I was advised that it's hard to achieve the come hither look! Of course that doesn't stop me from saying... Looks cool with that come hither shape. Obviously I need a little guidance as to the significance of the stance in Maori Tekotekos?

Looks neat so far and really what does the stance signify?

Can't wait to see him as he materializes from beneath the wood.

Just teasing; The saw may be family but you havent done any chainsaw work since Ive been here, Chainsaw Mauf! *Thought you might have forgotten how, but your quick progress proves that wrong...

Lookin good Gman. Nice proportion & pose! Keep us posted.

QueenK - Thanks for the positive feedback. I try.

Tikisgrl - The "come hither pose" is actually a defiance pose...one that a warrior would show to an enemy or demonstrate in a dance depicting battle or how powerful he is.

Vamp - I'm glad you like the bonz. They are fun to make.

Tama - Thanks for the positive comment about the proportion and pose. The poses are what makes the Maori work so attractive to me.

My plans for today fell through, so I got a chance to work on the teko again. He's coming along. The saw work is done, now it's on to the chisels.





Thanks for looking,

Gman

Aww. Im too late: while you had your chainsaw out I was going to issue a 'Tiny Tiki Challenge':chainsaw catagory...
Dont want anyone to get hurt of course, but anyone up for it? G?

OK, how about with chisels/wood. How low can you go? Just a thought...

**I think the 'come hither/defiance' will come down to the facial expression; could go either way at present

Nice GMan...the Teko Teko definitely has the attitude going on...great flowing body lines...
I can't tell you how happy I am to see your tremendous work with bonez and now a return to
that cool red ceder. If I encountered this guy in battle I wouldn't know if I should run
or kiss him.

Just for the record and to atone for my error:

Tikisgrl - The "come hither pose" is actually a defiance pose...one that a warrior would show to an enemy or demonstrate in a dance depicting battle or how powerful he is. GMAN

So now that I know that is a defiant pose. I say he is shaping up like a mighty warrior Strong & Brave!!!

Looking great GMAN he's making me tremble with fear already...

Gman, I'm really glad you got this extra day to finish up the heavy tool work. This guy is still looking great. I can see where you are going with the pose and it is a very difficult, tricky stance to pull off, but I have faith in your talent to do it properly. Excellent so far!

Tama - Competition? Whatcha got in mind? You wanna race saws? I have a race saw.....

Conga - Thanks man. It's nice to be back cutting big chunks off of logs. I'm going to enjoy this guy a lot.

Finky - Sexy, aye? But what you don't know is that he is hiding a knife behind his back. Don't cross him or he'll git you!

Tikisgrl - Thanks, don't be scared....at least not yet.

Benz - Thanks for the faith and support. I liked your idea for him. Thanks. I'll see what I can do this week.

SurfnTurf - Where you been? How is the gable and all that work you were doing? I would love to see more of that project. As for me, this is my last seasoned cedar log.

-Gman
