Damn Octane, you're pretty good!!

For redwood I use Howard's Citrus Wax after burning and cleaning. Don't know if it would work well with ash. But you could try it on the back maybe.

Pimp recognize pimp. I'm gonna say right here that Octane and Monkeyman are brawlers. They're country grammar. They may end up making Gecko, Me, Keigs and Lake look like some played out, 3rd base, Kangol sh*t

I am constantly inspired by the talent on TC. It's very encouraging to see artists in a variety of mediums. This whole Tiki movement is going to be huge mon.

Speaking of mediums,.....What do call a psychic midget that escaped jail?........a small medium at large. .....yuck, yuck...get it?

Octane... that's hot stuff... ash is fun... did some tiki lamps out of it a little while ago... holds great detail and I love the grain in it...

Damn, I gotta step up... I finished three in the last week and a half, I just have to shoot digital and get them posted...

BK... can't wait to see how the 7 footer is progressing... looking forward to the day I surpass the 5 foot mark!

thanks jungletrader, BK, Lake, Tikitony for the complements. though i have been told even a blind squirl can find an acorn every once in a while.

BK i would also agree with lake on wanting to see how that big dog (7 ft) is progresses. your in progress shot are cool to look at and learn from.

Lake, i like your carvings from the past posts and it would be great to see your new ones.

TikiTony those little guys look good, it has to be a challange to carve something so small.

thanks

The bar is getting awfully high in here. Killer work everybody. Octane that one is coming out nice. Good luck with the stain. I can never get them to look ancient like the dark Maori by Gecko. It looks like its been around forever. BK, thanks for the post of the progress shots. Very helpful to see how it getting done. How long have you been carving for? You have a ton of tools! Where is everybody buying there chisels? I searched around for the brands (Sheffield and Henry Taylor )suggested but came up with nothing locally. I just ordered the catalog from lee Valley and perused the website. Lots of choices . Thanks again, BK for da link I have be putting off any new carvins till I get some decent tools to work with but Seeing all the new post is getting me ansy to get another log.

Thanks lake, I just ordered the catalog. Now I just have to decide which one to start out with. There are some pretty good looking kits at both sites.

the chisel i use are just Home depot bought. they are Marples, and a carving set they sell Buck Brothers. i also have some older chisels from my dad as backups. i have no idea about chisel quality, but on the budget i'm on these fit the bill.

Sweet work Octane! How much does the moai weigh? Not only is that 4 foot but the width is really big... I take it that's a palm trunk?
