T-Gap, Thanks man, I appreciate that but, I'll just take my chances without the glove, although I Have been wearing a glove while I still have the stitches.

Thanks Seeks, well this happened while I Wasn't carving although the beast Was a carving knife but Not the Dreaded Hook. I should get the stitches out tomorrow and be free!

Meanwhile I'm almost finished with this Lono for bullet.
It is KOA Wood and about 4" tall. Still have clean-up and a bit of details left to do
It seems to be VERY Un-Photogenic.

Wow Ben, look at that! Of course, I have to comment on that tounge. I love the odd shaped wood and how you used it to your advantage.
Good to see you're healing up, but that wound still looks pretty nasty. Don't over do it, my friend!

Yikes, those stitches are as ugly as that Lono is beautiful - quite a contrast. I'm glad you're better snd healing. That looks like it might have hurt just a little.

Blood, sweat and tears....It shows in all of your work but that one definitely carries your mojo.... another great piece just as expected... (bowing to the master).

I like your Maori heads, but YOUR tiki designs are much better!!! Love the tongue on the Lono.

what a beautiful piece Ben...

and what kind of sewing kit did they use with you?

Hard to see... looks like a good job anyway, but give to your hand the time to fix well !

A big kiss from Sicily Island!

I lOve the mini headdress! But it's ALL just perfect
Now, about your hand,
when I was a kid I loved this sign a neighbor had on his wall...
"two rules you must never bend,
never whittle toward yourself,
or piss against the wind".
