Love the color of that mahogany. Leroy's gonna look righteous also. Take your time, don't pull anything. Good to see you back at it.

Great Tikis. Are these mostly chiseled? So Cool!
I made a Tiki first, and THEN decided it should become a lamp!
Basswood....
I do my Tikis Bass Ackwards and I majored in Pig Latin.

Thanks everybody! I'm starting to think about what stain to use on the birch Reloy when I'm done. Any suggestions?
Also should I even stain a mahogany??

Well, it's official...not going to Hukilau. Won't even bother explaining why, just won't be there. No tropical feasts, no mai-tai's at the Mai-kai, and especially, no meeting all you guys and seeing the amazing art. No surfing in tropical water, it's ok I'll be here in my 4/3 rubber, soon to be hood & mitts too. May Lono send you big carribean Huki-swells for Tiki G, Lake, SCtiki, Chongolio, Tony and the rest.
Just shoot me.
oh-yeah, any advice on stains (see above photos)

Man I sure am gonna miss seeing you and your stuff at Huki. Just pretend you can't come and come on down anyway.. Hope all's OK up there in the Frozen country.
As far ass stain on a mahogany piece, I wouldn't stain it unless with Mahogany stain. That is of course unless you need a particualr color for a decorating issue. Mahogany will stain Nice and evenly. Mahog is probably the World Standard in "woodworkers" wood. It already has nice color but if you want it darker, just use dark mahogany stain and it will be Nice.
Rethink the Hukilau. Ofcourse Next year is the one NOT to Miss since it is the MaiKai's 50th year anniversary. Gotta be there for that one.

4 hours of sanding today, oooh boy, don't ya love it!
I started this guy WAY back in may, and he's just about getting there, a little sanding, and stain, hmmmm what stain; dark? Light? What do you guys think?
Anyway, this is birch, and all I gotta say, is I LOVE IT! Birch is soooo nice to work with, we'll see how it takes a stain though.
I logged on a sheet all my time workin on this guy, so far at 14 hours, and of all the things (de-barking, chainsaw, chisel, dremel, drawing, sanding) more time was spent sanding than any one thing! God I hate sanding. Although, that is when you're almost done, and you're psyched.
