Benzart Thanks Grog for the high compliments, glad the boobies qualify Grog, Thanks.

Clarita, Happy to see you and Glad you like the Purple Hei-Tiki, he would love that!
Thanks for stopping by again.

Heres a new piece, 10 inches tall, Redwood a Moai started a few days ago. Took a small nip from a finger so he likes the taste already.

I started on a piece of Redwood recently. Been using chisels so far and everything is working nicely. The wood seems a bit chippy (like pine) - is this normal? Also I have heard that Redwood is toxic if you breath it while sanding - is that true?

Digging the elegant curved lines on this one Ben - very stately. Beautiful grain in that wood too!

Hello Ben!

Impressive carve on the latest tiki dude, my goodness, drawing blood and all that...but while looking over the pics I noticed something - and this (for me) is WAY MORE IMPRESSIVE than your latest blood hungry member of the famous Benzart family;

My business card is seen prominently on your workbench!!?!! Surreal? HELLO!!

Of all the places my card could end-up - this has got to be one of the best. Now that's something for ME to celebrate.

Thanks for the latest post an' pics. Carve-on master Ben G

The Redwood looks a little like the Palo Escrito.

Looks like a Masterpiece in the works. Wood looks like a mix of cedar and pine. Redwood A.
