That ball is fairly round because I bought some more tools! I splurged last week and bought of couple of these bad boys:

They're great for carving round things. Indispensible, I should say. I got the big "V" tool too (not pictured).

I got those same gouges and love them. Good choice. The front one and the V tool are what I use about 80% of the time. I use that rear one for quick removal when it's too late to hit the piece with the chainsaw. One of the best buys I've made so far.

Hey Buzzy! Thanks! Yeah - I think these chisels will get a lot of attention from me. I really like the big "V". Can't beat the FlexCuts. They certainly rock.

And hey Surf-n-turf! Good to see ya! The inlay was actually easier than I thought. A really sharp X-Acto knife is a good tool. (I used a hook knife too, tho).

You draw the design, lay the material on it - (in this case it was Abalone and bone), then trace it. The bone and abalone stuff really stinks though - You must use a mask... it's really nasty smelling. Smells like the dentist drilling your teeth.

I got Pooltiki back for Winterization. I scrubbed him down with steel wool and re-coated him with polyurethane... a couple of times.





And then I had a Black Magic... mai kai style, I think.

Definitely GET Out the PIGHAMMER for this log. Certainly cries "PIG", but be mindful od the wood in the Head space, there may be a lot missing, so rough that part out first.

OK apologies to all female members of this forum but...
TIKI PRIESTESS with a kinda SAGGY RACK--good chance to break the dominance of MALE tiki idols with a truly EVIL woman tiki carving--just stand it with the BOOBS facing you--you'll see--big LONO type head too?

What a cool log. I'm interested to see the pig develop.

I was at the Field Museum in Chicago and I found this in the Oceanic Art section and thought of your carvings.

Man! Thanks! That's is really something! I never knew bats were so honored in the PNG culture. I'm gonna have to make a few more of mine soon. Thanks so much for posting this! I can't wait to show this to the wahine... I'm totally amazed by this and the other references in this thread on pages 9-10. Thanks again!

Pighammer? Did someone say PIGHAMMER?


Here's a PiggyBackHammer:


HA! He's got stones in his head! And thanks BB Moondog for the suggestions - I stood 'er up and took a frontal shot:


Thanks for looking, and especially thanks for the PNG style bat ephemera. WAY cool!

Thanks Buzzy -

The pig is moving along, allbeit slowly. I ruined my Lancelot from a rock hidden in there, which slowed me down even more. I'm using old dull chisels on it now until I'm sure there are no more rocks. I'll post a picure or two in the next couple of days - when I figure out how to use my new camera.
