Dave, that piece is incredible. One of the highlights of my trip to Tiki Oasis a few years back was to lay hands on your old walnut Maori panel (from the "Tiki Carving Methodology" thread) that is now in the hands of Hummuhummu. It's always nice to look at, but always better to feel a carving. But this piece looks like it will surpass that one, and you are in fine form these days my friend.

Just curious - what is the offset for between the handle and the blade on the third chisel from the right? What does that do?

It looks like a chisel from a mortiser. They're used with a special drillbit to create square holes in wood. Very specialized tool.

It's just a 3/4" deep-bend straight chisel if you ask me...I've found it gets in some places that are hard to reach. It's a Buck Brothers from around 1890...you can shave your face with it!. It also is great for smoothing floor areas in deeper relief.

Sorry BK, I was focusing on what was next to the handle of that chisel. I use a mortiser at work, that's why I was surprised to see it with all the carving tools.

Hey BK. Just going back to wahine involvement for a bit: I was very surprised to find the HOD & main tutors were women when I started a pounamu carving course a few years ago. This course had involvement by local iwi when it was first being established, so theres your proof that times have changed... Some damn good she-carvers around here too.
*Not very well versed in the protocol of whakairo but I understand that all wood shavings were collected & ceremonially burned/buried also to ensure they werent used in any mataku/black magic.
Cant wait to see this one finished - Can I ask where is it going? TTT

Oh, Yeah! That is a mortising tool. Makes a perfect littlebox cut when chipcarving!

I'd love to take a course like that in New Zealand! It's headed for the Kingstiedye collection...more pics tonight! Speaking of she-carvers, whatever happened to our Dawna? Must've gotten hitched!

Ignore the video..Listen, close your eyes and pretend that you are a British soldier in 1845. There are probably 1000 warriors in front of that Pa. You have (1) round in that Enfield rifle. It takes you 30 seconds to load the next one.....I love Hakas.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6MjxndCojs&search=Haka%20Dance
