Mahalos for all the compliments. It means alot to me and some times helps me get motivated. I kick myself for not photographing more work.

Thanks again for looking and I'll post some more real soon.

Mahalos Benzart, 4WDtiki and LaoJia,

The wood is African Mahogany and is a real pleasure to work after carving that stone like Monkey Pod (albizia saman) and burled Mango. I bought the wood and I usualy prefer free Maui grown material but there is something to be said for kiln dried wood.

Mahalos for looking I'll post some more shots after it's finished.
Now back to the sanding, Yay. sanding.

So what's good carvin wood that grows local? Palms?

I never would have guessed that monkeypod is real hard. I only see the bowls and stuff in the thrift stores, and they're smooth and light, I figured it would carve like butter!
