Thank's for words BenZ,
twin koru was made in wengé, I still have some pieces... "snake-biting-its-tail" is in pink ivory, later they will be separated. For now they are more useful attached, I hold the first to carve the second...

Holy Rare Wood, Jérôme, that Pink Ivory is amazing! Really beautiful carving going on here! Could you imagine doing a large tiki out of that stuff??? (If it wasn't one of the rarest woods on Earth, next to Snakewood, that is... about the only way of getting the pink stuff in logs is if an elephant accidentally knocks a tree over in Africa, no kidding.)

I say this gent is well on his way to a Three Pecker Award, which here on TC is a good thing. Is that Un Prix Royale de Trois Saucisse en Francaise?

Hi Jérôme,

Your work's cooler piece after piece, bro'. Those koru are really cool and the twin snakes are top shelf.
You've to tell me where you get this pink ivory, I swear I won't tell our secret

Good week-end,

Benjamin.

Cammo: I don't could imagine the price'wood for a large tiki in pink ivory!!! Anyway, even isn't the rarest wood (scarcity organized by the merchants for get up the price...) the pink ivory tree is so small... otherwise I never heard to talk for a "prix de trois saucisses" in this country Or so I did not understand everything...

Benjamin: Thank's for kind word...I'm ready to give the secret of my source for fine wood if you send me your last creation ...................................................
No shit, this is:
http://www.dick.biz/
You can order a free catalogue (very nice) here: http://www.dick.biz/dick/page/18_00_00_00_kataloge/detail.jsf

Tikiduddy: Thank's for comment's, I hope to post some following pics next week...

Have a good night
Jérôme.

Update of the friday morning!

Yesterday a shiny rising sun lights my little hall of fame:



"snake-biting-its-tail" work in progress



and finished with necklace, for my daughter



It's crazy as time have past on this piece...I do not see the end!



The other, more symmetrical with a different mode of necklace

even a small thing, just for fun...Soon I'll have glasses! Only carve with knive and riffler except eye drilling, pity that the jaw is a little short



Thank's for looking everyone.
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

What's the next step ? Rice carving ?
This skull is a perfect toggle for the snake pendant that is perfect too !

Bravo,

Benjamin.

Laojia, All those guys LooK Dynamite all standing around together like that, Excellent stuff


Of course we should Get a 50% discount on the Snake eating it's tail since by the time we get it half the tail will be gone and we should only have to pay half shipping too if half the dealie is gone hey?

Sounds right to me there Lad!

Just to ask a question first, where are those Japanese Carving Knives available from, somewhere n line? They really REALLY Lookgood.
Also if you are worried about the jaw being too short n that last little neat skull you could make the skull part smaller, raising yhe cheeks, narrowing the head and that would make the jaw much larger. You wouldn't have to remove any meat from the top of the skull(meat?lol). Personally It looks great to me. OR another thing you cold do would be to add some bone dentures, like real teeth! But again I love it the way it is.

- Only if I find grain rice bigger than my thumb!!

Seeksurf: big thank's, and the risk of repeating myself: what's the course of the quileute pole?

- Pleased to see that the surgery you do not remove the sense of business nor of humor!!!!
I have noted your advice to the skull, on this one here I was a little pressed.
Otherwise, I've find my carving knife by Dick.biz, fine woodworking tool and materials and seeking early here:

http://thejapanwoodworker.com/dept.asp?s=JapanWoodworker&mimid=TFRZ7HHA73W7QS93TODB010GIPPV3T2H&dept_id=13648
More expensive than Europe, certainly less shipping for US...
Or search with "Hiro"


Have a good night!

Jérôme.

If you are asking how it is going? Maybe over half done? or
the location of its permanent home that would be at the Tiki Bog.

Not sure what course means?
