thanks, surfin.

here's something i worked on today. kind of an experiment. it's a hei rakai, a maori reel. i'm sure our kiwi friends know more about them than i do at this point. i thought it would be neat to carve.

i also made these. i was going to put paua in the eyes, like the original, but i think they'll look kind of kitschy with rhinestones instead. what do you people think?

PD - that is all that really matters.

Looking good. It is always scary to work around those cracks! You are doing a fine job there. Keep it up!
