I can attest to this seahorse being a Beauty, It Really is Nice and he was Blind when I saw him. Excellent job Finky. Can't wait to see what you pull outta your hat tomorrow.

Hello again everyone! All moved in and back to carving once more. Florida's nice and all, but the damned tropical, floral-scented ocean breeze keeps blowing my garage door shut. It's a wonderful problem to have.





Congratulations on the move! You are on fire with the bone and having Benzart as a mentor there will be no stopping you.

Thanks everyone! Ben carved for a bit with the hook knife for me, so I thought I should better give it a try. It's a piece of Makore(sp?) which is a bit harder than Mahogany, but easy enough to carve by hand. It has a wonderful grain. I'm roughing it out with power tools, but I'm going to try to detail as much as possible with hand tools, especially the hook knife.
Here he is so far.

When he's complete he'll be holding a spear. I should admit that he is loosely based on the gorgeous tiki that 8ft Tiki posted recently. His work is very inspiring!

Ben, I broke the tip off the knife you loaned me in about 3 minutes after you left. Sorry. Any advice for this guy? It's been a long time since I've carved anything besides bone.

The weather was wonderful today; not too hot and mostly sunny. I planted a coconut palm in my front yard today. I'll probably be dead and buried by the time I get to see it bear fruit, but what can you do. Before that I carved another hook since I've had a couple of requests for them lately. There really is a ton of good artwork being posted lately. I can't believe that so many great people can co-exist here.
Inverted Hook:


Thanks again everybody.

PS. Those may be the worst pictures I've ever posted. Curse my camera! (or maybe my photographic skills )

I really like ALL of the bone pieces you have been doing lately!

As for the palm tree - the irony is - once it does start producing fruit it will be just the right size for a nice tiki. The chainsaw is calling!

Hey Finky, No problem with the tip, the important thing is how do you like the hook blade? It looks like you are doing some nice detail with it.
Love the tiki, just keep carving and cleaning it up and the detail will flow.
Love the inverted hook too ! Man you are just work, work, working. Keep it up and I'll be asking you for help.
