"It's supposed to look like a carved Coconut Monkey."
Some coconut should be so lucky to get a carve so good.
That texture is perfect.The eyes, teeth, wow.
And what are we gonna keep in there ?

Bai,,, Don't Die,, I Promise I'll make you one Thanks for the "Love".

Mijaba, thanks, yeah, it seems you ARE right again.

Thanks Kirby, each tooth individually carved from wart hog tusk.

Thanks C Chimp, Appreciate the "Love your Monkey" comment! Funny.

Thanks Hiltiki, maybe I'll carve you one from a coconut I have here in the shop??

Thanks Kino,, IF you are ever here in these parts,, C'Mon in!

Thanks Jerome, Yes it is tight, you can remove it if you can get your fingernail in to pry it open, Thanks.

The monkey is really cool. You always pack so much character into your small pieces. Amazing work.

It is really cool to see the wide range you have Ben. Dolphins, monkeys and moai with birds nesting in their topknots!

Tiki got me into carving, but like you I love pretty much any subject now as long as it involves carving.

The detail you pack into such small pieces is amazing, and the latest works are no exception!

Thanks for the inspiration you provide!

Thanks Lake, I just love trying different stuff.
Just finished up a small Lono carved from a Foxtail Palm Frond, or at least the bottom 6 inches. This was really Hard stuff and really strong, reminded me of bamboo.
