I saw this messed up tiki the other day. My friend and I were talking about why it was so wrong. We came to the conclusion that the maker of the particular tiki oversanded it. That is a problem: too much sanding.
Sanded:



I gave him a "Coco Joe's lean", inspired by a few posts on the collecting thread. If I make enough of these, then all you guys will not have to put your tikis in the oven, because eventually it will be branded in your heads that small tikis need to lean forward like this:

One of the undocumented effects of global warming is that it makes coco joes tikis lean. Turn off your ovens, please!!! You will only make it worse for the rest of us.

Buzzy Out!

Buzzy this tiki looks like he has an attitude. Almost like he is saying don't @%&# with me. It looks great.

The stain give him a nice look. The veins of the wood are beautiful.

That ficus really finishes nice. The interesting thing about it is that you can't see the grain all that great till you put stain on it. Keep em coming.

I almost want to answer this question...


I was watching the marathon of BarrettJackson yesterday, getting real excited about this year's event, when I started carving another piece of ficus.
I've been trying to retain the original shape of the block of wood through the carving, so here is my "Cubey Ku", just started:

I feel like doing some big stuff now...

I warmed up today by hacking into the corner piece for the perpetual tiki fence project that I'm working on.

Then I worked on the Cubey Ku

way earlier tonight:



Moments ago:




It's my first day back to work after vacation, so even though it's late, I'll still stain this guy. Probably only take an hour anyway.

Buzzy Out!

AlohaStation: It's like magic, isn't it? I love it when the stain get wiped off and the pattern of the grain emerges. I always give it a "Whoa!" when I see it. This one turned out pretty cool too:





If I cannot sleep tonight, I'm going to contemplate a hand rubbed finish or a shiny brushed on poly finish while I lay there. Right now I'm leaning towards the shiny finish like the last one. I wonder how I'll feel in a sleep deprived state tomorrow...

Buzzy Out!

Bay Park, you are becoming quite a Pro with that Hook knife of yours and you have the sanding down Pat too. I'm happy you found this ficus stump to turn into tikis, it's truely magical watching the transformation. It's So Magical, you forgot at least 2 whole dayz of SunSets, been raining out there or sumpthin?
Nice work, Bad memory.

Yeah that ficus looks like nice stuff. I have a ficus in my office about 3 inches 'round at the base. In about 20 years I might get a piece that big at the rate I'm going!

Those guys are coming up nicely - the stain and grain are really nice!

Like the Cubey Ku but he seems somewhat creepy to me, kinda like something from Killer Clowns from Outer Space.

Ben: This piece had this BITE to it; I could barely run the blade through it. It seemed to stick no matter which way I tried to cut the grain with the hookknife. I used my smallest flexcut googes as palm gouges because it was too dangerous to try the small knife. It would lock and slip too unpredictably. I used the hook knife to do the finer shaping and detailing towards the end. I also used the dremel instead of the hookknife for the headress lines, because the hookknife just wasn't liking this piece of wood when I tried that too. This stump is great, I have one more that looks even better, and a four foot log of it. Lots of ficus in my future. As for the sunsets, last thing I remember was listening to the afternoon radio during a short break....ZZZZZZZZZ

This piece measures 5"h x 3.25" w x 3.25"d. Just a couple more years to go on yours...
Make a pendant! I heard there are about 7 types of ficus around here, and i'm not sure what type this is. It is different from the first type of ficus I carved. But the grain is still as good as the first piece. I'd recommend trying a piece if one comes available, outside the office, that is.

Oh no! You said the c-word! Now Zaya will not sit in the same room as this piece...
It does have a peculiar look to it. Haven't thought of the Dickies in a long time. It does kinda remind me of those clowns.

Buzzy out!
