Thanks Thantos, Maybe we can get together at Hukilau or sooner we'l see what comes 'round

Thanks to you too Sam, I Love adding a twist and turn when I can, Uusally I am limited by the size of the wood but this time I said screw it I'm gonna make it smaller than the wood but add more interest.

Rodeo, thanks for the "WOW"

McTiki,thanks I'm a real sewwtaholic I guess and it is so much more fun to really dig into the detail.

Thanks Turbogod, on my list you are, much appreatited.

Aarojn, what can I say. I was never 1 to make hundreds of the same face. They all have to outdo each other for some reason, I think the ancien ones are playing around with me just for their amusement.

TikiG, looks like you may find out about the larger ones. I have 3 5' palm logs that I Hope to take to Hukilau all carved up.
Thanks to everyone for your response.
I may have to take a few days off with severly bruised ribs. Nothing major. i'll be fine after a weeks rest.

Ben, love those latest carvings. I still need to add some more benzart pendants to my collection. I finally got a couple of Tiki Tony pendants at Oasis, long overdue.

Ben,

Is that last one laughing or crying? I look at his squinted eyes and I cant make up my mind.

Wonderful as always.

The curve, the curve! Yes, I love it too. Also that repeated diamond pattern looks really nice. Hmmmm... and how are the others coming?
