OOPS!! OK - lesson learned - Dammit! Always drill a pilot hole!



There's alot of good stuff on TC this week and I get to post this. I couldn'tt have split it any more perfect - right down the middle. This has not been a good week, because my Weecher also crapped out on me (Benz - you called it). The Heat-iki will have to wait to be finished. He has been sanded and is just waiting for me to finish. Maybe this weekend.

Hey, I"M THERE to righten up your Day ??? Not! Actually the bottom left split got a little uneven and it ended up not straight at all so when you do the next one, be a little more deliberate and GET IT EVEN!
Sorry about that I Know you didn't need it but KAHAKA's Right,,Now you have 2 tikis instead of one! See the bright side there and you can sell them as a On and Only Pair,,a Perfect Match for each other, How many people have a set of pendants Like that?? Huh? Run with it, use it, Sell them.

Must be a tiki vibe flowing thru the internet. Was just thinkin that they would look good as a pair. Preperations are all ready in the works! The crack is not as even as I would have liked, but its definately fixable.

Sand down the broken sides and sell them as a matched set of ear rings.

Here's the tiki that I did for the Skull show at Bird & Bear. This is a piece of white pine that really surprised me. I had never carved that type of wood before. Found it soft, but a bit chippy when doing detail. The grain came out BEAUTIFUL! The picture has a bit of a glare to it - its not really that glossy. Thanks for looking.

Always fantastic! You are right about the pine, chippy as heck, and when you get close to a knot, the grain goes crazy and pieces always fall out. You kicked this one though.

Very great stuff, AS.
I know I'm a bit curious but how many different stains did you put on this masterpiece ?
And did you use varnish or poly ?
The grain is simply beautiful.

Thanks,

Benjamin.
