Your bench is looking more and more "Hokitika" each time you show it Ben!

Nice use of patterning in the agate and full-bodied Ku's - and a jade waka-huia?? I give you a 10/10 right now for pure ambition! Cant wait to see it, no doubts in my mind it will be spectacular.

Rock on Sir!

Hi Ben - good to see you back to your excellent work, (just to understate it a little )

What is that new (to me) tool with the black handle and a rock saw blade clamped on the end? Pretty cool!

That bowl is really very interesting. Looks like you gotta be real careful with that one.

Greg

you know what's amazing about you ben? You are seriously the best carver around - everything you do is pure gold. From the design to the execution of the piece to the fact that you have a ton of other stuff going on, and always come back with a smile and a kind word. My god, these jade pieces are INCREDIBLE. I have no idea how you do it, continually come up with different design ideas time after time - each one very complicated and a masterpiece in it's own right. Very impressive indeed.

I was just thinking, while I was looking at your catalogue of work - do you have any idea how many tiki carvings you've done? I bet there's a TON! You, my friend, are a true master. Looking forward to seeing more!!!!!
