WOAH, Lookit this, I really hope you don't blow it too as he has Lots of neat details. I Hardly think you will blow it as there is already too much detail that was very tricky and difficult to do. Love the clean, crisp lines and the overall look of this one. I don't think I've seen this piece before, what is the size and the wood?
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the tease Rainhawk you Know we'll be dying till you post it, He's Sweet enough to show again though, even


in his unfinished state.
That Totara wood is Beautiful. We have a Podocarpus over here which looks very similar which I've had the pleasure of carving and it is Sweet stuff. Don't keep us hanging too long?

Thanks mang "better luck next time" id be a killer dolphin

At the moment, other than bone/ stone carving in my studio, im also working at uni studing wood carving under a tohunga (master). He helped to teach me to draw up and carve the mask. He would carve parts to school me, I did carve most of it though, but I didnt do it all alone Im confident with the right tools i may even do it again heh Compaired to the other students work though, mines just scratching average

Hes going to exhibit for over a K this week. sweeeeeet
I'll post some more bone carving laterz and some more bone videoz. :rockon:

He doesn't even look like the last pic you were working on. Way Cool looking detail. I'd say your Tohunga will be finished with you pretty soon and he will be nudging you out of the nest.
Nah, You are already flying free.
Thanks for the post and the Pic!

Thanks mang
This is my pou/ heke that im working on at the moment
Im pretty stoked with him but the hard part is coming, the surface design. I had fun blocking him out and cleaning him tho, but i really dont want to blow it now.
All the work was done by hand with a chainsaw i mean sand paper i mean chisel.

Super tight panel there Rainhawk! What type of wood is that? I agree with above comment - your skills are evident, just a matter of taking your time and doing your best at all times eh? Im sure your surface decoration will be just as outstanding. Im still not brave enough to show my first rakau efforts yet but will do soon - dont want to make my teacher look bad & a little worried that the expectations on TC-Maoris might be quite high. Your fine mahi doesnt help my cause at all either..

Kia ora,

Thanks guys
Tama: Dont worry i feel the same way about my work compaired to the bro's in my class, their stuff is amazing! You just cant judge you work by others though. Hes made from native totara, nice red but not a perfect piece cause it has a split or two. Just makes it abit of a challenge to notch. I dig it the most! Im just getting my patterns ready to finish him
