Voila......All done!




The photos may be tricking to the eye because the mouth is small and the line you see which sorta looks like a mouth is really the point at which the lower lip stops and the chin begins. We all have that line on our faces but I don't know if it really has a name? Anyway I just wanted to clarify what you are seeing.

That's a true work of art--very stylistic, smooth, nice lines, nice grain-and everything else that has been said about it before--SUPA-NICE!

The gunstock moai is very nice - that piece is really nice wood too. Sorry to hear about your dad 8ft.

Now the coon tiki diablo tang looks great hangin up there! I need some touch up on mine too... I'm soo far behind...

Sweet Moai 8ft! You nailed the simple flowing lines needed to pull it off.
Maybe do one as a profile and mount on a burlap or contrasting wood backing and frame it?
Swords into ploughshares, guns into Moais!

That moai is gorgeous! The wood is just incredible, and the simple lines just really show it off. Nice finish with the tung oil as well.

Here are 3 pendants I have completed in the last few months. One is a mini replica of the 8FT tall vintage palm Marquesan tiki from the K.C. Kona Kai originally created by Ed Crissman who worked for Oceanic Arts and restored by me in 2003. It is now in our great room and is the basis of my TC name. (for anyone who did not know the origins of my moniker) I wear this one with my aloha shirts. I also made a Moai with topknot for Mrs.8FT and the last one is a Moai Kava Kava bust and it is my entry for the Easter Island themed carving swap.
Each is 4 inches tall except for the Kava Kava which is 3 1/2". I worked on these mostly in the evenings while watching tv. I guess it is kinda like indoor whittling. (which Mrs. 8FT lets me do if I clean up after myself).
Benzart, I have used the heck out of the hook knife set since you told me where to get it. Thanks again for the advice.
