I take it that's the tiki equivalent of a bowling ball bag so you can safely carry your favourite mug to the local bar or is it just a bamboo purse.
If the former I can just see them being a major accesorie at any tiki event with a personalised name on them.

Ben's stuff is better than that! Nobody even bothered to carve the back of that thing!

Thanks Tikiwahine, yes I'll be at HukiLau this year. can't wait to meet you and SO Many other TC'rs.
Swank, that Elvis tiki at first did look like a Benzart until I brightened it enough to see it. Maybe I should raise my prices some,,no a LOT. I can see it now . Benzart pendant going for Only $3500, Act soon. Right.
Thanks for posting that neat find.

Thanks SallyandJay. Looks kike I'll be making 3 or 4 more. Some will bw different dimensions depending on the bamboo sections , some are longer and fatter, and it depends on if I can get any more bamboo.
Meanwhile I have shrunken heads, Cannibal maoris, Moai's and stuff to do.

Back to reALITY, HERE IS ANOTHER SHRUNKEN HEAD. HE TOO NEEDS STITCHES AND HAIR






This wood is purple Heart and is very hard. Woodcarving tools do not work on this stuff you need metal working tools and it dulls them right away, If I ever carve ant=ything else with this wood, it will be very small...

Ah, I remember falling in love with the purple heart wood, and a number of other woods, when I was shopping for wood for my bar. Great to see it in action, in the hands of a pro, no less.

Hey Ben you think I could get me Cannibal in that Purple Heart wood?? Just kidding, beautiful wood though, why do the best looking ones always have to be the hardest?
