thankyou very much!! GROG, big daddy, QK, little lost tiki, Lake Surfer, tyger jymmy, Howland, jab tiki and seeksurf.
Bowana, MadDogMike, Benzo and laojia, this are drums, the beret bowana was asking about it's the leader top they have, I took it out to work more comfortable, I was planning to put them back on ones I'm done carving. but the truth is, that I've lost one of this leader pieces, so the idea of turning this bamboo carvings in to sconces or some sort of light, like a night stand could be interesting. specially because, as laojia is suspecting, they don't sound as they should, after cutting out parts of them all the way thru... but I also like that they aren't technological at all, opposite to the stuff I did before, i like the feeling they have as drums, so I'm not sure what i'm going to do with them once i'm done carving, we'll see... stay tuned
thanks again, big smile here.

WOW! impressive band of drumer/brother.
I like the work on the mouth of the last, and my favorite is this one with spiral/koru eyes.
When will we hear this band play? In your myspace?

Wooooo!! Clarita! I dig the drums! If you make any more, I know a certain Tikiyaki that would love to have them It's actually very hard to find those bamboo drums here (boo-bams).
