Great pendant, but don't stain him!! Just some clear would be great and it will darken the wood some too all by itself.

Bowie: Thanks and leopard spots on a moai, that would be really cool, does anybody think at it before ? I'm a bad painter, so I'll be preparing another one so that when you'll come to Paris we'll have a collaboration piece



Cool! I've been to Paris once a few years ago. I'll find a picture to post.

That Marquesan will be stunning i'm sure.
Great commitment on the toggle, it will make the moai even more unique.

Hi Benjamin!

Toggle for the moai with head of birdmen! Original idea! I'm curious to see him finished...


Maybe this rotten birch marquesan is not really lost...



In any case the line is very pure and the coloured strips make a very graphic design.
Also I see the kotiate work in progress...

A bientôt.


J.

Nice nice nice! Im getting excited this big guy has the
classic look you are getting so good at.

What do you mean do you think he is rotten?
My Alder wood is similar the the Birch. Benz told me the streaking
in mine is fungus.

Marquesan style is getting to be your specialty, Benjamin. Really nice work on this big guy! I agree that the stripe markings look good.

Ha ha! Just kidding!


That's me on the left, and my traveling buddy John on the right. After backpacking for 9 weeks all over Europe, I really needed a haircut!
C'est la vie!

Almost looks like ambrosia or spalted? Can't wait to see it finished. Should be a very interesting piece. Good luck.

Nice classic lines indeed! Your birch looks like stuff around here! It's a good hardwood though, and holds up a long time. If you want to tame those lines a bit, maybe some darker stain, will cut down the high contrasts.

Laojia: Thanks for the toggle and for the Marquesan boy. I think I will let him natural after having put a fw coats of "xylophene", the stripes are not so bad after all
10 days before the D-day meeting
Kotiate ? Where ? Yes you're right, a lot of 10 000 hours to spend on it but thanks to you and your blades, I saved 5000 hour !

Seek: Thanks my friend. You're right, this guy's not rotten this crappy things are just fungus (or fungi ?) because of the long time I took to debark this silver wood. What do you think about methods to kill those enemies ? Coats of something and tikis in a bag ?

Bowie: Thanks for the words. WOW that haircut, I didn't recognize you ! Was it in the 80's ? This picture seems quite old, that indicates you need to come again to see how different it is now

Tikilizard: Thanks. I do not know about ambrosia or spalted but this wood is really soft sometimes and when the
chisels are not sharp enough, this leads to disaster

Surfin: Thanks for the words and for the advice, I think I'll let him natural with that "stripped" look but will put some coats of "I don't know what" to prevent from "completely lost piece

Mahalos,

Benjamin.

Ben I'm not sure? we need Benz in here. I think the fungi and wood are one.
When the log drys out the fungi dies.
