Looks like he is Pouting Bigtime about something! Cool lookin Moai drake, maybe ready for one of the upcoming TV Commercial spots.
You going to the bigWoodworking/construction tools and supply convention this weekend at the LV Convention center?
Automach is supposed to have a showing there and maybe they will have their big Recip carver there. Get one if you can. ( A blue or grey(depending on model) box with a chuck sticking out of it with a heavy duty flexshaft attached to it---Excellent systems. No telling who else will be there, I know I would LOVE to go.

Nice expression on the face. How did you get the eye to gleam like that?

Nice earring so far, pdrake. It's very symetrical and that's tough to do. It 's also bone? Don't let your dog get it!

That latest hook is very nice, very clean & crisp; Always a good look.

Grog-Moai is a character too.

Does antique ivory avoid the legal restrictions surrounding materials such as ivory/whalebone etc..? G

Have you got yourself a grinding wheel yet??

as far as my research has shown ivory harvested before the ban is legal. these pieces are from an estate during the 20s where the person made dominoes. most of them were glued to a piece of ebony and looked like they were destined for such a piece. the glue came apart quite easily and smelled of musty, dusty glue.
