Thanks Harro for the chime in, and support!
Well, what an adventure it's been. It looked SO EASY. But what a mess. First the shell broke in half, I barely touched it! The stuff is extremely brittle. Figured I'd glue it in in 2 sections. Used epoxy, put too much on, where it blorped all over the place. Got on my fingers, and then it went everywhere. The epoxy caused some kind of reaction to the shell too, which made it crack and break in SEVERAL places. At this point I would of felt much more satisfaction throwing it at the wall.
Well next morning I sanded off all the excess glue, and it looks passable. It's only for me to wear, so no biggy. It's my first inlay, lotsa lessons learned, and only #2 for carved bone.
Soon I will get at GOOD 'OL LOGS O' WOOD.







Aloha me mates!

This bone looks very nice. Very neat. I can see you've spend a lot of time and attention.
Did I read you come back to woodcarving ? Happy Happy Happy

Conga! Thanks, it's funny, our dog chewed on this bone first! We both got something out of this bone.
Benella! Thanks. Oh yeah, got a million ideas, and 2 pieces of cedar getting good and dry for me.
Freddie B! Watsup chief! Mahalo bro.
Sneakytiki! Thanx, glad you like!
Ohhhhh Benz! That is a definite idea, coming down. Not so good on $ now though, will need to save NOW for Hukilau in June. I wanna get Swirly! Sherry will have to pick me up off the floor!
The hook looks better in person, actually...than in the crack revealing photos. I just had to finish 'er and MOVE ON! I wanna get to the wee-turtle, and the hammerhead, then back to wood.
ALOHA

Thanks Lake, my good man. The weather here has just SUCKED, not thinking 'bout surfing here lately. How 'bout the next Hukilau be in Hawaii!!!
You've been cranking all year long man, you've been quite an inspiration to us all. Cheers to you in the new year!
Alohaaaaa...Danka! Hopefully I'll get back to it soon, with some detail.
