Great Keigs...your "New Witco" stuff is always so cool...like everyone else said....looks
great with the background. I am always thinking of doing something in a Witco style...but
what's the point? You Da Man.

wow! thanks for all the compliments. This is a piece me and a friend put together. I have loved the old Witco painted backgrounds with wood carvings. I think a block print would be a lot easier than the way we did it and probably turn out a little better. Hope to have more designs soon. Thanks again

here is a new one it is supposed to be Lono. I tried to do a cool headdress but ended up cutting it out. To much detail for the chainsaw. So this is the best I could do with a chainsaw and angle grinder. It is my first real try at a lono and was a fun but kind of hard to carve. He is 5 ft tall and made of cedar. I actually took pictures of the process for once. I started out with a round log and made it somewhat square. The first pic is the squared up log.


just getting started



pretty much roughed out


finished I would have added more pictures of the progress but with dial up it takes way to long

Hey Keigs, This is a Super Lono, just Excellent work. And with only 6 pictures it seems like it only took you 20 minutes, when in reality I Know it took at Least 30 or so?!! Definitely a Keeper to be proud of!

I am still amazed that you can do that with a chainsaw.

That cedar sure stains up nicely. I bet it smells nice while you're carving too.

Thanks Benz, The first picture took me about 30 minutes to square the log the rest on and off for 4 days. With lots of gazing at the tiki wondering what and how to do the next step. I really needed you to be here when I attempted the headdress:)
Polynesiac thanks The cedar smells really good. Even after the finish.
Alohastation, thanks also
