Thanks for the cool picture FTLOT, they wanted to take me home, but I told them I was celebrating my 40th wedding anniversary and we would have to do it another time. They were obviously disappointed but they understood. Nice slide show on your thread also. Thanks for the comment nomolos!

It's always a pleasure to talk to you H10, I reckon it will be next May before we meet again. Here are some projects that are in the works.
I mended and re-painted "Joaquin" after a topple at Tiki Oasis snapped him in half.


When a friend brought me this cool piece of sweet gum I immediately thought of a quick sketch I did many years ago from a Don the Beachcomber ad.


The wood is fairly hard with a strange dark and light grain that reminds me of birch.

Also going is this milled cedar plank from my barn.

And a stump I cut in half, not sure where I will be going with these yet.

I know you have been waiting breathlessly for an update, most of my carving time went into this cedar stump that I cut in half.



The other half.

I started on an octopus headdress for this cedar piece.

The back is hollowed out.

I'm doing a small local non tiki show next weekend and really wanted to bring the middle piece of jelutong, but I broke one of the bones that stick out while unloading at Tiki Oasis. It is now fixed and reinforced like it should have been originally.

Love the piece with the bone going through it and I like your last piece, the thick one, and yes we were waiting impatiently for your progress report.

Thanks MDM, hil, and H10, always satisfying to get nice comments! Almost finished with "Wrigley", a piece of sweet gum.




Also working "Nemo", a chunk of cedar.

Thanks H10, very good Will! I have put a lot of time into "Nemo" the last few weeks.




He lights.

I also started a paddle I purchased cheaply.

The spooky one on the left is "Webster", a hard piece of purple heart, the other is jelutong that I just ripped into with absolutely no plan.

I did more work on "Chance", a 35 x 5 inch piece of scrap jelutong.

Also been working the stump of cedar entitled "Many Menehunes."

I brought him to my last show in October as a work in progress and a few people thought it would make a good table and I agreed. Besides adding a top I hooked him up with a backlight.


With the scraps of plywood from the table top I screwed n' glued this together and will be painted rather than carved.
