The Fun part. Somewhat,

Excersizing patience as I refine various areas and prepare for finishing. Still lot's to do. It's nice looking stuff this Olive Wood.

The mounting process. I do use an Electric anggle grinder to smooth out the mounting surfaces. The rest is all old fashioned method. Hand operated drill with spade bit, plum bob with adjustable stand, level, log saw, polished granite leveling surface and pencils for mark and match. Even with machine it is not easy. I'm getting better at it.

He can stand on his own two feet! At least with the help of the pedestal. The pedestal is an Olive Wood root burl which is appropriate. This guy has the informal name "Ollie"at least until his adopted parents give him a name.

"Menehune Koa" is the closest translation for "Ollie" in Hawaiian. According to the name meaning (Oliver, Elf warrior). "Oliwa la'au" could also work. meaning "Olive wood"
