Many thanks everyone!

Finally got a second to catch my breath around here... but not for long as I've got to continue packing!

Ohana!

Much thanks Seeks! I've really been stoked on your tikis, and I've decided to dive into some Hawaiian style for a bit!

He's done!







What a fun carve!

I wondered why this log was hidden away in a dark corner of the studio.

Now I know it was just waiting for the right time to emerge!



Thats fantastic looking. Nice job.

Chimp and shirtman... many thanks for your kind compliments!

Many years of trial and error before arriving at this method of finishing.

I think the finish of a tiki sort of develops along with an artist's distinctive style... each one is different!

Experiment with everything, and above all have fun!

Damn you Granite!! That a great carve. Beautiful tiki. GROG want. Granite, you lucky bastard. It's a good thing you see it before GROG.


P.S. The Marquesan pole is excellent, too, but the Hawaiian tiki is over-the-top AWESOME!!

Carl, thanks so much for giving the Ku a new home! Enjoy him, he's a very special tiki, very hard to part with!

Great to see you again at Ohana!



Grog, Kahaka and Conga... thanks kindly for all you kind words!

Recovering a bit from 2 weeks on the Northeast Coast, but I'll be back to carving very soon!

Next up on the event calendar is the Chef Shangri-la Anniversary Partyin Chicago and Festiki in Dayton, Ohio!

Chop, chop!
It felt good to get back to the chisels for a few hours today!
Here are the sequence shots from today's 4 hour carve of "Nui Niho."
His name is Hawaiian for "Big Teeth."

11" W x 24" H
Yellow Pine
