From 6/12/17 Update. Step 2 in the series involved an installation last weekend for a party. It included board design #'s (L-r) 1, 6, 3, & 5. Dimensions are 1'x3'x1"
This pic shows the pieces assembled and ready to hang. I may sell these after cleaning them up a bit so pm me if you're interested.





I'm updating a previous post with my latest hei matau creations to get feedback from other tiki artists. Let me know what's up. Im' almost up to the suggested amount for items to start an Etsy store. I know online marketing is important but its such a drag if it takes me away from creating from my workbench. Hope you enjoy!

This is a closeup of a hei matau I finished recently. Saw it in my picture collection and decided to share. I gave it to my daughter but I liked it so much I think I'll make one for myself.

Nice! Corian? How did that carve?

Here's a posting suggestion. Many people make one thread and post all of their art in that one thread. That way we can check out all your cool stuff in one place

Holy crap - thanks for the guidance MDM.

You just reminded me of my old posts. I'll have to bring them back up.

I've never carved stone, so the only hard material I can compare it to is bone. I use the same filing, sanding, and polishing tools. It handles better than bone on a scroll or bandsaw. You can order free samples from suppliers and give it shot. It's worth trying out.
