thanks!! i was happy doing this one.

it's padouk. it has a sandalwood smell to it. with a couple more coats of wax, it will look like the finish is deep into the wood. the back has a suprise detail.

what's next? well, i'm finishing up a suprise for a customer, so i don't want to post it. let me just say, bamboo is very hard to carve.

after that, i'm going to finish the jade hook.

OOPS, SHit, Damn. Thats what I say too, That's Really a bitch. The pic is a bit fuzzy, but that Little fuzzy thing on the bottom looks like it goes somewhere else. Drop back, rearrange and re-design. But wait for the master ponamu teacher to arrive on the scene and evaluate the situation.
OOuchhh!
