Thanks for lookie and complements

tikifreak - i will put him in envelope and send him East.
Yes he would look cool in that remodel you have going on.

Robin - thanks yes the hands just set below the high outer point
when i rotate him.

Lake - thanks bro, I'm learning so much with each carve.
The nose i think is my biggest mistake i could not get a grove on it.

benella - thanks bro, i cant decide how I'm going to do the feet yet?

Hey Bro'

Each foot have to make a 90 angle with the leg. The center line of the leg is in the same direction of the space that stand between the second and the third toe. This space is the real center of the foot.
In anatomy, the first toe stands for 2 normal toes because it is the biggest.
If I have some time, I'll send you some pix or a drawn sketch.
Tell you that you have left enough wood to carve wonderful feet, so if you can't wait : good luck !

mahalo,

Benjamin.

Thanks so much for posting all of these photos and describing all of the trials and errors you have gone through! That head dress on the last one is off glass, brah.

Anyone know what kind of tree that is in front of the Yankee Clipper (Ft. Lauderdale/Hukilau)? The huge seed pods look like that guys head dress. I actually have some of those trees growing now from last years Hukilau!

Keep up the great work and thanks again for all of your posts. It is great to see how helpful people are around here! I wish I had some hard woods to try out. All I have worked on so far is sabal and royal palms.
