Finkster! I love the end grain zebra wood. It has a different "stippled" look with all the end grain dots. Very unique. All of your resin pieces are looking fantastic! Tell the kids to keep on drawing and doing art like their good ole Dad. My son is the same way, and he loves to draw tikis.

Thanks everybody! I wouldn't do it if it weren't a ton of fun to do and now my kids are getting involved too, which is a super-bonus.
Is it just me or has all of the art on this site become outstanding?!
I'm very proud to be a part of it.

I'm all ready for the Chef Shangri La Anniversary!
Here are some pics of everything before I load it in the van.










Mahalo everybody, I'll see you later tonight!

Thanks for the props, everyone!

Special thanks to you, Ben. I only followed your advice for making the cords. That screwdriver trick works like a charm!

I still have a lot of stuff left over from the weekend. I just put a bunch of it up on the Coconut Economy website:
http://www.fraternalorderofmoai.org/coconuteconomy/index.php?list/15
(let me know if you have trouble logging in)

Please let me know if your interested in anything and I'll get it to you right away!

Super-Mahalos,

F

One night in class, when I was bored and not paying attention, I did a couple of pen-doodles to pass the time.
For some reason I only drew half-faces.
Here is one of them:

So, naturally, I carved him in bone in all of his half-glory.




For some reason this piece of bone has a lot of different colors in it.
I haven't decided if I like it enough to make a mold with it yet.
Thanks for looking!

Nice stuff, man! Great natural flow and detail. Bone is the best carving material around. I was hooked from the first piece.

Well then I guess It's only Half way Excellent then. Still it's tiki as it can't be anything else and I think it's Really Cool OR is it HALF Cool?
Naah All the way cool.

It looks like a tiki to me but if you want you can just call it a ti or ki.

Thanks BK! Yeah, I love carving bone too. I just wish you could get it in log sized pieces!

Ben, he may be cool in his own right, but compared to any carving of yours he's only half cool.

Thanks Tikilizard, maybe we should start a ti carving thread!

Very cool Fink, maybe you could make on of those for the Poly Pop Menu Art Swap



By the way, bone does come in log sized chunks - you just have to break into a natural history museum

Aloha one and all!
In my mad carving frenzy I finished up another pendant this afternoon. He's carved in mahagony, which is really nice to carve with hand tools. I roughed out the shape with the bandsaw, but everything else was done with a hook knife, a small round-tipped knife, a lot of sandpaper, and a paint brush.
If you are going to carve with hand tools, mahagony is a good wood to use since it's soft enough to cut and it holds a fair amount of detail. You just have to be careful on tiny shapes because it will "chip out" on you and cause much greif.






Thanks for looking!
