Beautiful work, BK. From the big to the small, you have an amazing eye for detail, fluidity and "life". Thanks for posting more of your work.

I love that bar! Totally old school looking craftmanship.

Hi BK, Wonderful pieces youve done. Im particularly intrigued by those bone carvings. Is bone carved using a flow of water as you do with the jade? What kind of bone do you use?

Hi, Miss BP.. I use cowbone, mammoth ivory, fossil bone, generally whatever's procurable. Mostly cowbone. Bone you can carve without water flow. Think of soap, if you increased the hardness factor by, say, ten or fifteen times. It's a very workable material. The pieces you can usually get will challenge your acumen for working in miniature, but one you have the eyes and hands used to it it's quite fun. I'd reccomend using a downdraft fan..it smells when carving it...like burning flesh. Cabanilla Makau here, Vincent, is a very good reference on bone. He's forgortten more than nost of us will ever know! Aloha.

Damn BK, you know I think the world of you and your skills. That BIG Marq has me wondering why there isn't one just like it from you flanking my bar. Wayne Coombs is doin' something very special for me right now. Bigger than life, just like him (well, not bigger than him). I swear man, you're next, when you're available and when I can do it. The spirit of all the great tiki carvers of the past lives in you my friend.

Thanks, all. It always means a lot. If I ever had a complaint about doing this for a living, the appreciation of the folks out there set me straight right off the bat. It's a blessing to do.

Dear Basement Kahuna,
Fantastic Taiaha you carved, do you know how to use it? What kind of wood did you use? Any power tool?
Thanks and sorry for all the questions.
Hugs,
Sebas

In the first picture, the feathers look like a Ren Clark Severed head mug. The colors are the same. Everything great.
