well, my hands started to hurt and i was sucking at intaglio and spirals, so i decided to hire a tiny crew of free masons. i think they did an okay job on their first day.




(actually, i tried a new technique. i think it works.)

Certainly seems to, whatever it is..

Can you give us a hint at what you're using or have you started keeping your methods secret already..?

yes, my secret carving technique. i tell you, once i perfected my shrinking ray the freemasons came in quite handy.

i used a bit like this:




like a wise man once told me . . . no bit is perfect for any particular job. it depends on what works for the person at the time.

And this relates to what kind of tiki carving? I'm lost. Or you are drunk! We wait with baited breath.

oh, and i really hope your breath isn't "baited" as that would mean you've been eating worms or anchovies. the proper term is "bated" as it means "reduced, lessened or lowered." which is surely something you should do in my presents. (sic for humor.)

PNG canoe-sail pendant and a whaletail scrolled-up with koru-motif: whats the problem?

Whaletails are perfectly valid to the Maoris carving them down here, ditto the surface decorations.
While the sails aren't Polynesian, Ive seen plenty of other carvers and painters on TC using Melanesian/Micronesian Art and Artifacts as inspiration for their designs, without harrassment. I dont understand why you'd post such a comment? Not very supportive or... anything

Apparently you've not had the pleasure of spending a hot summer day with pdrake and then tried to have a conversation with him after, uh, I forget how many cocktails we had.

Perry, glad to see you back!!
Keep going with the great work!
