Early afternoon update:



Mid afternoon update:



Now:


Hopefully when it's stained the log fronds will mrerge into the carved part a little better

It has that transitioning from the log cliche I've just about run into the ground in my recent work.

I'm just not into doing teeth...

Solved one problem I'd been trying to work through with the body

Pretty much done with it now. There are a few areas that will be worked easier with the dremel that I'll touch up later.

JenTiki: I think I powered on until about 3am...yawn! I'm tired.

BigT: Thanks man. This is a presold tiki so I didn't get to put as much time into it as I would have liked, but how it works in the real world of tiki macronomics.

Now back to that big Lono I was working on...
Buzzy Out!

Today's sunset:

Here comes the storm!

This afternoon, I hollowed out the back to facilitate quicker log drying


A corrollary of doing this was that I was aboout half inch away from doing a cut through between the legs. So, since I was in the neighborhood anyway, I cut it out all the way through:

But now it looks like I need to do the same to the arms too.

Seeksurf: I may compromise and add some lines to do the teeth. Still debating it...

Babalu: Space Hippy's in the house! Welcome back bro! Kiva had a great day today: she got to go through the Weinerschnitzel drive thru with me and got a special treat from the weinerschnitzel guy. Then she took a nap...

Bali Dan: Thanks man! More stuff on the way...hopefully it will good stuff too.

Let it Rain!
Buzzy Out!

That's beautiful stuff Buzzy. If you can't get to the underarm area, it will still be killer. I love where you've been going. Thanks for all the updates. I look forward to them everyday.

That's a good idea. I think I'll start not doing teeth too. Maybe I can get Tikidav to do them for me. Hey, maybe he'll do yours as well and fix your screen door and porch light for Zaya.

GMAN: Yo G! Here's the daily dose:


Last night, I spent a few minutes opening up the areas under the arms

Doing this really gave it the illusion of more depth.

After doing the cut outs, I had to remove some material from the back that was now visible from the front. It made the arms look as wide as the whole piece, as opposed to appearing to be as wide as they were on the actual body:


I needed to cut out more of the material under the armpits, so I used a keyhole cutting bit with my Dremel.

I also used it for the space between the feet and between the legs.

I did most of the sandding on it, and am leaving the tool marks slightly visible.

I'm not going to not do teeth until you start to not do your teeth first. Then I'll not do my teeth right before you do not finish not doing your teeth, and I'll take all the credit again, because I didn't do it first this time too. Furthermore, Bowana, TikiDav, it makes no difference to me, as long as one of you gets something done!

I put my time machine on my new flying carpet!

Today's sunset:




I think it's the solstice tomorrow. Then the sun starts moving north again. That means summer is on the way.

All the tiki stuff I did today was some boring log strippin' and cleaning.
Closetiki: How them logs of yours doing?
