Wow JP! The crock horn - how cool is that? I'm surprised that you could get it down to 1/2 inch thich without breaking out somewhere with the chainsaw. Very well done! A sound bite would be very interesting...

Now to the fish! Whoa! That's a big fish!
Is that all one piece of wood? It is really cool.

What tools would you use to attempt the scales? I tried scales once, just for practice, and with a Foredom or Weecher, it might be easier. I didn't get too far though - just playin around. It still was pretty difficult to get the right look.

Very nice job on the fish, especially the detail on the head. What sort of colour are you going to pout on the croc horn? I'm hanging to see it finished!

I didn't know you were a good enough fisherman to land a beast like the=at. He must have felt sorry for you and Jumped right into your boat, just to help you out a bit. Good on 'ya. Excellent catch oh brave fishcatcher!!

Excellent! I can't even imagine how much that must weigh. He's looking real sharp, I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.

Thank you all for the comments.

Gman and Loki- Thanks for the continued support, Hopefully I can carve with you guys soon.

Congatiki- This is the only way to catch these fish up here, but when you cook them they taste a lot like pine, I don't blame you for not being into sawdust flavored fish. Keep up the PNG pieces.

TTT- Welcome to TC. Thanks for your props. You do top shelf work and it is a pleasure to watch those jade pieces come to life.

TikiGap- It is one log for the body and rear lower tail and seven added fins- which I still have a bit more fine tuning to eliminate the gaps. I gave up on the scales for now. The horn took a lot of patience and a real easy throttle finger. Further inside the horn the walls thicken up so it is all not 1/2 inch wall.

Paipo- the Crockhorn will be sepik river dark with chalky paint- similar to what Congatiki has done recently. I just hope mine turns out as good as his.

Finkdaddy- Thanks. I think it weighs about 65-75 pounds.

Here is the last couple small projects. The next project will be a tiki in a style I haven't done before.

Benzart- Thanks, this is the secret lure I use to catch these. Makes the tarpon a bit more tiki, so I am going to use the tarpon as a display mount for this Sociity Island fish hook replica.



A bull-roar. I have always wanted one of these ever since I heard that old Midnight Oil song. I found a picture of one from New Guinea and thought it would fit the tiki theme. Shallow relief carved. The flash made the white stand way out, it's not that bright. I think the figure on it came out looking like Icus from "Real Monsters" though. It sounds pretty cool when used.




Here is another bone dagger. This again from deer leg-bone.




Thanks for looking and have a great week!
JP

Diggin' the bullroarer - I was checking out some Maori ones in a book of instruments a week or two back with thought of doing one. I don't think they'd go too well in stone though! I love the red/black/white PNG colour combo you've used. You seem to have a good eye for doing more unusual and offbeat objects.

JP,

That stuff rocks! Bring that lure down here and we'll see how it stands up to a marlin - old man and the sea style!

The roarer is nutz, I want one! Does it sound like Crocodile Dundee's? If so it's a must have for Club Greg. Bring it with you next time you come by so we can mess around with it.

That dagger is choice; same style as your previous piece? Man I hope Kings gets it, it would really look great in his collection. Thanks for sharing.

Keep up the killer worx!

-Gman

Yeah, Most Excellent stuff there. The Bone knife is Really Excellent, very different looking. Did you get all the barbecue sauce off it after/before you carved It??
When I was a kid I used to make those Bull roarers, thay were Soo cool and different sizes make different sounds too. I don't remember doing any fancy carving on mine though.

Hi,

Benzart, somehow I find it hard to believe that you used to make something that didn't have any fancy carving all over it.

Paipo, It's not that I have an eye for unusual objects, I just try different things to push me and learn new things. Maybe I'll give stone a shot.

Here is the start of the first tiki I've done in a while. Gman has prompted me to do a Maori, so I decided to do so. It will be a tekoteko loosely interpreted from an image found on the net. Just about 4 feet tall. So far it is just about an hour and a half rough cut block in with a chainsaw. It is going to have to dry a bit before I go any further. I think this one will take a while. As Congatiki says, hopefully it will be done before the snow falls.

Front


Side


Other side


I also blocked out a Hawaiian bowl/platter that will be supported buy figures on either end. I'll try to get pics later today.

Thanks
JP
