WOOOO! You guys are greattttt.
Tonight's the first night I get some rest! Big gig coming up this weekend, and into the studio saturday to record the song the "Grinch"! For an upcoming xmas compilation CD. Busy Busy. Which reminds me of a certain question for BENZARTTTTT! A certain guitar question...!
GROG, I love ya, ya ol' hairy back'd guy!
The only thing I've done lately is find a piece of KOA (Benz gave me) that would be PERFECT for a moai kava kava. Ooooo, I DID cut out an outline on a bone piece with the band saw recently.
So there ya go...I HAVE actually done SOMETHING.
sigh..
I love tiki central.
I wish it was a bar we can all walk into...every night...like a black hole or something. hee hee

Had a lovely piece of Butternut I had to use up. And until I come up with a place to carve bigger ones, I can carve some smaller guys. Just gettin underway on, anOTHer Tangaroan. I just love these.

Here's after using the angle grinder with a freestyle blade on it.



And a little finessing with some new tools from Christmas.

Grog-the-anti-Ruzic! I like the new name, quite catchy.
Those two Tangs are different, one is Butternut, and one is Basswood. The Basswood one is 9", and a tad bigger than the butternut. No more Butternut pieces left, I'll eventually get some more though, that's a good lookin wood.
Thanks Laojia, hopefully I'll be starting on it sooooon!
I did finally manage to find a small piece of time, and put my head to the grindstone. Did a little shaping on the Tangaroan mask, and doing a commission piece in bone...so I HAVE to get that done SOME time.
Mask..



The bone twist, which will get a shell inlay in there eventually...

The mask is looking nice, and that bone twist is taking shape perfectly. Plunge cutting with a bur, way to go!
