Really sweeeeeet pendant! Getting a lot of use out of your electron microscope I see. Perfect detail down to the smallest of cuts except the one on your hand that is. That will be a great scar. Thought up any good stories for it yet? Saving a baby gazelle from a 20ft croc while you were big game hunting in Africa maybe? Great work as always!

That Lono turned out to good! I looove him, and the jade guy looks great too! I'm very glad to see you are better from that terrible cut. I won't say on fire, you are right,just in case.... but very inspired .
I'm still at bamboo camp, getting beaten up, but i think i'll survive... at list to see more of your updates, they are worth it

Bows, Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed the article, I just got mine today and was amazed at the love I felt reading it..I think, however, my Crooning days are over.

Watango, Thanks mate, for the kind words, glad you like my stuff.

Thanks Clarita! Yes the scar is all that remains except for some nerve stuff thats going away too.
Don't let those Bamboo Musicians take advantage of you, You're the boss, remember you can cut off theur hands if need be and Tell them that and maybe they will calm down.

As I said I received my copy of the Tiki Magazine today and I Really want to Thank you All for making me what I am today, it's all your doings. Big Thanks also to all you peeps who contributed to the article with all the kind words, you have no Idea how nice it felt, Thank you's to all you guys and girls. Special thanks also to Nick , Jon Paul and the rest of the crew and Andy too for spinning the tale.
Cheers,
Benzart

Benz congratulations!!!

You deserve it and if it wasn't for your constant support and help half of us would have given up a long time ago! You have constantly supported all of us on this thread and have answered every question, no matter how weird, I personally thank you for that. Congrats again, well deserved!

definitely my favorite issue yet. you deserve every nice word written about you, ben. you're what makes tiki central special to me, and i'm sure, so many others. your willingness to share your techniques, offer encouragement, and especially your kindness were some of the reasons i found tiki central the right place for me. i might go through periods when i don't post, but i'm always checking up on you, ben. not only are you the heart and soul of tc, but you are also one of its most talented artists with an inimitable style. mahalo for your true aloha spirit! oh yeah, crazy al's tiki corner was about my crazy al and kirby tikis. that was pretty cool too.

Thanks Amy, I appreciate your comments. I Really feel like you and all the other peeps are my personal students or My Kidz and to see you do well makes my days go so sweet.

Bullet, Thanks big time, either myself or any of the other carvers could not do it without all the constant support from you and other TCr's. You are special to me and one of my tiki friends no matter what. Thanks for your support, Glad you liked the story.

Thanks Again for everyone's suppport and recognition from this Tiki Mag article. It doesn't seem like it was Me there, who is the imposter?
I haven't been around much the ppast few days, still lingering in the shop re-do but I Have been carving a bit on several items. Here are a couple or 3 I have to show, one Non tiki included.

Just finished reading the Magazine. Great article about a great man. You always are positive and give great advice to all of us carvers, so all praise is deserved. I like the new pieces too. Have a great day.
