Aloha friends,

Thanks to tok-tok, seeksurf and hiltiki for visiting my thread and your nice words.
Yes, it works good with Yogurt. Its not complicated, it stays on and I think it looks realy natural.
While I colored it, I sometimes mixed a little bit water by.

I have two new pictures of the door for you. I colored it with the same method.
Than I brushed the door with a steel brush and finished it with wax.

Greetings,

Haikai

Love the doors! The coloring is great! I don't understand your comment about the steel brush.... wouldn't that scratch the wood? They look so nice and clean.

Hi,

Thanks, seeksurf! The next step I will create ist the interior of the box. An A-frame shack, a fire place, palms .... I will post the pics, if I have done the next steps. I try to be busy!

TheBigT, first I mixed Yogurt with pigments and colored the wood. I used a lots of pigments and so the color was very top-dress and for my liking too clean. So I used a steel brush to remove a littel bit of the color.
Very careful and only with the direction of the wood grain.
After that I used an old flannel and polished it a little bit with wax to close the wood pores.

Have a greet weekend,

Kai

Happy to see you're back my friend.
Very nice work on the outside part of the box. Amazing how you colored the thing with your pigments and I'm sure you've stopped breathing during the step with the steel brush

Mahalo,

Benjamin.

Hi guys!

Thanks benella! I hope you are alright and busy in carving.

And now here, I have some funny pics for you. Last weekend I visited a friend in Munich.
He is a realy hot rod and custom car freak and started with a new self-construction project.
He wants to built a single seater and I helped him to carve a model for the cars tail.
Just have a look! Mahalo, Kai

The door has turned out great. I love it very much. I am very anxious to see how the project will go on.
How is it going with your US-dispatch?

Aloha,

Meheadhunter, yes you are right! When I was finshed with the carving job the garage looked like a cabinetmaker's workshop. You have to break an egg to make an omelet!

Benzart, thanks for visiting my thread. Im glad that you like my last things I have created. Hope you are fine! One time I will attend at a carving workshop with you.

Clarita, how's it going? Yes, yogurt! And it works well. I read also at Basement Kahunas thread, that its possible to use buttermilk. Greetings to Argentina!

harro, hahaha! Sure, a wood Hot Rod for my friend Berny. "Berny Rubble"
It was a funny job and a challenge to carve a accurate form for his car.
When hell get on with his car project, Ill post some pictures.

tok-tok, thanks for the entry. Ill do my best to post the next pictures soon.
My next step is to create the interior of the box. Yesterday, I searched at a model making forum and find out, how to create a self-made palm. Next week Ill start with it.

Last week I send ramba-zambas and my package to the US. Wow 120 ! We were to late and had to send it with air mail. I hope I will be a great show. We have to ask Tom, that he should make some pictures.

Thanks all and have a great weekend.
Cheers, Kai

Hi friends,

I have some new pictures for you. Im just working on a new carving job.
A 27 inch high KU out of cherry-wood. I also build me also a better workbench.
Here you can see the workbench and the first pics of the KU.
Hope you enjoy them! Mahalo,

Kai
