Great stuff Will! I really like the Redwood heartwood pieces.

Hope to see more pics soon!

If that's your first jade piece, you've done amazingly well - then I reread your post and saw this:
Currently, there is no water system in place, I have just been dry carving the stone.

Crazy! You really need to get that sorted - aside from the dust, the lack of lubrication is really hard on the stone and tools. Some softer stones can be carved dry with diamonds, but it always goes better with water! The biggest difference you'll notice is how much deeper and cleaner your cuts will be, and looking at your wood pieces that's what you'll be aiming for. Keep us posted on your progress!
I need to go on a surf camp too - I'm thinking that's about the only way I'll get in any decent water time this year...
