Cap't Skully came up yesterday for a carving session and brought a tiki ha has been hiding from us. I will post pic's of it in a minute. We had a great time and he was able to put up with me for 3 or 4 hours and fortunately it was an Overcast cool(83 deg) day and we didn't burn up. Skully is a very precise carver, much like Aarons Aku and has a great eye for detail. look for excellent pieces from him in the future.
Here are a couple shots of his tiki



Enjoy, Sorry eric...I had to do it.

I would have gave up three to four hours to watch the magic. Nice start on the log.

Nice start! And it does look precise and clean. I just wack away at it but it looks like you put a lot of forethought into it. Thats Great "Measure twice, cut once"

I like the fiberous palm bark on the bottom. can't wait to see the finished work.

Nice job cap'n

Aloha

I will post my pics ASAP- It was a great time and I thank you again Ben. My tiki's belly thanks you too- the belly button came out great!

I also got to see Ben's portfolio while I was there, and some of his jewelry/figurine works in pewter and silver.

My arsenal of a whole 4 chisels and a rubber mallot is a rusty joke to Ben's workspace- The reciprocating chisel is amazing to work with- All I can relate it to is using clippers to cut hair... It's almost that easy in terms of control (at least with Palm wood).

And I have something else to share that many of you have been dieing to see-
A few minutes of Benzart in action carving, up close and personal taken with the movie capabilities of my camera- It's about 40mb so I just need to compress it first..

That's looking great, Skully! I know it will be a super tiki when you're done. I too am a bit jealous. Some day when Nina & I make the obligatory parental pilgramage to Disney World, we'll look you up Ben. Hell, I'd love to hook up with all of you talented Florida carvers someday (Palama, Skully, G, Flacookz - who else did I miss?). There's a lot of TC carvers in FLA, aren't there?

Now, we're all waiting for that video footage, Skully!

Well Y'all c'mon down. Pile'em up and stack'em high. We can sweep a Lot of chips out the door. Theres plenty of carving space on the floor.
We really need to plan a Big get together.

Capt'n Skully-
Where would I get a Reciprocating Chisel? It looks like a great tool. I've googled it and haven't found much. Thanks You
Wesley

Hey Skully thanks for the photos you added. It was great to see more shots of inside the Benzartorium. I know you reveled in the moment as you got to see the master at work in his studio. Something I can assure you we would all love to do. Please try to keep inspiring each other with frequent get togethers and add whomever you can so that we who can't make it there in person can still enjoy the creative gatherings!

the knot near the eyes, looks like an eye, and makes the carving funny.
