Thanks everyone. I really like him but my 2 little girlss have a different opinion of him - They are terrified of him.

JP - The nose of the victim was a result of the cwood chipping. It would break , then I'd fix it, break somewhere else, fix, broke again and I had enough. So I had some struggles with the wood.

Ben - There are 2 different stains. White is nautural, Mahogany, and a blend of about 5 almost empty cans. I didn't like it at first because I wanted a smooth color - what the hell was I thinking?!? The bands of color are fantastic.

I was pretty busy carving over the long weekend. More coming soon..

Here's the latest mask I've been chipping on. Its a representation of an earlier pendant done n a much larger format. This is the other half of my "Heat Miser" - he's ready to be finished. I plan on finishing both at the same time (hehe I said "plan"). Placing "Aloha" on the crown was a suggestion of the future owner and I really like it. let me know...

LOVE IT! The ALOHA looks really good, great lettering. I can't believe how busy you've been, you've been carving more than I've been able to read!

What did you do with the broken pendant? I think selling it as a split pair would be sweet - kinda like those "best friend" hearts that I used to wear as a kid.

Cool posts as usual Aloha, I especially dig the last mask. All of your stuff
has "the attitude" but this last one really seems to have a swagger going on.
Nice work.

Thanks everyone. He came out really nice. Now I have to switch into finishing mode for two pieces. I will probabaly have an update this weekend.

Mieko - The split face has lost favor and been placed on my waiting list. My intent is to finish him soon - I'm just in a large carving mode at the moment. Wait till you see what I have planned next!

It is always a pleasure to see some new pics from AlohaStation: Great work and great postings. I must have read through this all nearly ten time. Just cool, clean carvings with a touch of humor.
Great.
