That is one FINE looking marquesian! You got the carving down! I noticed that you're going a little deeper with your cuts on this one than on the last one, the head of the marquesian looks great - very detailed and precise. It's amazing how a good set of chisels can really set you free, no?

I'm thinking...BOT...the Tikis...as your inspiration? Very well done! I think I'd like to carve just about every tiki I see in that book. Massive amounts of inspiration.

Can't wait to see him after the stain...are you going to paint the skull? and maybe add some colored highlights?

Yes, went a little deeper on the cuts this time. Felt a little braver with this one.

I'm going to use a dark stain and highlight the skull and teeth. Then age them.

Not sure which page it was on, but the inspiration did come from the BOT.

Aloha!!

Another Excellent tiki by ONO the Great. Man, we should have gotten you those FlexCuts a Long time ago. What would TC be like if you had had them a year or 2 ago. We would be flooded with fantastic OnaTikis.. Somebody make sure this man Never runs outta logs. You make me proud. Just like Aaron said, looks like it came out of a CnC machine. Thanks.

Here is #4 finished with dark walnut stain and highlights. It's still a little wet, but we were running out of daylight for the picture. And yes Polynesiac, it was the Tiki's.

Thanks to everybody else also.



Aloha!!

Right on the marq! That one has all of the elements of a great tiki.... mystery, adventure, and danger! I would not want to stumble onto that on an "unihabited" island! Really excellent, Ona. I think you have great things in store for us.

MAN Ona, I really LIKE that one! Are you using Palm logs? Your stain came out really rustic looking; my dark walnut jobs come out pretty much black and boring. Did you use a sealer before the stain?

AA Pointed out that we used the same source for our latest tikis. Here's mine:

I've GOT to try a full body next time; your's is AWSOME!

Ona, it's fantastic! I love that style! Very very Adventureland indeed!! You've been hiding your true skills all along, haven't you?

Hmmmmm.. I wonder.... Could there be room in the Woo for another #4? hehehe!
