Aarons, Thank you, but its You guys who have ME Spoiled I Have to get each new piece deeper and more intricate to make you all happy. Well I must do it for myself too so I don't get bored.

Mooney, Thanks for the visit and you can bring the kids Any time, they were great. Yes that little Ryan is a Tool Junkie Already at 4. You are definitely gonna have your hands full with that boy. He'll be ready for the hook knife lesson in about a year? C'mon Over anytime!

Wow....great finishing touches on the Lono. The amazing Ben strikes again.
And the Mrs. Conga loves the eagle...your photos are super but nothing
beats having a Benzart in the hand...or around the neck.

Thanks Conga, Glad she liked it. The Lono is beating the crap outta me, Still stuck on it but getting closer.Thanks for the kind words.

Hey Hank, This guy is way too big for the Altoid box, I'll have to find something else. Seems I'm still stuck on this guy, Sorry about that! SOON though as there's about Nothing else I can do to him.

Kinny, Thanks,Many times over. You really know how to make a guy feel good. Hopefully this cross culture bony lono survives my bench!

Heres Another update and you can see where he needs to be o cleaned up and Sanded, sanded and sanded some more.
