The bone zen master has returned! Your bone carvings make us all look like chumps, braddah! It's good to have you back. The "D" word is the hardest thing I have ever been through in my life. You had a faster bounce than I did by a longshot. I didn't touch my art for two years! You have a true creative knack that meets a true talent in the middle..the real thing.

HOOOWWWZIT!
Pdrake- hey brah! Thanks for checking out da kine address brah! And, Ill definitely post a thread on how I make the kaula. Its similar to the maori style corage but a bit mo bettah (in my opinion). After I get settled in Ill let the posts fly! Look forward to da kine and things li'dat...

Clarita- Such Kind words...Mahalo nui loa sistah! Please check back as ll be posting new works soon (maybe weeks, but soon!)

BK- Hey cuz... Big Mahalo'z brah!!! But, Im still wiating for the stiches to take so my wounds wont break open again!!! But Im doing way mo bettah brah, especially now! I thank you so much for your thoughts & prayers brah! A hui Ho!

Queen- Mahalo for the warm welcome back!!! I will definitely posts some threads about the kaula (although not a braid!) and how I make da kine! I figure my secrets are safe with all of you folks. You are Ohana, are you not!!!! I can trust you buggah's to not sell my secrets to Ronco so Ron Popeil can make da kine Plaiting machine... "Only $19.95!!!! But wait, theres more... If you buy now we'll throw in this handy traveling lint roller, a $10.00 value for free...!!!" Shootz!

Mahalo again everyone, for everything!

kaha ki'i, welcome back, your stuff has been sadly missed, it was a great inspiration to me, I tried to contact you to buy one or two of your pieces, when I failed, I started to carve some stuff myself even one or two makau.
I offered to supply 'B' with one of my pieces free, glad I didn't now cos there nothing like the quality you make. Anyway glad youv'e put it all behind you.
I too am looking forward to an article on how to plait a kaula.
Great to see you back
Regards
Flynny

braiding by Kaha I can just see it now... "now, you put this happy little rope over this other happy little rope and snug it down ever so gently....there. That's nice" Count me in to bro!

Welcome back! I'm looking forward to what you got to show us!

Kaha, your secrets are safe with all of us. Although you have to give credit to Ron Popeil for all the wacky items, especially the hair paint...remember that..lol, he is so beneath this. We are all eager to learn, so please do teach us.... welcome back, this is great!!!
