I have seen rope used so why not a belt. I think it looks good and the over all carving looks awesome.

I called my wife over to check out your pics and we both like your carving without the headband. With the band, from a distance it almost takes on a shriners hat look.

Either way its a killer tiki.

It's a super clean tiki. I say lose the belt, it doesn't need it.

That's a cool tiki. It's great the way you used the wood color and stain. I like the whole effect.

That really turned out AWSOME! It's amazing what you can do with one stain and careful carving! As far as the belt goes, I think I'm leaning toward leaving it off. It hides some of the carving.

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I had added to this thread. I guess going to Coontiki this spring kind of occupied my carving thoughts on a different level. Here is my Benzart lesson piece from that event.

Here are some photos of the carving I just finished working on. I started this 18" walnut piece as something to work on indoors as I watched the month-long World cup soccer tournament. Just used the hook knife set I got for Coontiki. I would probably have finished it sooner but my father died three weeks ago and I haven't felt like doing much besides helping my Mother. I do think it was good therapy for me when I finally picked it up again and finished the final steps. I will always think of my Dad when I look at this little carving. I was on vacation at the time so we were working on the landscaping in his backyard during the days and then I watched soccer games and carved on this during the evenings. If you know my signature pictures, you might recognize this tiki. So here is the finished piece.

Dedicated to my Father. Miss you Dad!



Finished carving, Ready for a light sanding.






Paint for the highlights....




Stained and done.





I tried to keep this pretty true to the 8FT version wherever possible and it turned out pretty close. Thanks for checking it out. Aloha, 8FT Tiki

It looks like it's much bigger than it is, you've packed in a heap of detail for a small piece. Is the bigger one it's based on posted earlier in this thread? A lot of the images don't seem to work anymore.
Real sorry to hear about your Dad, looks like he was pretty cool.

That's a beautiful Marquesan, 8ft. Your Dad and Ed Crissman are drinking a toast to you together right now, bra.

8Ft, So Sorry to hear about your father. We each only get one of those and they are tough to lose. It's nice that you have something that You made that you can remember him with.
That carving is really Excellent. The colors are Perfect too!
On the Benzart Lesson piece, I'm with Gman it that I can't tell which side you did, Very well done!

Aloha 8 FT. Not knowing your dad, I can look at that picture and imagine what a fine father he is, full of character and good qualities. Beyond that, I can only imagine your loss and feel lucky not to have experienced the loss of a parent just yet. Maybe it was time for you to finish the 8 inch tiki to help you get through it. Whatever the case, it is a fine carving and really reflects its big daddy tiki in a beautiful way.

Take care my friend, and thanks for sharing.

Aaron

That is a nice memorial piece. From the picture of him, it looks like he was at least a little into the tiki scene. You did a great job on it.
