Number one ranked team in the damned country, Sports Illustrated cover, and how do they handle it? Like college football players. I just hope there is a team once they get through.

Ben, that be a live cat...14 years my companion. I love 'er. Terrace..are you serious? That's a heck of a compliment even if not. Hope all is well in everybody's neck of the woods. Had to take a shop break for a few weeks to avoid severe burnout. But my tiki batteries are nearing full again!

Forgot to mention to my newer TC friends- I also have a myspace page now which has sort of eclipsed the old web site (I closed it for now). Here is a link, folks. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=279603638 _________________

BK, I Really Love your Bone Pieces, I just feel something with then I don't get with your other stuff, It's Different and you should be doing Lots of these type pieces. Actually HAppy happyHAppy to be seeing you post again and with fully charged tiki batteries hopefully well be seeing more goodies from the Master again soon? I for one would really love to see a few progress shots so I could see the steps taken to get your final beauty in place. Also I Love the coloring and I have yet to color but one bone piece and would like to see the right way to do it!
Thanks.

Thanks, Ben..To me the flow is definitely different and somewhat challenging in bone, and flow is what any good piece is all about.. It takes a lot more of a tongue-in-cheek approach in a 2 to 3 inch piece of stock. Definitely my new favorite material.

Very nice work. It almost looks too perfect. You sure you didn't pick that up in New Zealand?
Seriously, it's fantastic.
