almost always outside, there is no more room under the bed or behind the couch.

Seeksurf= fantastic art you are creating, I can only hope to be as precise.

Clarita, thanks, the drum is continuing, but a chip here and there doesn't really show up in progress shots, I do need to spend a few hours on it.

Here is a New Caledonia roof spire. A bit of simple flat-work for a change. It is hard to see the face carved in it. This much snow left after several days of sun and above freezing temps. Michigan sucks---the snow is almost gone today.
