Well done Paipo! I am in now Dr Frankenkava!!!

HERE a good source of inspiration for tips and techniques for workbench and clamping.

Don't be jealous, everybody can buy Pfeil chisel anywhere and not many people can find jade tongue near his neighborhood...

Thanks for the article on the work bench. Some nice benches for inspiration to build one. Foot vice looks painful though.

Love the vacation Photos, the carvings were an Excellent find?
Thanks too for the Workbench book, it holds Many hours of fun and inspiration. I was Already eying your beautiful big bench and being very envious of that. (Sorry it's a tool junkie thing.)Maybe if I had one of those benches I could make a tenon joint half as tight as the ones in your mini/portable bench? Ah,SURE, Dream on Ben. Nice to see Paipo showing some tool envy.

Nice! The vac looks like a soother.

The little fella looks so good all secured on the work table.
Some nice local art to stoke the mind.

Also a pleasant encounter with a Parisian carver for a lunch on the road...




All the pleasure was for me !

Happy weather = happy holidays

The Moai's progressing really nicely and I can't wait to see him finished.
The "foot vice" is very interesting and your foot seems to be done for it, as my job allow me to see !

The koru is even better when I got it in my hands, it was hard to give it back to you.

Well happy TC'ers! Thank you for paying attention to my work!!



Tikilizard: Thank's for stopping here and don't worry for my foot, I can also walk on embers...

Big T: Thank's for reply! Never drop a chisel! A good sharpening take too long time!!

Clarita: Always happy to see you around here! My creation still asleep, but maybe one
day...

BenZ: Don't be envious, your dream can become reality! I give course every friday afternoon on demand! You wrote "Nice to see Paipo showing some tool envy". Certainly really nice but, like you, I would prefer to see the Paipo's wood work! This is a CALL!!!

Watango: Thank's and cheers from the other side of our mother earth!

Seeksurf: Thank's for comment! Always appreciate from you.

Surfin': Thank's for LOUD reply!!!

Benjamin: Bientôt vacances, repos, ect... Cool! Next meeting maybe here!

Big daddy: Thank's for encouragement! You too keep up the good work!


Sorry, not much time to carve these last days, many major works in progress. Kavakava sleep a little... Just a new toolbox with, perhaps one day, decor Marquesan in "Lake" style:




Have a good night!

Jérôme.

Of Course another tool box is a Must! You make some of the Tightest tenon joints I've ever seen. The addition of the Marquesan decorations will definitely be a Plus. Don't let the Kava man sleep too long, he needs food more than sleep as he is Way too thin!

You're right BenZ! The kavakava has had enough of being extended to the bottom of the box ... it now stands after a few cuts, his eyes are empty and there is still much work to do on the back...



On the Bench two new ebony pieces almost finished.

Just one last pic for tool adict: a vintage router planer, ideal for smooth mortises funds... and unnecessary to carve whatever...



Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

Ah Yes, Kava man awakens, but will he find sustenance o fill his gaunt ribs, I think knot.
I don't know, I might be able to use that router plane on a piece some day, Ring it UP. "Yes honey, I Need that tool for a project."
