Well, it's spring time. And that means.... Allergy Season!

Got a couple of new things in the works, just haven't posted any pics. The mask looks good. You've got some nice tools there! Is that a steel mallot?? Do you use it like any other mallot?

Hi Clarita! Thank's for the comp' and the support for the event!

Hi BigT, allergy season, damn... strongly summer! Can't wait your new work... Thank's for the comp' on the mask! In fact, it is my collaborative pieces for an other project... Other details soon.
For the mallet (mallot!?!) I use a brass mallet, very good sensation of weight, and a composite mallet lighter but very good for roughing. This one in the middle is made of ashtree, made by my father on his lathe, pretty but too light.





Well... New from the bench:


My wife's Hei Matau finally lashing with grenadill Hei Tiki:



Back view, the other hand...


In the sunset, just for the shade of wood...



An other guy in grenadill, first time I work with dremel in my carving for the Hei Matau and the shoulder tatoo.



Thank's for looking!
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

A lil' friday update...

"This one really takes the Cake!" What this? In any case thank's for your kind word sensei carver! I'm really glad you've finally finished this Lono, it motivates me to finish mine too when I realized that there is still a long way to go...

Hey Bennno!!! Thank you! But I still much uncertainty with this tool ... And then it's too noisy.

CreativeChimp, thank's for your comp'. Me too, I'm always glad to see your work!

Seeksurf, thank you! My treasures are small beside those of tiki bog... I'm glad to see that the heydays inspire you create new.


Pics of the Day: last Blackwood pendant in our "mirabellier" in bloom, a local plum tree.





Have a nice day!

Jérôme.
