Conga and Hewey,

Thanks. You make me smile. I'm enjoying working on this guy. I'll be working on his Moko nights, after work, so hopefully I'll have more pics this week. Stand by.

GMAN, he hi still lookin great, I can see where you are goin with the hands and feet. You are getting the inside legs cleaned up pretty well to me . I think you need to get some long gouges to get those legs with.
Keep up the good work.
Ben

Benz - I think I've got that part licked. I was able to get the #50 in there and use some gouges. I like the kit of 4 I bought a lot. Boy have the 6 flexcuts I have for the #50 been helpful! Happy Happy Happy!!

pdrake - No, I don't have a dime tip carving bar for my powerhead. I use a standard 14" Oregon sprocket tip bar on my saw. However, I have basically adopted the Benzart 101 approach to my more intricate tiki carving - I use everything and anything to remove the wood that needs to go. I still make and sell my chainsaw only pieces, as well as my chainsaw and grinder pieces, but these more involved pieces require every tool I have (and several things I don't) to pull them off. Thanks for stopping by.

-Gman

Hey dude - how about just posting finished pics of the bread and butter tikis? Not all the progress shots, but just a couple of finished ones.

Hewey - OK, OK, OK, OK you guys are beating me down. I may post the next Gman tiki I make, however, if I do, and I hear any crap about chicklet teeth, logs with teeth, or Florida-style tiki carvings I'm gonna go apoplectic. If you notice, I haven't posted a single new carving with any teeth since that whole debate. The last thing I want is for that issue to open up again.

Marcus - thanks for the support. Doing these Maori Tekoteko pieces takes a lot of work. Some folks don't understand what they are all about or how they were proportioned (feet, head, etc.). I will be staining this guy as the color layers are hiding much of his facial features. This one is coming along exactly as planned....so far.

More later....

-Gman

Hey guys,

I didn't mean for the above message to sound harsh....it wasn't intended to be taken that way.

I was back looking at this fellow's work again today and thought you all might like to surf his site too. I found him about 6 months ago - I like what he does. The piece on his homepage is just awesome. The more I look, the more I see. It's all very cool stuff.

Yep, a GMAN original. The moko is really looking great. Any tips on symetry when you draw them? or are you burning through the eraser?

keep at it brah.
