Took a while off for surgery, but getting back to carving slowly but surely. First couple pics are for an oversized Maori style hook. MEasures about 18" high x 14" wide x 4" deep. Bass
This next is a decently high relief depicting Hawaii's last queen, draped in her quilt. Portion of the Queens Prayer is carved near the bottom. Measures about 4' high x 18" wide x 2" deep. Poplar wood
Last is a commissioned walking stick. Had a really nice time on this... about 40 hours on figured Myrtle. Shark teeth, plumeria and tiki.
Thanks for looking

Your stuff is so cool that it will suck all the Chill out of Chicago and start a heat wave in Chi-Town! Amazing stuff!

Now these are some inspiring carves, especially love the big hook
and it's nice to see some tiki-relief carving. Have you posted
carvings before, I'm assuming these are not your first efforts.

All three pieces are masterful AND original (at least to my eyes), but this guy really gets me! Show us more!
