Nice mokos on those two guys, seeks!
Maybe I missed it, but what are you using to do those lines, a chisel, or some dremel-type tool?

Enjoy the waves on your trip!

Thanks tiki-thomas-08, thanks for peepin.

I just stained 'em, need to get some pics up.
Hey, what do you peeps suggest for aftercoating these guys, just curious what different routes everyone goes with, AFTER you stain.
Oil, varnish, poly, dipped in Guano, what?

Sweet Moais Surfin'!!!! I use Watco rejuvenating oil after I stain, GMAN got me to use it and I know he does too. Try it you will love it and you can apply it when needed, actually more the better!!!

I like the Hand-rub Poly. It has the look of oil with the protective nature of Polyurethane. Looking Good.

Aloha, I tried the hand rub poly, me like it...not so much. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but it looks pretty similar to the regular poly. I do like it for the UV protection and whatnot though.
4WD...I knew ya knew.
TikiT.08...thanks so much!
TikiFreak and Seeks, ya, I'm gonna get some...Gman told me about it a while ago, just haven't gotten to the store to get some.
TeaKEY, I never did know Bens' last name!

Hey Surfin, Nice job on the Moai Twins, you make me proud. The trick with the hand rub stuff is to use a minimally wet cloth, the drier the better, you should be putting on a very fine film and when it dries, a quick buff with the green scouring pad , brush off the dust and do it again. After you have done that 5 or 6 times it will start looking Sweet, but Not until you have several coats. It just takes very little.
I know,, too much work, but you have a couple nice pioeces done in nice wood and they deserve a Nice finish!
Well done.
Oh yeah, my last name is Zart. Benzart
