Wonderful carve!

Love the head dress... something very original and eye catching!

Nice deep mouth and some greatly detailed chompers!


The other Ku turned out great also... very resourceful using those candle holders to free the tiki inside!

You do very well thought out and super clean work, and these last two offerings are no exception.

Hi Tahitiki,

I have to say that I said myself by seeing the first picture : ho no, another teasing picture and we'll have to wait a lot of time to see the masterpiece finished.
Then I got to the bottom of the page, breathless and said to my wife to come to see if this thing was real and WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW ! We both said : amazing mo' perfect than perfect one !
The Ku head is perfect but the last one is more perfect than perfect !

Thanks for the motivation !

Mahalo,



Benjamin.

TikiMango, Ben, drasticwagon, Lake Surfer, benella and BigT, thanks all of you guys for such great comments, I appreciate a lot your feedback.
Ben... better than chicken soup... nice!!! you know, carving for me is becoming my soul food, it's the best way for me to disconnect fully and put my mind to rest, an awesome feeling.

Benella, you said: ho no, another teasing picture and we'll have to wait a lot of time to see the masterpiece finished... man, I'm the slowest carver in the world I guess, when I read other posts and check you guys work, I'm always amazed at how fast you guys are... amazing. Glad miss Benella loves the carve too.

Regarding the headrest, I was trying to come up with a different style, I just wish I had given the headrest more of a shape (before carving the curves) instead of just following the lines of the log. Or maybe make the mouth a 1/4" smaller the the headrest... some like that. I guess I'll just have to make a bigger one one day and fix all the issues I haven't addressed on this one. I'm also wondering if I should cut the space between the teeth all the way done or not.

Big daddy, Clarita, seeksurf, Grapa-RuHa, surfintiki and Watango thanks for the praises.
Regarding the body I was going for that chiseled Hawaiian look you know. I'm pretty happy by the way it came out.
As I was checking you guys messages I couldn't help noticing how cool TC is. On this page so far there is posting from 5 different countries. Argentina, Australia, France, Netherlands and the US including five states. I found that way cool.
