Thanks everyone!

Gman- Thanks for the advice. I've been getting some great tips lately.

Tikiwahine- Mahalo! I think it would look best hanging around your neck.

JohnnyP- I guess the lines are straight enough, but it's really the depth of the lines in the engraving that I'm having trouble getting smooth.

Hewey- Mahalo mate! It's always good to hear from you. Hurry up and move already. Free #1 from his newspaper prison!

Fink,
lookin' good my friend. i think your really onto sumptin' here. I think i'm about ready to start one. I really like the eye hole on the newest hook. That is not an easy cut.

Thanks J$! I thought it was funny when people confused us at Exotica, but when everyone did it at Hukilau too I figured there must be something to it!

Loki, thank you so much. It was very nice to hang out with you in Florida. I think you should give bone carving a try. I was nervous about it, but Gman led me through it. Now I just have to invest in a good engraving bit to get my lines more even.

Here is my latest hook. It's kind of a loop-hook combo. I know my pictures suck, my camera hasn't been the same since I dropped it. It's better in person, trust me.




Mahalo!

Thanks AlohaStation! I have to try stuff that's interesting to me and that is more difficult than the previous piece. Sometimes I get in way over my head and a potentially great piece turns out weak and sloppy, but at least I've learned something and I have a lot of fun trying.

Ben, with any luck it will never end. Mahalo!

It's cool to see you guys doing the kiwi style stuff - we all cut our teeth on hooks, twists and spirals here, and they teach you some really good technical skills. You seem to have a great feel for these already finkdaddy, and they'll just keep getting better and more detailed as you find new short-cuts and tricks.
I haven't done any for ages and they used to be a specialty of mine, but I do have a hook commission coming up this week so it'll be fun carving one again.

Hello finky, Where are you too? I'm having to go out and round up all the tiki carvers who are goofing off and you are one of them. Get back to work. I'll have to be the slave driver to get this show on the road. WE NEED TIKI

You're right Ben, I have been slacking. Today I have to work on one more bone pendant for Mr. Polynesiac, then it's back to wooden tikis for a couple of rounds. Thanks for kicking me in the behind.
