Thanks guys for the complements. Mrs. JohnnyP appreciated them.

Gman no the cold did not keep me inside, I went out and carved a bit, not too long though. It was 9 degrees outside and so cold the bar oil in my saw was so thick the chain would not move. Had to keep it rev’ed way up until the bar warmed up. No pictures though. At least I didn't have to quit because it was too warm like you did, lucky.

We did bring in the Mai Kai Tiki after it sat outside for a week freeze drying. He is as done as he is going to be. Here he is inside and with better lighting than the last pictures taken outside at twilight.





These next four are some of my older stuff and because I'm running out of room I am going to sell them, I hope. Admittedly not my best so I am going to sell them cheap. Check the marketplace tikibay post tomorrow if you are interested (or PM me). $20 for the black Ku style and $25 for the others, plus shipping. 15 to 24 inches tall.





Thanks for looking.
JP

That Mai Kai tiki looks great Johnny! The traditional style works well on it.

JohnnyP,

The Mai Kai tiki looks great. The combination of your carving skills and Mrs. JohnnyP's painting skills is a winning combo for sure. Wonderful job!!! I bet he was happy to come inside after a week of standing outside with no clothes on? Yowwie!

He's a keeper alright, sell all those others and give him a place of honor - maybe near the fireplace so he can stay warm. Keep an eye on him though, he looks mischievous

-Gman

Gman, yes he was happy to come inside from the cold. Your tiki is sunning himself next to a warm pool looking all content. Kaha ki'i steered me a direction to find some photos of some Hawaiian weapons. Thanks.

Since today was cold again up here I did these two small ones. I think one is called a "Pahi" similar to Kaha ki'i's (although nowhere near as good). I have no idea what the other one is called.





Thanks for looking.
JP

More nice fancy sticks to beat mean people with, I See. Very well done mate. and the tiki looks GREAT inside. he definitely has his color back, as he was getting kind of cold and pale out there.
Now is the time for a New Cahllenge, a Good challenge, something you don't think you Can do but something you WILL do and do well.
Thanks JP, now get to work..

Love 'em! They're cute yet primitive. Something Bam Bam and Pebbles would use in The Flindstones!

Gman. Thanks again for the teeth, they have had a few fun projects. Check your PM later tonight. The new clubs are red oak, stained with a light color.

Hewey- I bet you some wonderful things, even shark teeth clubs, in your recent voyage, you need to tell the stories and show us art the trip inspired.

Congatiki- Yes I am building an arsenal, somebody has to in case the Jawja Province, Isle of North America decides to raise a ruckus, you are welcome to join this side.

Aldlo, Would that be considered a concealed shark tooth weapon, would that be legal or not?

HMC- The Flintstones rule! My wife just named the last two Pebbles and Bam Bam.

Bete- Thanks for the continued support

Benzart- A good challenge? I have no idea. Your the big kahuna (a well deserved title) around here, what would you suggest? If you were to buy a set of chisels, what brand would you recommend?


Those really, really, really, cheap tikis are still available.

Thanks again.

JP

JP,
Lookin' great as usual. As for the next project....go small for your next challenge. The proportions should be fun to work out, and you can get some killer detail on them. I know you can pull it off.

Aloha JohhnyP!
Hey brah, nice work on the Pahi's! Yes, theyre both "pahi" which basically means "knife"...They werent really used as weapons but more as carving tools and implements used for everyday stuff like small kine fine carving, trimming kapa, skinning bark from olona to make cordage, cleaning & gutting fish, skinning pig, etc....

You really busted those out wikiwiki bruddah! They look great and are probably very strong considering you used oak for the handles! If you need a good hook-up on Genuine Koa, let me know brah. These kine implements were usually made from Milo and Koa and look pono when made from the actual Hawaiian hardwoods...

Just wait until you get the Peter Buck Books! Youre gonna be making all kine different weapons and things li'dat!
Keep up the good work cuz!!!

Malama Pono!
