Here is the next tiki in progress. Lono - almost finished, still needs some cleanup and sanding. I will probably give him the same treatment as the Crowned Tiki (light color highlights then clear coated. I really like this little guy!

Thanks for compliments. He is 10" tall and carved out of Black Walnut. I have been wrestling the idea of carving all the way thru the crown - it is hollow but not that thin. There are a few cracks around the top of the crown that were already there when I started carving - so I'm not sure if the wood can take the stress. That will probably be a decision made on the fly. i should be done carving on this guy soon - now comes the hard part for me - finishing.

Here's a quickie done in a few hours with a scrap piece of wood. Almost 4" tall - the wood is just beautiful. Enjoy.

Wow, AlohaStation, your work looks really nice! Everything has a ton of personality and life. I'm very impressed, especially with that last Lono!

AS, These Quickies Always turn out great and this guy did too. Your Lono looks really great. For carving thru the crown, you might try a wide hole drilled down from the top then it would be easier to carve thru the wall. Think on it. You can use a drill press to do it easily. Come on up if you don't have one, or Come on up Anyway, we're Due!

This guy wasn't a "quickie" - had a really hard time finishing this one. my ADD must have kicked in because I've been working on so many other projects since starting him at the TikiJam. He's almost 7' tall and carved from a sabal palm (my last piece - if any one in S.FL is holdin??). My wife loves this guy - so my plan must have worked! She wanted tiki that was very inviting. I love the pineaple - you'll be seeing more of those!!



Benz - I would love to come up, schedule permitting. I am looking forward to meeting you new neighborish - Finkdady.

He looks like someone that you would always make sure is invited to whatever party your're having. Really, really cool. Love the use of color!!
