I just saw my thread passed 1,000,000 views. Thanks for looking all these years!
I'm a little overdue for a update, and for that I apologize. Here's a quick run through of what's been up
Did a run of soaps:
Then I did a massive resin casting run, hoping to make enough to last until at least August. A few highlights of some finished pieces:
Some new Maori Hei Tiki test pieces
Final versions pre abalone inlays
I recast some CocoJoes pendants and made a chess set with wooden board:
Back in the shop with a new small 7" Marq face design and mini shield/paddle
Missed the good old days where I was carving in comfort all the time so I got a new carving carpet for the living room:
I upgraded the tv, stereo, speakers, and furniture in the carving room as well
Heaven! This new set up rules!
First two tikis carved in front of the tv:
Next was a maori:
And another Maori:
Then Don's Tiki marketplace vending came up again, I was real low on stock, so I went to it for a few days:
In the middle of all that, I got a new buddy to hang out with:
Still no name for her. Her temporary name is Little Dog.
After the Don's show, I still had the old mess in the shop to deal with, and a bunch of stock pieces to replace. Usually I'd wait a while and do something different, but there was already a mess there. So, back to more mess and stock pieces:
I also got sidetracked one afternoon and made a mug shelf out of the Moai design:
I went all New Yankee Workshop on it and made mortise and tennon joints on it. I've only had the table router set up for 3 years without using it...
And that catches me up to present day...A couple quick custom requests to fill right away and then it's back to indoor carving for a few days.
C-ya again soon!
