Groggy, you know that I'm subcontracting all my work to Kirby.

I used an x-acto hook blade and a curved blade (the opposite way, don't know what it's called). Also a regular flat blade cleanout knife. I cut out the basic form with a fine coping saw which really speeds things along. Glad ya like 'em!

Resins maybe late March. Kinda swamped now but I'll post in Marketplace when ready.

Obi Wan Diablo passed the force to me at the Tonga Hut art show. It involves a secret handshake enhanced with Tonga Punch residue.

Thanks Danny!

OK, so what do you do with the wide part of the handle right before the spoony part?
(I think it's called "Taint")
Well you make a one-off for yourself that shall not be reproduced. I give you the squid signature pendant...

Dude, that is so cool!!! And yes, I do believe that part of the spoon is called the taint. Please wear it to the Kirby's Birthday/Tiki Night/Jen's First Time thingy at the Tonga Hut on the 24th so we can all ogle it!

Lovely work Sir Squid!
