Conga today was the first time i scrolled through your work its very inspiring .



I still remember the first time I happened upon page one of your thread Conga. No one puts more "spirit" into a piece that you IMO. They have the same emotional impact on me as the pieces I see in the museums. Always a fan!

Wow, thanks AlohaTT, Amate and Hiltiki, you're gonna make me blush.

I appreciate your kind words, Amate, and I do try to make my pieces a
little spiritual, mysterious, etc.

Hiltiki, what can I say, I'm honored that you own one of my works

And, more "tiki" on the way soon!

Thanks Cy, actually I think I have more negative space than positive space in this one. I will have to post another pic to illustrate the point.

Anyhow, I am working on a nice chunk of cedar, and hoping to come up with something that has elements of tiki and what some of us might call tiki modern, I'm sure you've read the book





Also want to say this the "carving" thread seems to be getting fun again, sorta like the old days. If any of you other old timers are still around...chime in once in a while.

Looking forward to see the progress. I see that your a chisel guy. When carving Ice I was a old school chisel guy,
Every body switch to power, when carving Ice they have bits today that mimic chisels , Using chisels with Ice is easy because its like a shaving action, Chisels with wood is hammering and time consuming, But looking at your work the end results are very rewarding,

I thank you for the incoragement,

Thank you to the gentlemen from Texas, and Amate, happy that you like him. He's not quite finished,
but he's getting comfortable with some of the other characters around here


This just my second carving of the year, only 790 behind Nicework

I love carving little pieces of Basswood - My head would explode if I got a big piece! Seems like you need to pick up the pace to catch Nicework.
