Here is the latest project. Layout and roughout cuts are complete:



The lower face is cut out, just don't have a picture of it. This one is going pretty fast and should be onto the sanding tomorrow.

Cool picture of Norm. Is it autographed?

I missed the sali finished you posted a few weeks ago. Nice. How did the marq turn out after stain?

It's either Bob Villa, that other guy that used to work with him who now has his own show, or it's Mike Watt. It's hard to tell.

By the way, I think your tikis look terrific. I don't have the tools yet to try a big tiki, but when I do I hope they turn out half as good as yours did.

Thanks everyone for the comments. The tiki is just about ready to be sanded after some final detail work. This one is turning out really nice I think. I am going to be trying a new staining method on this one that I have been testing. I think it is going to give it a great finished look. Here are a couple shots as of this morning:



JohnnyP- The stain on that last Marq turned out really good. The combination of stain and torch work on the pine gave him a nice contrast in the final coloration. Here is a link to the final product:

As far as the picture on the wall, yes it is Norm. It is autographed and everyone with a shop needs one. I'd like to say that Norm is a personal friend but, I will let you in on my "secret" method for obtaining his signature:

Check out the site. It has a wealth of information and also a schedule and cam so one can watch the New Yankee Workshop being filmed.

Lastly, here is a shot of some blanks for some upcoming projects. Again, these are from almost 2" thick oak floorboards from an old cotton warehouse. Man, I wish I could have a ton of this stock.

Well, the 3 footer is just about done. I stained this one darker then I normally do and it turned out real nice. You can't see as much of the grain as in others, execpt for the back, but it does have an old-timey look. Here is a pic:



For a couple more pics or the opportunity to get this one, check out this thread:

Here is the latest project. This one was going fast until a nasty flu bug hit me. But after about two weeks, he is just about ready for his stain bath. This one is going to be darker like the last one. Here are a couple pictures:






I will post a couple more once I get the finish on in the next couple days. Enjoy!

I think you've hit a hit! Very original and still drips with vintage tiki mana...love them.

Wow, he's looking really nice. Wish I could have made it to your place last week, next time for sure when we stay longer.

Thanks for the kind words all. This one might be the last one I can do for a little bit as we are in the middle of a move. Last night we finished packing up or tiki room. Pretty sad to look into the room now. We never would have guessed, but we had over 15 large boxes full of tiki. Now let's just hope they all make it safe. We are moving to Atlanta this weekend. The new house has a decent shop in the basement and a nice backyard for carving. So keep an eye out, I hope to start carving again ASAP once we get set up over there.

Bullet, thanks for posting the pic of the two guys watching over all the little ones. Glad that you are enjoying them and again, Thanks!

This one is just about done, I just need to add the final topcoat. Will post a pic later of the finished product.
