Damn!

Maori guy is bigger than he looked laying down!

Very impressive piece!

Looking forward to seeing it finished!

Just an idea... maybe a dark stain on that guy and if you're up for it get a good paintbrush and paint the moko white?

Would really pop I think!

Today's sunset:


Zaya was here this weekend so we have some rare "in action" shots to document the staining of the big guy

I had to climb on a log to reach the top part


I moved down to milk crate as I got lower


Someone taught Ringo how to pose whenever a camera is taken out:


Working my way down the head


Working in kick back sit down mode


Just about finished


First coat, all done




And some more work done on the table:

I was hoping that the shadows would give it enough pop. Otherwise, I might have gone light stained tiki with dark stained tattoos. It was a tough choice...
Seems to be working so far:

I can always change it if I don't like it.

#1 I don't know why the moon looked so small in the picture? Must be because the tiki is so big. You really had to be there!
#2 This guy's 100% wood. I'd need some rather large shells to cover them. Looked into it, but I would only be able to do donut looking pupil ones. I could paint them white...
#3
Listed in time for the holidays!

For the second time in a row, the first Three Pecker Guys award of 2009 goes to...



... Buzzdog, Lord of the Sharp Edge. For carving above and beyond what is minimally required by Tiki enthusiasts worldwide!

Today's sunset:

I heard the 7 o'clock news update on the radio while I was still working out back. Welcome daylight savings time!

Today, I started by putting another coat of stain on the big guy. Then I spent the rest of the day working on table legs.
Step one was to draw them out


Same thing, three times


After carving:


This was the last picture I took before the light ran out for good outside pictures today:

After this progress shot, I was able to fill in the areas on the side of the tikis' heads with patterns before it got too dark to work.

Can't wait to see the other stuff and see it all in action.



In that case, I should have just painted it all to begin with...
There will always be paint!
It's all coming together now...

Yes! I think I need to add a line on my TC signature that talks about being the two time Three Pecker Guys Award winner as well as producing tiki art for over a decade.

Had a little rain scare today, but it was a false alarm. Hoping the weather holds for at least three more days...

Today's sunset:

It looks like the season of sunsets on the water has come to an end.




Today was "finish carving the table that looks like a drum day."

I started the finishing process by drawing out the three tiki face panels:



Then I carved them:



And finally, I filled in the three panels in between.
Here it is all done:




Next project: Chairs!

Buzzy!

Very nice!

You've got a real groove for the Marquesan work now... a style that is very close to my heart these days.
This table is really sweet... I love the style of the "legs."

The Maori tiki is impressive, and looks great with the stain.

I think I know where it is headed to if I am taking Ben's clue the right way... it will find a great home there.
