Hot damn... that's a lot of detail packed into those three.

That Lono head dress is off the hook. Nice work Jeff... Raised the bar real high on that one. Looks fragile.

That is some detail.. they are really beautiful! How much time does one take to do? Can you carve for long periods of time? I tend to to get tired and rush, make mistakes etc. I have to step away from it and come back

and poobah, to answer your questions,...

I don't know really... I never just "work" for more than an hour or 2 without coming inside, havin' a rum, checkin' facebook, screwin' around, etc. I lose track of time... I'm just kinda constantly, day and night going & pecking at it for 20 or 30 minutes or maybe an hour at a time. it's kinda just part of my life... it's been 2 and half years now since I've had a "real job"... lol...

Mine was worth the bucks.
Close to 10 years & works like new.
I have the smaller tooth chain & carve bar.
I don't beat on it.

ok, the end of the bar was a little pinched, but I pried it apart a little, so now it's assembled & ready to go...

I'm gonna make some stuff tomorrow....

360 bones with the carving bar...

was busy today & haven't used it yet, but my first impression is that it's heavy as hell for an electric...

I'm really enjoying my new makita...

today is a "fun" day. Masks are fun because they're kinda "instant gratification" because they come together so quickly.
