Is that Koa wood? The grain does look really nice, it almost looks a little lighter in the front, not sure if that's the wood or just the lighting.


No, I think it's called Abezia, but I'm not 100% sure about that. It's much softer than Koa and is easy to work, although it wants to break apart when doing smaller details.
That is the color of the wood, not just lighting. It looks really pretty up close.

Thanks for the nice comments!

It's Monday morning, despite two days of bikers and beer, I'm not hungover at all. Maybe I'm not that old after all.
After several years of being denied, I finally got my wife to say I could buy a motorcycle. She took a couple of rides on the back of my friends bike and was completely convinced that I need one! Now all I need is a job so I can afford one.
Oh well, one thing at a time, right?

Anyway, I finished this one last night, I just need to make a real chord for it.
This one, as you can probably tell, was completely unplanned and sort of took some wierd turns. I'm still not sure how I feel about it yet.








Thanks everyone. Now I'm off to take my two boys to their first baseball practice!

Just finished up a grumpy little moai.
I got really sunburned today watching the kids at baseball. They had fun though, catching grounders and just learning the game. I couldn't be prouder! :thumbsup:



Thanks for looking!

I'm with those guys as well, Very well done.

Don't even Joke about putting away your tools, I'll put mine away first. Man, you have really jumped a few levels in your skills and the stuff you are doing now is just downright Sick. Hang on, get More woods and sharpen your toolz!

Alright, that's just crazy carvin'! Under 5" and all those voids?!? What kind of wood?
Great movement in the lizard, and delicate petals on the hibiscus!
