I have been busy Big T. Trying to get in as much as posible before the heat sets in. Roughing out a couple more this weekend.



I hear ya. Has already been sweltering on a couple of different days. Luckily I have this squirrel cage fan that really moves the air. It's damned noisy though!

Really appreciate the kind words Mac.

I'be been refering to this guy as "Speedo".







and now the Mrs.







Well BigT, if you wandered outside yesterday, you are aware that summer has arrived in earnest. Finishing these will probably carry me through until October.

Awesome new carves Allen! Yeah, this past weekend was sweltering! We'll be down at Surfside this weekend on a family outing and I may have to try getting over to Bryan beach and see about that driftwood you discovered.

Thanks Roy. It's best to check the tide tables for that trip down Bryan Beach. I always go at low tide and drive on the wet sand. Otherwise, it can be tough going unless you have 4WD. Go all the way to the river mouth.

Thanks so much Jon.

I’ve been trying to finish up on several things that have been dragging on forever but somehow I keep getting distracted.

I started this mini Menehune last weekend.




I thought it best to go ahead and finish him up quickly. He is just over 8 inches tall but packed with attitude and not very tolerant of my slothful ways. I’m calling him “Pug” (pugnacious)





Making another attempt at a drummer and I like the new design. Just wish this piece of wood wasn't so hard. I'll never be able to sand all the scratches out. Trying to go with a more peaceful countenance on this one.



Another distraction was this female Menehune. I was just trying to keep the peace amongst all the the bachelors but now it seems there might be a shootout!



and finally finished up this 19 inch Ku.

Thanks all for the kind words...

Blue Moai is 24 inches







Drummer is 8 inches.







Doris is a modest gal and she has not been happy. She has been upset because she must stand on my shelf “neckid as a jay bird” while all of the men have on, a breechcloth, grass skirt or britches of some sort. Got to keep the tenants happy so I fixed her up…now, all the other ladies are grumbling. You just can’t win…

The Drummer is really good, but,
the Blue Moai looks like Richard Nixon.
