finkdaddy, the amount of detail you're able to put in such a small space confuses me. Are you carving these things normal size and then hitting them with a shrink-ray or something? WOW!

Hey Fink,

That bottom feller is kinda progressive, aye? What a way to finish out the trilogy. Great stuff. So, any thoughts on how you are going to finish it. Natural? Oiled? stained?....we wanna know! Great job on a tough project. Beautiful carve man!

-Gman

Ok GMAN, I've finally started on a piece of bone. I thought I would try something simple first before trying one of your increadible Maori pieces, so I'm doing a couple of hooks first.

I need to smooth and polish this one yet, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Can I just use a felt pad on my Dremel, or do I have to add some abrasive powder to it or something?



Here is the last one I was working on. The stain came out a bit blotchy because I hate sanding so very much, but I'm going to make a bunch of resin copies, so the color will still be OK in the end. This will be framed and look similar to the other wall plaques I've done, except maybe a bit cleaner looking.






Thanks all for looking!

FINKY! Excellent stuff man, you have come a Long way.. The hook looks like it wil be sweet too. Yes, use the abrasive powder on the felt, with out that, the felt will just shine the scratches. I use different grit Fingernail boards from Walgreens. there are some with 100/120 grit and some wit 4 grits that will sand and polish to a bright shine. Check them out.

Surfintiki, Thanks. The Moai was just my own creation. I wish I had done the mouth differently, but he's ok. The Marq was inspired by a pic in the BOT. The Lono was based an a few different pics that a TCer (Grog maybe?) had posted a while back. I just thought it would look cool that's all.

Hewey, thanks mate! It's always nice to hear from you. How's that wagon doing?

Benzart, thanks for the advice. I was thinking of using some 220 grit sandpaper and then using the felt on the dremel with the abrasive powder that I use on my sharpening strop. Do you think that will be sufficient?

Conga, thanks again. I got the bone from a pet store, all the advice and inspiration came from GMAN!

GMAN, you da man! I'm going to polish that up and start a new one today. I love how the bone carves, especially because there is no grain. You can carve in any direction without problems. But man, it does not smell good at all!

Big mahalos to everyone!!
