Hope everybody had a great holiday! Vacation is over folks get back to carving and posting. It has been a few slow days around here.

I finished the horns right before Thanksgiving.






And here is the next projects starting. The long log is going to be a Vanuatu Slit Gong just under 8 feet and the slab of wood is Pighammer part Duex.

the horns are great Johnny, I assume they are hollowed out, duh? Are you using a
hook knife for the detail? very nice.

Nice nice nice! I'm pretty excited about the slit gong. Who's getting the second PIGHAMMER - not some fishy fellow in Florida is it?!?
I'm still keen to host those sound files for you so we can hear the horns - send 'em in to me!

JohnnyP - always a busy man! An 8' slit drum aye? Croc-style or ancestral figure-style? Kool! Your musical instruments are outrageous! I was thinking that log was gonna be a mini canoe.....a mock-up so we know what we are working toward. I'll settle for a big slit drum. Have you and Piapo been able to get the sounds hosted and posted? I wants to hears 'em!

Hey Paipo - I resemble that remark! But really, I don't know who PIGHAMMER II is for. Maybe he wants to carry a back-up club when I take him into the hog swamp? Maybe I leave him in there and I keep both clubs........

Ahhhh, the log harvest. I miss those days. I've got way too many right now, and with a foot of snow on the way log harvesting will be tough.
60 to 30 in 12 hours... then a foot of snow. But you already know the joys of Midwest weather.

Nice stuff... now get back to work!

Conga- No I didn't use the hook knife for the detail. It was a combination of Flexcuts and Foredome.

Gman- The Prototype outrigger canoe is close to being started, this slit gong will be an ancestor figure standing upright.

Paipo- This slit gong has me pretty excited to. The second Pighammer is for me. Gman is getting the first as soon as I can part with it. I think I better part with it soon, or he will come an get it. I should be afraid of a guy who uses a chainsaw for a hobby, shoots large caliber cannon, and kills wild boar with a little itty bitty knife- On second thought he doesn't need a Pighammer.

Thank you Queen Kamehameha, Bete, and Hakalugi . I appreciate the support.

Lake- Hope you weathered the storm. Mostly rain here so far, we've been lucky to miss the worst that has hit the rest of the northern parts of the country.

Hewey- I noticed you asked a question a while ago that I didn't answer. I carved the inside of the cannibal fork by cutting a cross shape down the tine by making two cuts 90 cuts as deep as the tines. Then I drilled out the core following the intersection of the two cuts. To round the tines I used sandpaper and a lot of patience. Hope that made sense. Finkdaddy, the turkey fat only left a little patina on the fork that adds to the character.

Remember this piece. I finally got motivated to start working on it again now that the weather is rainy and cold outside. Here is little update. I'll be working on this a little every night for a while.





It looks like I am going to be able to get two Pighammers out of the slab. Happy Happy.

Thanks for looking,

JohnnyPighammer.

Good to see you back on the prow johnny. After reviewing your whole thread I gotta agree with the
Basement dweller, you are the man for the PNG stuff. It looks like you took a little cruise along
the Sepik and grabbed a little something from all the villages. Great attention to detail!

Awesome!
I missed the intro to this Croc. Looks like a goodie!

Im another who's waiting to hear the haunting tones...

Watch out Piggies - Here's Johnny! And he's got a hammer in each hand... (better get those two separated; they look a little... um, cosy...)

Nice work. T3
