Don't ever call an Ape a Monkey, have you learned nothing from Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall? I love the glass-like finish you managed on this guy. Great!

Surfintiki, yeah, the Ziricote is beautiful, but tough! Another thing, the wood smells amazing while you're carving it. It's like some kind of wonderful insense.

Big Daddy, thanks! I wanted to give him some personality.

Seeksurf, thanks for the comps!

Ben, I thought you'd like that.

AlohaStation, Check huh? OK, but don't cash it until the date I write on it.

Tikimango, thanks again, but watch out for those damned dirty apes!

I'll have a bunch of these resin copies for sale there too, on the cheap.
I've been playing around with resin tints and have been very happy with the results. :thumbsup:

Finkdaddy; You have an impressive body of work and I'm inspired everytime I see your carvings. You have a great eye for detail.
Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us. Its one of the reasons I do my quick lurking at work.

Here is a lono pendant that I worked on almost completely durring my son's baseball practices, done completely with a hook knife and a small gouge. The result is something that is not as clean as some of my other stuff, but that's OK since I will be making a mold of him anyway.

I don't know what kind of wood it is, but it didn't carve very well. It was very "chippy" and didn't want to hold any crisp edges. Hopefully I'll be able to pour some molds later this evening.
Mahalo!

You knocked another one out of the Pineapple field

If you keep carving masterpieces at practice. I can wait to see when he has a Double header .

Tiki 65, a baseball bat, huh? It would be cool if I could carve one that could still be used. I'll think on that for a while. Thanks for the comps!

leleliz, I just poured the mold right now. I'll let you know how it turns out! Thanks a bunch.

I just tested out the resin mold and it seems to have worked just fine.
