JP, the Lono looks excellent. I've tried a few copies, and it's always given me a better appreciation of the original and the artist and taught me a few things to boot. I know what you mean about sanding, I don't know anyone who likes it. The last tiki is pretty impressive, maybe he needs his own personal ad.

Too bad you can't make the Tennessee carving gig. This looks to be something that doesn't happen too often. You are one of the folks that are making this board a happening place. Thanks for sharing your work!

Aaron

JohnnyP,

The Lono looks tight! I'm really digging him. This carving really shows what you can do . We need better pics though, it's hard to see what's going on with him. I know the flash killz the pics, but try some no flash shots out in the sun? From what I can see, he is going to be fantastic.

As for the other guy, DAMN! You better get him out of the house quick before he hurts someone with that thing. JEEZ!

I'll have to ask my girlfriend but she'd probably say a tiki with so much to be proud of shouldn't languish under the bed with your lost socks. I'd put him on our front porch where he could proudly wave his ding-a-ling at the tourists sailing on the bay!

Thanks Guys,

The free tiki is going to live with Hodadhank. Conveniently I am going to be traveling there in the next few weeks.

Benzart- I appreciate the encouragement. I've been working on the lono today and have decided to hurry and finish it. Not to the level I would have wanted originally but there are a lot of checks and cracks in the wood. No matter how good I finish it, the tiki still won't look great so why spend a lot more time on it. Time to cut the loss. The practice was good and the next time I won't make all of the 150 mistakes I made this time. I should have started with a better log, but this was the last what I thought was good logs. I have to go searching for more soon.

AA- Thanks for the great comments.

JP

I noticed on page 1 of this post a spread leg figure atop the entryway to your tikiland. Looks like a dilukai figure from Micronesia, which would be placed above the entrance to the Men's house (bai). I have a few pictures of them from Pelau (Belau). Nice work, the drum hides her hoohoo... haha! She's flanked by figures just as Dilukai usually is, nice! I never realized the enchanted tiki room had a bit of Micronesian influence as well as Poly and Melanesian, your version made me see it in a new light. Great carvings!

Hello,

Mai Tai Matty- I hope I don't make a 150 mistakes on the next one, but if I do you can have it.

Finkdaddy- I've learned a lot from everybody here, they helped me along. I love looking at everybody's work and try to see how they did what they did.

Onatiki- I'll be in San Diego April 9 and 10. Not for Oasis though.
Are you going to be around?

Moondance- Welcome Back! We missed you. Thank you for the complement.

Sneakytiki- Those figures may have originally be influenced by the dilukai figure from Micronesia, but mine were from the Tiki Room in Disneyland. It's nice to know the real origin. Your paintings are great, looking forward to your tiki paintings.

Gman- I'm brining it on- here it is.

The Benzart inspired Lono is finished. Thanks Benzart, I learned a lot and I have to say again I respect your skill immensely. Any misinterpretation is my fault. Here are some pictures poolside Gman style.







Stained a mixture of walnut and red mahagony.







Remember the "Perflounder" . Here it is stained in red mahagony.


In traderjim6781's post Feelin' Zombified said we should do a home bar Crawl. I'll volunteer to start at our house. Our bar is outside so it has to be somewhat warm out for us. How does sometime towards the end of May sound for the Michigan folks?

Thanks for looking. Have a great day.

JP

The lono looks great. Nice to see the snow is melting in the background too.

Johnny it looks like you learned your Benzlessons very well....this is a keeper...even with the
crack that you were concerned about. Another fine "Up North" Tiki.

HAppyHappyHappy, is all I can say about how you did that Lono. Sweeet. I Think I need an assistant to do a lot of my rough and detail work, That leaves me sitting around giving orders and watching. You could be that guy, but you'd have to work cheap..
Seriously John you should be very proud of that Benzart. There was not much about it that was easy, but you made it look so.

JohnnyP,

Dude, that kicks major a$$! He looks so good man...

Are you going to hit him with 3-4 coats of poly when the weather warms up a bit? That would really bring out the grain and sharpen him up.

As for your "Gman style" pics pool side...I dunno...That looks more like the "JohnnyP Glacier style". I don't do "frozen" anymore. If my pool isn't in the mid to high eighties, I ain't in it!

Congrats on finishing up the Lono. You did a great job on a very tough subject. You say you did 150 things wrong; all I can see is all the things you did right. Way to go, he's a piece to keep and be very proud of (until you make one better). I'm sure you made Benz smile today! I know I'm smiling

-Gman
