Thank you BK and Kaha ki'i on the tips for the bone, I may give this a try, but neither of you have to worry about me taking sales away. BK your work is top shelf.

BK, the bone carvings are amazing. So, what tools are you using for these? Don't tell me palm chisels??? Dremel type tools maybe? The smell must be like burning chicken feathers. Amazing Maori stylings, BK! Mahalo.

If you like Flea markets you can always find the tools for creating anything. Have a pocket(s) full of change and don't forget to haggle

I went through your thread here and it looks like you've just about made a little bit of everything, you work with a lot of different mediums I see.

By the way, what is your favorite medium you like to work with? Bone? Wood? Something else?

Hi, Bete. Probably wood. Just because it's the old stand by and has been my happy hunting ground for years.

I swear, it must be something in the southern waters that makes everybody master carvers and makes me feel so worthless.
The water down there will either make you old, or gay, or a master, creative carving son of a...send me some water. My luck I'd be old, gay and pick up a paint by numbers set.
Great work as always Basement. Did ya get the p.m. I sent ya about a month ago?

Reminds me of a Purple Jade necklace only in crisp bone. I think I like this one the best too. Just like this sort of tiki better.
