Thanks for looking everyone. As you all know, Lono headdresses can be
an awful lot of hard work (especially removing the wood you don't need).
They also present a design challenge...hope I'm up to the task!

Welcome to TC Atomic Mess, we always need new carvers around here and I
like your early postings. Thanks for wading through the thread....I
appreciate the comments.

Great Lono!!!!! Conga, your carving skills never cease to amaze me. What you just said about the headdress is the EXACT reason why I have never carved one of these, yours looks fantastic!!!!

Thanks Polynesiac, agree with you that it's often better to gravitate
toward the things that aren't so labor intensive.
A week or so of repeated sanding and refining and I don't really have much
to show for it...but things are coming around





I have no historical basis for this but i like to think of the headdress
as being part of the tiki, sort of like antlers, instead of something worn
like a hat. That could be my niche, a cross between tikis and whitetail deer:-)

whatever your historic basis is, it sure seems to be kicking helmet hair in the toupee. That looks well on the way to being incredible!

I'd like to see you do a 12-pointer next.

Hi Benz...Keylo...and Amate...thanks for the push...I need it.
Not so sure about the 12 pointer Amate, that wouldn't even get much attention up here in the northwoods. Here the hunters dream of the "thirty point buck."
if you're brave enough check it out on You Tube...."Da Yoopers."

Of course I was refering to a 12-point tiki. If your going with 30 points, better do a Kane. Lots of spikes on those hats.

Hello everyone, getting some real nice carving action around this place
lately, compliments to all.

Just plodding along with this fella, very early in the finishing process.
I am sorta liking the "rough and tumble" look that seems to be developing,
like the carving has been kicked around the neighborhood for a couple
hundred years.
