You're on FIRE!! Great carves going there. And I have been waiting for the right piece of wood, to do one of those Easter Island figurines as well.(forgot the name of it, I'm at work, don't have a book to go look it up quick!)

What reference book are you using? What a great start and sequence shots. Looks like hard to carve walnut. can't wait to see the progress on this very detailed guy. Keep up the great work and happy carving.

Thank's for the comps dear TC'ers!

CChimp:I appreciate your compliments and sorry to put no more pics but they are faster than wood carving.

Surfintiki: You're on fire too! The moai kavakava take some delay, I've full work this week and I prepare an other piece for the hewey's swap, dead line end of june!

Benella: Thank you, soon you will know all my secret techniques...

Tiki lizard: Thank's for reply, I've not full own book of reference but I live in a town where libraries are well supplied. Walnut is very easy to carve compare with pink ivory (density 990 kg/m3!)

Seeksurf: Thank's for the comp pole caver!

Last weekend I finally took the time to arrange the workshop, is the first time he arranged for over 2 years since we live here:





But this sort of thing never lasts...



Have a good day!

Jérôme.

What a great workspace...I'm jealous. Looks like you have plenty of space to stretch out and work on all kinds of projects at once. Great first cuts on the Moai Kavakava too - I can't wait to see some more progress on him. I've been wanting to make one for a long time now but I'm not ready yet!

Hi TC'ers

Thank you very much everyone (Tmec/bagauda/bigT/Rainhawk/Seeksurf/Benno/BD/Paipo) for the kind word about my workshop... But this pictures is possible once a year! Today is already an incredible mess, with log just begining, bikes, baby chair, furniture in progress, pieces of machine for repair, and and and.....

Bagauda: MP sous peu, a+
Rainhawk: pink Ivory is the common name for a tree south african , "berchemya zehery" for the botanist. Your terrific video, inspire me. I've find a hunk of bone, also maybe I will try one day...
Paipo: Your comment for kava kava has been very valuable, and for the workshop do not be jealous: he's nice but too far of beach and océan...

This week the Moai KavaKava has progress slowly (no pics, sorry), and the little beast, in fact a free interpretation of manaia is finished:

front


back, tail folded




My wife noticed it made me look like a drawing by Roland Topor

actually, she was right

pictures from the animation movie "la planete sauvage" by René Laloux and Roland Topor, 1973.

Have a nice day!


Jérôme.
