well, i'm trying to make a fresh start with all kinds of things here, so i thought i'd make a fresh start carving thread. i have about 4 or 5 projects going, but i think this will be complete first. something i don't think i've ever seen before. some people may not recognize it but it will become apparent.

it's a lakatoi.



i'll do some more carving and some lashing and a couple of inlays and it should look pretty nice. beef bone and all.

people are funny.

man, it's hard to get a good photo of bone. especially at night. here's the sail with the first, fine sanding and the inlays.

well, the sail's coming right along. it's amazing how crappy photos make bone look. oh, well, too bad.

Well one of you has to get it together! Whats the carved detail at the bottom? Can you get a clearer pic?

Nice idea, it seems to be one of those that would yeild many developments if 'followed'.. I saw a few examples of these types of sail in a Melbourne Museum recently. Beautiful things.

Keep the new thread kickin' Perry!

I like it. I think the concept works well enough that you could just do the sail and the binding/rigging without all the other stuff and it'd still look great. Sweet job on that crescent inlay too.
