wow benz,
great work. when i can get detail that fine on as small a piece as that, i'll sit back and think "now i'm only half as good as the master". i bow to the east, in your direction. once again great work.

well, i finally put down lono long enough to post. this is truly an amazing piece. there's not really a straight on view. well there is, but with a very slight turn either way it becomes a profile. that's because of the triangular shape of the wood. the details are incredible! i'm so glad the gator tooth was crying to be carved too, cuz it's a piece of art in itself. this is my 6th benzart pendant plus i have a small tiki. with all the others i was just in the right place at the right time. lono is the first piece ben made especially for me and i couldn't be happier! mahalo ben!

Big Daddy, Thanks for the praise, but don't bow down to me, save that for the real master who lurks about. I'm only Half as good as the Master who taught me a Lot in the short year I worked with him. Mostly I have learned from the likes of you and All the other TC Artists. I see your great moves and I also see your mistakes as well as my own. I've a Long way to go to be The Master!

Thanks Bullet. "there's not really a straight on view. well there is, but with a very slight turn either way it becomes a profile. that's because of the triangular shape of the wood. ".......
This guy is Difficult to photograph for the same reason but you got some excellent shots anyway Thanks for the heads up he arrived OK and I'm Really Happy you like him. I think you own more Benzarts than any one person, Thanks again.

Kustom Tiki, Thanks for the kind words, I'm sure Bullet has much security unseen to protect his Lono!

Bullet, Yep I knew that. See Kustom? "o

LLT, Thanks Kinny,the Maori gleams so because he has received More Hand sanding and polishing than Any Benzart jade to date. Also I spent More time on this guy than I should have. Paipo must have been looking over my shoulder giving me the correct lessons, Thanks Paipo.

Here is the FINAL result of way too much time spent on this guy. All day yesterday was used teasing this guy, and cleaning everywhere. Just Crazy and just watch me do it again,,,NOT!

that's funny cuz paipo and basement kahuna told me the same thing! i must have really good taste! i'm still hoping for a big benzart someday. the jade maori was worth the time and effort cuz he came out beautifully. the gator tooth toggles are a fantastic touch.

Excellent as usual Benzart! My hands are cramping just thinking of all the hand sanding YOU did. The extra time and effort really shows.

Number 104 is my favorite for now. Pics dont do you stuff justice, Ben. they have to be seen and handled in person. Thanks for sharing with us at the S. Fla carvathon.

I am proud to know you and thankful for your ability to instruct, educate and encourage others to be like you.

I'm left speechless about the Maori jade. Congrats on finishing it. It should be museum bound!
