BK,
That looks fantastic. You are definitely Kahuna of the Polynesian war arsenal. I don't know if it would be a good idea to have that dangerous weapon around a group of grog crazed tiki conventioners but it would be a treat to have some on display at the Tiki Oasis swap meet. Any chance of that?

Unbelieable all the killer work posted this past week. P-pop haven't seen your post yet, whassup? Tikifille, what a great collection of tikis you busted out. The dude withthe tongue looks like he has a nice spot to hang out.
B.K. Dude, do you sleep? Your attention to detail is amazing. I am glad I am not a box laying around the Carvin' hut. After reading yur post about the weapons and then reading the one about the booze and fireworks on the beach, I have a very disturbing Hunter Thompsonesque vision of all you maniacs running loose under an apocalypce sky with primitive weapons. Scaring the crap out of whomever is nearby while you pillage palm logs. Gecko will probally be in bushes with some Wahine, eh Gecko!

Cheers!

Tiki King,
Nice tikis. I also enjoyed the writings (ramblings) from your website. Funny!
BK, yes we are bringing a small group to Palm Springs.
Also, thanks to Chongolio and the pro carvers for encouraging us amatuer carvers. A lot of satisfaction and (one sore elbow.)

OK, well I've finally built up the courage to post some of my Hack-Jobs here for all to see. Please be kind, I'm still a Newbie at all this!


Here's a pic of my first Tiki. This log was started at Sabu's house during our super-secret carving session with the Masked Magician - Chiki Tiki. We didn't get very far that day and as such, I finished it at home. The "weathered" finish is a result of me staining the whole log and then sanding the raised portions with 40 grit.




Here's one I carved from a scrap of Pine that came from a tree my buddy just cut down. As you can see, Pine has different properties to it than Palm. The first two pics is the log as I rough it out.






Being the Newbie that I am at carving, I really jacked up a few things and so, decided to cut my losses and end my carving early. I really wanted to carve my lines deeper and add more detail to this one but I didn't want to waste more time on a tiki that kind of went south so left it kind of half-assed. When I reached a stopping point, I went ahead and sanded it for stain. As you'll notice, I left the skin on the back.






Here's the finished tiki after stain. I really tried the best I could to salvage the log but figured, it's going outside anyway. The stain is still in the process of drying. Once dry, I'll sand it smooth and coat it with some Polyurethane.




After the last one I did, I'm anxious to start a new one however, don't look forward to skinning the log (what a pain in the ass)! I'll post pics when its done.
