Hey Ben,

I took #10 with me on my excursion to Hale Tiki to meet some of the TCers. He had a great time and got much attention.

I'm glae you both had a great time. At first I said "I never sold anything to Raffertiki", Then the next day I remembered Raffertiki was once a Nice Fishy.. I'm a little slow.
For those of you waiting for Maori's, I seem to be cursed by the maori. Every piece I start looks like Crap. Maybe it is the piece of Maple I have been using, I don't know Look
at these*&%^$#)###&*(*'s of crap.
Think I'll start with a fresh slab of Cherry.
This ever happened to any other carvers out there? If so how do you fix it?

Hey Benz,

I've been playing around, carving masks out of black maple. Nice grain. I have some cut off pieces that are too small for me to use, but might be perfect for you. Let me know if you can use them, and I'll send them right out.

Yeah...kinda has a milky look to it. I sanded and sanded and sanded, and it just got worse. I didn't have any sandpaper finer than 220 tho, so maybe something finer than that?

Although, Ben (and I'll be the first to say it) your "crap" looks like diamonds to me. Could be taken several different ways, but I'm going to say it anyway...and I'm stickin' to it!

#27 is finally doneHe tookthree times as long as normalbecause I put far too much detail in the facial moko. I won't bendoing that again unless I find a quicker way,
This is 3" tall by 2 " wided. He is the chocolate maple and will turn darker with age(Days).
Bigbrotiki wants one similar and he gets first shotat it. after thatit's up for grabs,


The depth of detail is greater than previous pieces.
I think it is time to hit the hay.
Goodnight all. Wish I had those tiki sheets so I could dream Tiki Dreams.

Its always great to see the variety in your work Ben. Different materials and different styles make it all very refreshing.

Someday I will have to get one of your works. Maybe a trade will suffice. Do you need anything framed?

Thanks, Monkeyman. One of these days when I trade FlounderArt for a Burlap, I'llneed the perfect frame, then we can trade for sure. Then theres Kooche, Chongolio, A Gecko Velvet plus a few. I think I will leave Hukilau with some work for you to trade for.

Thank you.
