I've start a new koru slightly différent, pix next time!!!

Benjamin, don't worry for the understanding, me too je comprend beaucoup mieux le français...The sanding with hands paper is not boring, it's just hard and long, not boring.This little piece was sanded with a 400 grain before polishing...


following next time, I must go wake up my daugther, soon school for her ,and working for me...

Jérôme.

Thanx BigT (all texans are big? )
In fact the wood grain is so tight that the polishing is done quite easily, after a 400 sanding. The little koru was working on the wood butt, that's also the reason of thin grain.



Yesterday,I've try for pearl inlay, I think I've the solution...
Advise are welcome...

Have a nice day.

Jérôme.

The wood grain really gives your pieces a strong personality.

I also loved the pink Koru and can't wait to see what your Hei Tiki will look like when they are done.

Aloha!

Marcus

Thanx Benz, For pearl inlay I cheat a little...In fact I proceed by double hole and I wedge a tiny cylinder of wood in the center...
I've find some old carving, made maybe in 2004, before big work in our house and birth of our daughters. It was ten or twelve but I've gave all the pieces at friends or old coworkers.There I keep two, not finished (maybe the worst):



I'm glad to refind them.

Thanx for LOL reply Big T!!!
Today I keep my baby, but I can't stop carve even in the kitchen! Am I severely affected??
the advantage is that I can eat chips!!



Thanx for coment Aweulekuula!
Excuse my ignorance, but what's the meaning of your name?


Last picture before sanding on small koru,I marked an edge,he look different than the first


work in progress for the twin side hanger hei tiki.I have yet full of work...


Have a nice day

Jérôme.

This one is very charming. I like it! Also the new ones are very nice.

As for the carrots, they are great, but I was taught never to play with my food!

WOW boy, you're an addict now ! I think that addicted to tiki is the best addiction

Everything's cool on your update my friend.
The old tikis are nice, the carrots are great, the hei tikis become fantastic and the Koru is simply unbelievable: the edge you marked makes it totally.
Did you try potatoes ? (I tried ) Potatoes seem to have rings like wood.

Thanks for the link, one of the pictures will help me in carving a bigger marquesan I have begun a while back.

Benjamin.
