If I weren't carving Tiki's out in front of Don the BeachComber I'd be hanging out just for the Women!


This is Jennifer of the Dagger Bar graciously showing off a pair of my latest. She's got that Exotic Look and wears it well!

Here she is again!

The little guy in her hands is of American Bison (Buffalo). Traditional Maori symbols ( Sharks teeth, fish and spearheads) highlighted with spot tea staining. The Bone is highly sand polished and finished with Carnuba wax.




The Giraffe Bone guy is coming along. I'm taking my time with this one.

What we are looking at are some high quality, expensive and well used Chisels and tools that had belonged to a Master Woodworker. They have been in his Son's possession since he passed away, He told me that the tools were his pride and Joy and he preferred that they go into the hands of an Artisan where they could continue to be used in creations. The Son saw my work and decided to offer them to me.

This occupation has it's perks. Works will come of them, I assure you

Jennifer displays the latest the Latest Bone. American Bison with traditional Maori symbols in scrimshaw, light tea stain highlites and Carnuba wax finish. The dim image displays the shine of the bone. It has been hand sanded with 6 progressive grits and finished with hand applied Diamond White Polish.

Thanks for the recognition. The grits go from 150 up to 2000. I'm questioning the effectiveness of the polish when it is hand applied. I have heard that toothpaste works well for Bone, Ivory and Ebony. So I'll give it a try>

Mahalo! Sunset Mike

Both Jennifers, Amy and her Cohort, (Thee Swank Bastards Dancer poses with my 'Durante with an Attitude' Tiki) Mr Fez, Crazy Al himself. The dead head Camper was outside as well.

Blessed would be an understatement.Included in the set were a set of "Marples" chisels made in SHeffield England. Rose wood handles, Brass Burls and the Legendary Sheffield Steel that is all but unobtainable now.A smaller set of those Chisels was going for $200.00 Dollars on E-bay. Not to mention Henckels, Swiss Made and Italian rifflers and Files. The Box too. Oh, yes, I'm grateful as hell!.
