it's great too see ya cranking 'em out ben! the marq is beautiful and an amazing rescue with the comb. the hawaiian warrior was a great concept and execution. especially that face! bravo! the signatures are works of art too. now let's get another look at the lono you were working on.

What you guys haven't seen is the smaller duplicate head that he carved Saturday(?) morning next to the pool. Come on Benz put some wax on it and share with the rest of the class.

Thanks T-Pak, Oh darn I almost forgot about # 100, guess I'll have to skip a few numbers, glad you like this stuff. See 'ya soon.



Benz, did you skip over the #100? I loved that comb, it would have been a nice hair piece for sure. And the smile on it reminded me of the class clown. Nice work... I suppose you dropped it and the comb broke? You're like that energizer bunny, you just keep going & going.. And we wouldn't have it any other way..

Now this was a really quickie for sure.. Must be nice to be this talented and whip these things up so quickly and with such detail.. Keep up the good work my friend.

Wow another amazing piece of Art. This inlay gives him great character.
As i now understand how to create a chord the right way, I suggest you send him over to me for a finishing touch
