not sure i'm going to make one or not. i just really like the look of the wood, when you showed the picture before the stain went on. it had a nice color and look to it, something i hadn't seen before. by the way it turned out great, the aging technique you used looks perfect.


Tiki freak those two tikis you finished are looking good or as you say (badass).

Man, for what little it's worth, Octane, I think you're on fire, man....I've never seen somebody improve/get more complex so fast or so prolifically. You could make a lot of money at this and even more so if you keep the steady improvement in quality going.

Now, now BK i don't think i deserve all that, though i do appreciate it ALOT, and by the way any information from you on carving is held very high, as your work speaks for it self.

well as far as making some money at carving that might happen (though i still have every carving i'v done), as a few people have shown some interest including a local resturant. but who knows.

here is one i'm in the middle of it's a Moai. it will be 46 inches tall when finished. this is the other half of the log (palm) that i carved the first Moai out of a few weeks ago.

I've discovered something about half-rounds recently...They're damned great!..Two grooves about an inch deep up the back and good brushing of satin urethane and they hardly ever split...they are versatile,they also dry fast and clean, and they give the same look and front surface area while conserving vital space AND can easily be screwed to a wall or doorframe. Not only that, but half the weight, which is a good thing when you have back and hip joint problems at 32 from playing human forklift for half your life! I'm still doing full round poles, too, of course, but the half-rounders are going to be a permanent addition to my media now. Most any tiki you look at is mainly front-image area anyway.

T.F Those things are wicked lookin' Those Muthas would keep the ol ladies out of my garden for sure. Personally, not a fan of the metal nose ring though. Maybe if it was made out of a bone and looked more native style it would be cool. I am just not a Nose ring kinda guy.
Hey Octane, That one is starting to look like Conan O'brien. Just Kiddin'
Those are some deserved props comin' from the Kahuna. Nice work!
SCD, BK, Gecko, I bet all the girls go "Zazz" when you three enter the lounge.

well here is the Moai almost finished (95%). i have to cut the bottom off so he will stand up straight (the only power tool that will be used), and do a little finish work. He will have to sit for about a week to let him dry out (as this peice of palm was really wet), so i can do some sanding and finish work. he isn't exact to the actual Moai. i might add some carvings on the back like the real Moai have or add some of the Easter Island writing.

Hey Basement Kahuna- I guess I take this "teach so you get the summer off" thing seriously. I've been in Yosemite, Jalama (a Cali beach camp place), and cross country for 3 weeks. I'll cruise over to my sister in law's and post pictures a piece I finished in June. I'm finishing up a 7 ft. piece (that I started in 2001--what a slacker!) Then you're up. (Maybe I should just give you the orig.) How about a X-mas delivery? My work ethic needs help. Drop me a line et nous pouvons parler.
