Thanks Amate, I appreciate your words of wisdom. Most of the time I prefer the wood too but a couple years ago a couple friends twisted my arm and got me started carving jade and stone and it's like a real battle between the 3 of them and then some bone was thrown into the mix and in many ways bone wins out because it demands all your skills but I really like the media I am carving at the time the most. It's like I'm being torn between them all?

Buzzard, Thanks,, More tools wins All the time! What you need for stone is a water drip/siphon system (bucket with tiny hose) to keep the burs cool .

C'Al, Thanks for the pic, He can't Help but smile with you standing next to him!

Jerome, Thanks for checking inn.

Marcus, Thanks, but I think I'll leave the giant guys to you guys.
You are doing super well enough with them!

Kino, Well I thanks toy too! (Watch that dropped Jaw, it attracts flies.)

Thanks everyone, had a real mean back recently but am feeling better some. Here is some more work on the jade I started awhile ago.
Long way to go yet but I think he'll make it all right.

A fine jade master piece, sensei carver. Can't wait to see the moko finished!
Yesterday, I wondered where had been forgotten the great tusk started some time ago... I am happy today to see the progress pics.

I stay tuned sensei carver!

Thanks Tikigodz, I will get together a tool post for the tools thread, also for the stone carvers thread.

Thanks Jerome, I had not forgotten this guy, just had him on the back burner for awhile.

Thanks Tiki Godz, and yes I'll be posting more tools pages soon.

Jerome, thanks, I'm still learning and from all you guys too!

Here is a short update. All these lines are preliminary and need widening and cleaning as well as more depth.

Another incredable carving and even more Amazing to see in person. See ya tommarrow got a lono mask and maybe a drum if I get off my butt n carve today. Your one talented person but not as creative as that boy of ours Ryan and his drywall art!!! Aparently it's a New medium carving Drywall!!!! Ahhhhhh sorry got to go and fix some drywall! Lol
