Aloha to all!!!
Seeksurf, Mahalo for the nice words,much appreciated my friend.
TikiDuddy, Thanks for the kind words.
greentikipat,pat,yes i was at bens carvin chop but had to leave early to get back to my daughters birthday party,but i look forward to meeting you at the Hukilau and seeing your Amazing Art.
Harro,2 many fish to fry and so little time till Hukilau to finish them and I dont think I'm gonna be able to finish the KOA Lono by then but will see. Mahalo for the nice words and how are you I hope well aloha your friend mooney.

Well I have a few photos to show of some carvings so here goes
First, those that have been followin know my helper Ryan (mister i wanna carve with dad and all the tool in the shed are MINE)well here is mister Ryan helping me carve a Moai pendant in Al-bee-zee-ah oh by the way his sister Hannah loves to carve also, she was busy on the trampoleen.

close up of Ryans Moai we put a New spin on the pendant by carving a Fish Hook for the nose and an A frame Wave for the ear.

Lono looking for a date with the hula girl. Finally finished this lono pendant in Black walnut.

I found this scrap piece of maple out back in the trash at a local woodshop and I thought it would make a Great wave but the wood is Way more Beautiful than I could have imagined.

maple wave check out the grain and how it goes in 2 directions!

The Maori Mask is almost finished. I just have to draw the Tattoos and carve them and he's off to the Hukilau. If you look at the nose sideways you can see a surf wave on each nostril.

well thats all the pics that I have for now, but I have a couple more to post on monday some to finish and a few New ones Mahalo to all that stopped by and may the Aloha always be at your door every day, Aloha your friend Jimmy Mooney

Excellent stuff Jimmy and I Love the wave even though the wood is Hard as nails. Perfect age to start Ryan out carving with the power tools Too. Glad I don't hafta wait till Huki to see your stuff! That Spike Tiki is really cool but I don't think you should take it with you, instead leave him here in my shop so the peeps don't get scared away from the rest of your stuff. He can hang out here for awhile, I'll let you know when he's safe!.

Love the detail on the eyes and the use of the wood grain really brings out the cheek area. Very Nice!
