Hey, long time no see? I'm glad you have a few pieces going. Love the mango-guys. That wee-Tang is almost Tama small! Yikes!

Mahalos bigT! The mango is not as hard as monkey pod or African purple heart. If you've carved either of them. The closest wood in grain is some maple I've carved. Harder than pine not as hard as ash.
Hope that helped.

Aloha Gman. Well he is small but I'm afraid Tama has got me beat. Here he is almost all sanded.

Looks like he's taking a whiz on the Father of my country. That's not cool!

The tiki is cool, though. Nice job.

Hey, size (or lack of) isnt everything! In terms of Tanginess you win hands down. My little guy is positively abstract compared to the natural/traditional result you have achieved. I truly envy those of you who seem to tackle 3-D so effortlessly. Good on you for giving him a big ol' whanger too! Respect.

Tama

Mahalos Benzart, He must not have had too much trouble because he seemed to have walked away from my mug shelf where he was sitting. My six year old son got a laugh out of it. He calls it "naked tiki".

Ben, merci! The wood is Koa.

Mahalos Seeksurf, I'm glad you like em.

Pappy, If that's the worst thing you've seem done to American currency then you should stay out of strip joints because they do some nasty stuff to the father of my country in there. It's just harmless little statue sitting on the edge of a quarter. Thanks for the comps though, I guess.

Tama, Mahalo for the comps. Yes your tang is quite abstract, but you captured all the important lines and I like yours better, it has a modern look.

I'm working on a bunch of stuff now and I'll try to get some pictures up soon.

I started this a while back and he's been sitting around with little more than marker lines on him. Last week I heard him calling me to release him from the wood.

Here's a sneak peak of the Hunter cannibal tiki.



Mahalos for looking.

Yes, release him! To me, he looks like he is guilty and
he knows it. He looks great already.

Mahalos Benella and Seeksurf. I appreciate the kind words.

Todays progress yielded 2 slices to my left hand and an important lesson was learned.
I usually am like a boy scout and I be repaired to deal with any thing. But today I found myself without the basic first aid necessities:
A) Cocktail fixens
B) Super Glue
C) Bandages

Now in all fairness, I had the Cocktail Fixens. The super glue was MIA and probably dried up as it's been a while since I cut my self. Damn cannibals always bite me! I carved 4 Hawaiian pieces with out a scratch.



I'll post the finished Hunter soon.

Mahalos for looking.

Mahalos for looking
