Thanks very much for the pictures of the drills, this helps a lot. I think I know wich kind of "driller" you used but did you use the "hammer" drill mode in french it is percution mode or simply the turning mode ?

Waiting for new update

Benjamin

Thanks, Lake and Seeks.
Since he did not fit under my drill press, I drilled this guy by hand. Pretty hard to keep everything straight and lined up but it worked out fine in the end.

Benella, I used the normal turning settings on my drill, works great. I only use the hammer setting for drilling concrete.

One pic was made without a flash and with some background clutter removed. It gives a better idea of what the lamp with its light on looks like.

Excellent Stuff Grapa-Ru, that lamp looks perfectly finished sitting there so pretty/ugly, however tiki lamps are supposed to look. Really nice piece.

Excellent stuff, dude and thanks for the reply.
The pix without the flash is really better, at least to me !
I had an idea with a lamp too but differently done, something like a tiki with the lamp on his hand... something really sneaky that I hope to be able to carve and realyze one day !

Bravo,

Benjamin.

Your carve is really cool, very good execution, mounting lamp is very well done... I just reserved for the lampshade that seems to me a little sad, not the height of the sculpture...

Aloha my Tiki friends,

It's been awhile since I posted something, but sometimes there is more in live that has to be dealt with than just having fun with a piece of wood. But it can't be just about work neither so here as fast Marq I carved for the garden.






Benz, thanks for the compliment.
Mudbone, 2 would be a real challenge or work thanks
Benjamin, Thank you. Keep chipping wood
Laoija, Thank you for your kind words and don't feel sad about the shade. It's just temporary until I come up with or make something better

Hi Dude,

Nice work on the half body/hands.

I love the "diamond" eyes.

Benjamin.

Mahalo, for all your kind words and compliments.
Here's something different, I dug up a bone from when I was a dog.
Made a hook out of it and finally got the cord right.



Thanks for watching

When you dug up that bone, it wasn't a mudbone was it?
