Mahalos, Tiki friends.

Nope, it wasn't a mudbone. I store em nice and dry
Thanks Seeks and Mango, you two are a big inspiration.
Thanks Laojia, I like what you are doing with the wood

Well the bone proves to be addictive, made another hook on a cord and toggle.
Maybe it's because I understand the cord thing and want to braid all the time.
Did a tiny encore, smallest i did so far.
Thanks for watching.
Pat

Nice hook and multi-barbs. I need to learn the cord technique. Maybe I can just send all my pendants your way for that finishing touch? That's one teeny skull.

Thanks Tiki Mango,
Off course you can send all your stuff to me so I can put a chord on them.
Some pieces might get lost in the process

Hey Grapa-RuHa,
Ive been watching this threat for quit a while now. These are some excellent ideas and straight realizations. Cools details on your tikis.
It is always fun to watch and read about bone carving. For myself, I never tried it out but it gives much inspirations. Maybe, one day.
Thanks for sharing.

Tok-tok, I hope to see you wielding a mallet and a chisel soon and better times lie ahead. Thanks for the compliments.

Benz, thanks for pushing the addiction I do a lot of Benzaerobics (Going after small stuff that took a jump) Bone is fun!

Talking about bone, I started a new shifter for my bike about a month ago that ended on top of the TV set. Now that I have made the small bone skull, I know how to finish him. here's some progress pics.

Excellent carving. The wood looks like basswood isn't it ?
The bone skull is really well done and sticks perfectly with this Marquesan buddy.
Will you let it natural or stain it ? I think natural wood sounds better with this beautiful grain

Benjamin.

Mahalos for all the nice comments again.

Mudbone, thanks and read the safety thread before carving small stuff.
Loajia, bone and wood look excellent together. Thank you.
Benella, Thanks for the nice compliment. It's not basswood, it's a hardwood called maranti I think.
Thanks Clarita and Seeks, nice to see you around here.

Well here's the finished shifter, now I want to make a couple of valve caps to make the bike complete.


Thanks for watching

Hey Grapa,like the stain choice,it enhances the wood and really sets off the skull.Great carve and did you burn the tatoos?
