Mahalo Octane... would love scans of those detailed instructions...

I can kind of see how to go about the Dragon's Tooth but the spirals look like they will take some practice... let me know if you get those scans!

Octane, I'm really happy to see you doing these Maori carvings. it shows you have great skill and your attenton to detail will only get better and better for it. The New Zealanders wood carving were second to none( Except for our GECKO) and are based around the simple, beautiful spiral of their Fern Tree.

Lake i forgot to tell you you nedd two different types of V shaped chisels. i will try to get those pages re-scanned and i will include the section on the types of chisels needed.

Thank you Ben, i agree that the Maori are the greatest carvers, at least i have ever seen, their work is amazing, the detail and all the diffrent surface deceration is wow.

TNT Tiki:
Tiki and Baseball, sure nothing wrong with that, not in my eyes, i'm a huge sports fan, mostly football, but i like baseball as well (Red Sox fan). I could be interested in trying it. I have no idea about what it would cost, but email me at owen_turner99 at hotmail and we can talk over the details of what you want so i can get a better idea of what exactly your looking for (were on the handle or ball bat, what style of tiki, and so on) then i can give you a definate answer.

progress on the Maori panel. Those Maori just put too much detail on their stuff, which is nice because it is challanging but it gets alittle over whelming at times.

thanks TNT Tiki, it was alot of work i had to have some medacine for my back tonight (two Mai Tais):)

BK, thank you, words from a true chisel master like yourself are held in high regards. By the way most of those chops you say i have, can be attributed to you for answering all my questions when i first joined the forum, the great in progress and finish pictures of your work, and the help/discriptions of techniques from the old carving post days.

here is pictures of tikiville slugger bat. it is a set of pictures from the start to the finish (or at least what i'v done so far) It is a Marquesan style tiki. the tiki is on one side of the bat, while the other holds the standard bat shape, including all the various symbols and brand name.
