Thanks everybody!
Palm City, I'm not sure if I posted a how-to here yet, but I will do one soon so you can at least see how I do it.

This was an end piece of zebra wood that I'm sure came from Benzart's place. Being an end piece, I didn't really want to carve it, but it was way to beautiful to throw away. So I made this simple piece to show off it's amazing color and grain.

I wish this pic didn't look so washed-out, because you could get lost forever in the color.
Thanks for looking!

This shape of carving sticks perfectly with the zebra wood. Nice carve.

Benjamin.

ALOOOOOOOOOOHA!

I worked on some wall hagings today.
The first one is my newest resin mounted on a round piece of mahogany. It was sort of an afterthought of the day, but I was pleasently suprised at how cute it turned out.

This is an older piece that I did. Some may remember it from Hukilau 3 or 4 years ago. This one is mounted on a gorgeous piece of mokey pod wood.

This is the same piece, but painted to look like wood and mounted on a board covered with a piece of tropical print fabric.


Now for the special pieces!
My 7 year old, Brendan, wanted to get in on the fun, so he drew up these pictures mounted in classy popsicle stick frames.
A hula girl with "real" fabric skirt, and a tiki by a palm tree.

Then my 6 year old, Quinn, felt left out so he made a couple too.
The first is a 4-frame picture.
1) a pineapple
2) funny square guy discovers the pineapple
3) he picks it up over his head
4) he becomes sad because the pineapple broke in half
The second is the same funny square guy saying, "You are cute!"

They made me promise to sell them at the Chef event, so come early to get yours!

Thanks again Ben.
I'm trying to get as much done as I can before next weekend.
Tomorrow I should spend the day braiding cords for all the pendants I've done lately.
I usually make my daughter do it, but she's visiting my family out in Vegas.
I'm not looking forward to crampy fingers!

Nice stuff Finky! You were absent for too long, but you have certainly
returned with a tiki vengeance. The tropical background really looks great
with your carvings. Coooooool.
