Thanks Tikigodz, we might be able to work something out when I get caught up, Thanks for the kind words!

Thanks Creative Chimp, funny, my mom Always thought I'd be a surgeon,, Carving small is no big deal when you have the bench pin on your work bench to hold the work on. It gives you stability and eliminates the shakes, they fit into a rectangular hole cut into your bench.

Thanks Conga,, Big Cheese,, is that Swiss, cheddar or the "cut cheeze"
I appreciate your thinking old man, when you coming to Florida to get some sand in your shoes????
The Orange Blossom Special has a ticket waiting for'ya!!

Thanks for the Bumps Laojia and Clarita, My Bad for not being around much lately!
Thanks for checking up Wendy, bring me smiles, you do and Clarita too..
Hotiki, WOW,, Didn't even know,, Snuck right up on me when I wasn't looking.
PAIPOPAIPOPAIPO, Thanks for the recognition,,Celebratory peace?? Yeah, seems we need some around here but not here.
Well I Did finish that Redwood Moai and I kept looking at him and thinking the ancients weren't done yet. I tried to ship him out but couldn't and I FINALLY Saw what they wanted so I built a birds nest on top of his hat and put in a small Ivory Bird and I guess that made the Birdmen Ancients happy because I was Able to ship him the next day,,,Seriously, thats how he got the nest in his hair.










Then My Rock and Gem Club has been asking me to do a carving class and finally I agreed to see if there was interest so I got some Soapstone and did a carving demo at our yearly Gem show this past weekend and this is what I ended up with using mostly hand files and and scrapers. Not very tiki but definitely Pacific.
Oh Yeah, There was plenty interest so there will be a class starting in January!







OH Yeah and I Almost forgot,,, A MONKEY! Someone wanted a copy of their Old Carved Coconut Monkey.
ORIGINAL

That is one crazy birdman Moai, you are gonna raise the bar so high
that even you won't be able to reach it
On second thought...I don't think the bar can be raised that high!

Oh wow i love the Redwood Moai, such a great and neat carve, very expressive, he's almost perfect, but the ancients were right, that nest make him totally perfect, because he is such a great carve that he's a little to serious , but that nest brings the perfect mix between to great and serious with a wink of joy and smiles, awesome, couldn't be any better now

That Moai is outstanding. I didn't think it could be improved upon but I guess I should know better. Can you recomend a source for the soapstone. A got a variety pack from the craft store but was disappointed with it. I'm looking at an internet vendor who offers Brazillian, Montanan, and East Indian. Any thoughts?

Thanks Conga, yeah, the bar,, Think it fell off and hit me in the head!!

Clarita,, Thanks for the kind words, you make him sound cool!

Jerome, funny you should ask,, About the ark,, gave it some thought and decided they Already had too many of Some animals and gave up on it. Glad you like the stuff.

Amate, Thanks Much. As for soapstone, this is the first piece I've carved but I Know there are many others with nice colors, however think I will try some Alabaster next, I hear it is More beautiful and sometimes translucent with great coloring And a bit harder and easier to carve. The soft Soapstone is just about like carving chalk, it eally crumbles away if you aren't careful.
