I'm building another pepper grinder. OH NO it's a Lono.DSC02092

Amazing Will!

Let da peppa fly

So I figured I should make this work before I carve it. Two weeks into it & it works like a champ. It's a piece of cake there are only 25 individual parts that need to be custom fitted before we put it together. Then I came to discover it carves like a piece of crap. Chippy, brittle, hard & has big cracks from top to bottom. It's old dry Cypress & carves like ply wood. Well, let's see how this goes.DSC02094

May carve like crap But U making it look good

I'm about 1/2 way done with the carving. This wood's not so bad. It's just the outside layers. The grinder part works real good.DSC02095

Makes me think that everything needs pepper on it

Tool marks! Evidence that a work was created by an authentic Tiki Artist.

Thanks for the kind thoughts oddball. The more I use chisels the less I use power tools. I work hard to tell a story with tool marks.

So, I'm done with this guy. Here's the glamor shots. DSC02096DSC02097DSC02098DSC02099DSC02100DSC02101

Look what happens when you put coffee in a pepper grinder.
