fink this hula dancer series is INSANELY good. I mean like "enter-it-into-woodworking-competitions good."

Seriously.

You'd blow all those amature bowl turners out of the water!!!

The way that you blend all the wood together...and layer it...the complimentary colors...carving skill (they don't even looked carved!) and the eye for detail (like the skull necklace!). just amazing.

wow.

THanks for sharing and I'm sorry I didn't see this thread until now. I've really been missing out!

Thanks Ben, I hope you're enjoying the weather down there. It's cold this morning!
Polynesiac, thanks a bunch. You're too kind!

Ditto Polynesiac's comment about these being INSANELY good!!!

And I too, think those skulls are perfect touches. Are they wood, or something else?

Mate, I don't know what's sparked this, but since your move back, you've been pumping out some awesome work!

This is a really beautiful piece. I like the others in the series as well. The little uke is nuts.

Wow, the hula girls continue to amaze me! Man, the attention to detail on these is remarkable! I'm really enjoying seeing these come together.

Wow, thanks again everybody. You're making me blush.
These have been a lot of fun to do, and I have another one or two to do until I move on the next idea.
I'm probably posting this in the marketplace tonight, so chime in there if you're interested in her.
Mahalo!

I haven't had much time to carve this week, but I've managed to squeeze in some time for a commision piece. It's for a woman who plays roller derby. There are some fun things planned for this one, so stay tuned!


She's only about 3" now, but I think she'll be closer to 4" when I'm finished. I have to give big props to my daughter, who helped me a ton with the sketches on this one.
Thanks for looking!

I know roller derby is tough, but an amputee? What happened to her arm?
