Hey BK, I took the time to goe thru all these pages. It is amazing what you have accomplished in the last years. I love your sense of detail and great feeling for the polynesian culture. Hope to get the chance to interview you one day about it. Keep up also the charming combat poses.

Really excellent work

The fish traps are cool!

But I want to see the finished Tripod-a-roa in tha top pic there. I'm getting ready to start carving one of those.

Thanks for posting.

I like the fish trap shades. I see you are using bamboo. In one of your early posts I saw a few in the background and from the detail of the photo I thought they looked like "regular" wood. Have you made any with wood? Any success? Tips?

Thanks
JP

Here is a piece of bone jewelry I carved for Tallaluna for our anniversary. It's a Maori Teko Teko, Lakes area style. It measures about 2 inches. The inlays are very special...they are made of very precious abalone-that was gathered and cut by Eli Hedley! Bambooben sent me a portion of a small amount he found in his mom's attic. It polishes up beautifully.. The tiki mana is very strong in this stuff. I wouldn't have felt right if I hadn't given Eli himself credit for the beautiful abalone, so I gave a dual billing where my signature normally is... Aloha!

Doggone BK, I didn't know you went into the jewelry realm. I'm not surprised though. Damn nice piece! The mana makes it treasure.

Here is a Kini Kini I just completed...close relative of the Cula Cula (but with no crossguard and less geometric) and named in many different forms, from the stretched spadelike blade such as the one seen here to the ray shaped club as I and recently Tikimecula have carved. I like this one...stylized fish, birds, and ocean waves...lots of eye candy. This one is already sold, but I'll be doing another couple of clubs (actually 3 Salis!) as soon as I'm done with a tiki I'm about to start.

BK, I Love this KiniKini club. Lots'a fine detail for sure. Excellent work on that. Excellent Bone piece too. Once you get used to carving the bone, they will be Dynamite.
Nice to have you back carving!
