As always, super pieces with an increadible steady hand. You certainly have a talent for fairing all those curves together.

Thanks Johnny, the curves are not so long on the small pieces so are easier, right??
Here are updates from yesterday.

Top shelf for the manaia! The inlay give him a beautiful finishing touch! Excelent!
I guess the number of hours of sanding and polishing on this piece...

Is that you put an ear pendant on this fabulous Maori head? I see a hole...

Ben, your pieces always amaze me. I think it's not that you carve so damn small, you just got GIANT fingers! That Manaia cab is eerily small. Great stuff.
