Moon, I love the Moai. Please post some pics once you've got it hooked up with the pump & all. I could just see that bad boy in my garden! The mask sounds like a cool project also.

Here are a couple photo's of the papua mask. It's 13" long and it's Redwood. I cut out the lips and inlayed Cherry wood. It took about 2.5 hours to complete. I will finish with a clear satin finish. My computer is taking a dive for some reason so I'll post the finished product when I can. I started on another Moai. I'm about an hour into it. Happy Thanksgiving Day all!

Moon,

Glad you decided to continue to play with the rest of us. That mask looks real good. So clean and tight... As Ben said, it looks great against the hardwood floor. Post more pics when you computer shakes out.

Here's a couple of Bamboo Wall Lamps I just finished. They are smaller than the first 8" wide X 12" tall.




Also here is a Moai that I have been working on, it almost finished. 13" tall and not very thick, around 2".

I would love to see a step by step of how those are made .I have some really ugly lights in my office and something like these would be a great change. Nice work on the carvings too.

Here are some photos of the carving bench. It's made of 2X6's and 2X4's. It was scrap lumber so I don't care if I cut it up. It has a few chainsaw nicks.



The bags I was telling you about too. The are filled with crushed corncob. You can put sand in them instead of the corn.


Here's a couple photos of my concrete Moai. He's chillin' out for sure. That temp is correct 28.



We've had 2 snows all ready. Baaaa!

I like seeing the snow on my Moai too. They are made out of cold stone and probably don't mind it as much as the rest of us. The snow creates different hats for different days.

Moondance,
I would like to see the step by step on the lamps. They look like they would be fun to make.

Tikis with snow is all too common up here. I wonder if there is a cure.
