How did...?! That's killer. I can't even see stuff that small. Now the tough question - which species was each carving?

Nice work Aloha! I finally got around to trying my hand at one of those fronds. The knife work is a whole new skill set and not as easy as it looks.

I just finished this one. Ironically, I was just commissioned to carve a cannibal pendant. I think its a little big, but you'll never notice once you get a few drinks in ya.



Carved in a soggy, rotten, stinking, nasty palm. It actually turned out rather nice - considering.

Here's my latest palm frond. It will be a necklace for Swizzle. I swapped a Bob-O-Nut mug with him at the Hukilau. I've got a lot more to do to it.



I also took a few minutes to experiment with a water melon. How often does it work out when you start off describing "I saw this on the interwebz and had to try it". Carved for about 30 minutes - till we got hungry and ate it!
