Loki,

Just plain awsome! I love the hollowed out eyes, and the finish is fantastic!

That's waaaay cool. Nice finish too! May have to try a mask--I get palm logs occasionally that are no good for carving full body tikis, maybe I could salvage enough from my bad logs for this kinda thing. Keep up the awesome work.

Hey all, I've been busy carving...i'll do a big pic post when i complete some of the many i have going...I've been getting mask orders and it's been keeping me busy...

Rodeo and JP, thanks for the bump. Glad to know you are still interested in my stuff.

Tiki Duddy, the mask in that pic is coconut palm, which is rough and stringy when being carved, but once you start sanding, it gets smooth like glass...lots of sanding. Then I use Minwax Poly Satin finish and sand with 220 between each coat. I'd say there were at least 5 coats on that guy...I always overkill the poly, but down in the hot Florida sun even 5 coats of good poly needs to be redone at least once a year.

I've got a huge slit drum getting close to being finished, a 3 foot ficus that is going to a neighbors yard,two masks orders in process, various small projects that need to get finished. And one project for me, that i'm just getting into. Of course that one only gets work when i find time...

StumpGrinder is working on a mug. It is sculpted and were about ready to send if off to Helztiki and Poptiki for a few test runs. Were looking forward to seeing the results. Again, i'll wait for pics until they are finished. We want to make sure it works before posting. Hang in there.

Hey JP it is HOT down here and August is the worst. I can only work a few hours before i'm exhausted. The problem is the heat just stays even into the night and it just wears you down. But that is what rum is for. Still hoping things are going well for you. Fingers still crossed.

Well with the new image tool i have no excuses to put it off. Here is the other moai mask that was sent to VA to live.





I added a light kit on it so it can cast an erie glow. Sorry about the crappy pics but it looks much better in person.




Mahalo for looking.

WAY COOL!

A pair of those on either side of a door guarding the entrance..... Colored lightbulbs, yellow maybe, in the light kit..... A wahine with a Mai-Tai on the other side of the door......

You work on the masks, I will work on the Wahine with the Mai Tai

I'm stoked to see some new work from you - that moai looks great, if somewhat scary. I'm a big fan of the "hollow eyes" look.
