the arero is quite different than mine. both have the same smooth lines. both are astounding pieces of art. the man is a true talent.

when you show that kind consistency in your art is shows you've truly mastered it.

Interesting! I had never heard these methods.. only the fire and smoke hardening. Great to get info from these old carvers. These really are lost art forms. True...patience is a virtue when carving anything as we all know. The walnut used here was part of a ridge of old growth that was cut near Franklin North Carolina long ago. This tree was 200-plus years old when cut. I have had it pressed in my stock pile along with a few other pieces for 7 years. Not quite the same process, but not quite the same geography. I am literally tracing around tracings to get the maximum use out of all of it I can..It's beautiful stuff, but Taiaha sized lengths are something I have to pull everything out to find anymore. I heard also that there is a species of Podocarpus that grows in New Zealand that was used for weapons. I would love to get my hands on some of those woods to try them on for size. I could do a lot with them. For now I used the prettiest and cleanest woods I can find around here._______________
The Cockeyed Mayor Of CarvaKaKai.



Hey BK, The Podocarpus is called the Totara in NZ, another strain of podocarpus. I have a few pieces of trunk about 4 to 5" in diameter and maybe 3 feet long. It's yours if you want one just let me know and remind me just before Hukilau and I'll bring it down. I've carved it 2 feet in diameter so it Does happen here but not often.
My stock is from a hurricane we all knew personally.

Absolutely, Ben..I'll take all you're willing to spare. I have a small piece from Jungle Jim but it's only good for a tiny weapon. Thanks, BFAM!

Here's a new piece...Just put this one for sale on marketplace for 165 (ten-plus hours of work!!) A Maori style pendant carved by me in bone depicting two Manaia with unusually large openwork. Pretty "pupil" style Green Abalone inlay and nicely patinaed to look ancient, the way we like them! It's a bigger piece, 3 3/8 inches.

Beautiful pendant! How did you do the petina to make it look so old? I've been trying some tea stains but it does'nt seem to stick on well.

use tea in vinegar. the vinegar reacts with the calcium in bone like it does with easter egg shells.
