Hi John.

The maripi/flesh knife is going to be great. Very nice openwork, not so easy in wood Id imagine..?

Croc-horn is a killer! PNG inspired?

And glad to see the big guy back in one piece! Looks like a tough character.

Tama

Johnny...

Some really great stuff going on at your place... your work has always had a real authentic feel to it. Love it!

Looking forward to the canoe project as it progresses over this winter... next spring and summer will be fun if this project takes off!

Keep up the great and diverse work!

Nice stuff Johnny! I'm glad you are working on the Tekoteko again. He doesn't look any worse for wear. I still say I want this one when you move down.

PIGHAMMER!

Benzart- I have a lot more than three projects going at once. It is easy to start one, but hard to finish, so my garage has a bunch of starts.

Conga and Bete- Thanks for your support and comps

TTT the croc horn is PNG inspired. I think wood is a lot easier to carve than stone, you guys amaze me.

LS. I am looking forward to the canoe ( Operation Pighammer) project. I am going to carve a smaller one here in the next month or so to get the feel for the scope of the bigger challenge. Thanks for the complements, your thread is one I always watch.

Gman- He is back together, you can have him for "dinged and dented" sale price. Actually I'll make you another one, this guy is shafted (doweled), glued, and screwed. The next one will be a lot better.

Here is the flesh knife all done. It is going up in the market place section.






Thanks for looking

SWEET!

Yeah - those photos really show the piece nicely. But that knife would show nicely under any circumstances probably. The finish is great - I like dark woods. Marketplace, huh? Hmmm.

Congrats on the repair too - looks like he's gonna make it!

Can you post an MP3 of the sound that the horn makes? Now that there is a tool I could use around the house in the early morning hours, too!

Great stuff - and varied. Keep it up JP - !!

Thanks guys appreciate the comments.

I'd like to record the horn and put a sample here, but I don't know to do that. Any suggestions.

It sounds like a loud shell horn or a fog horn.

I decided to make a couple more. Benzart, stop me. I've started too many projects. My goal is have these complete by Thanksgiving dinner. We are having family over, and our kids can "entertain" the guests with them. Mrs JohnnyP and I each had one out side and one of our distant neighbor (1/4 mile) shouted back "Stop it!" All three have different tones. It will be interesting to hear how they all sound together.






This is a cannibal fork, loosely interpreted from one from Fiji. I just need to put some finish on it. We will use this to serve the turkey. It is 13 inches long.






I'm thinking of changing my name from JohnnyP to Pighammer. What do you think?

Thanks for looking.


JP

NO Way, I think you should start about 78 more then you would be up with Tama, then you could just finish them when you felt like it.
Lookin Good.
