Man, that's some of the cleanest, keenest work I've ever seen. The force is strong in this one!

SWEET. Nice work. The flair on that log really adds an extra dimension to it.

Maruru for all the good words and congrats, you guys are all amazing carver so it means a lot.
I've been getting inspired by some of the Coco Joes tiki's, the lines on some of them are just amazing. I'm staining the bark with a light coat of brown, and the carve will just be varnished with a satin finish, giving the tiki a nice golden glow... hopefully. I might add more details later, but I'm not sure, the bottom part of the log is pretty coarse. I used a barbecue brush to make it look more coarse, it gives it a weathered look that is kinda cool. I'll add some close-up later so you guys can see the texture it creates. I'm not even sure how i am going to sign this thing, some parts are just crumbling down, I hope the finish will help, if it doesn't I might have to use some resin as the last coat... we'll see.

Patience and skillful execution results in this..some of the most impressive palm carves I've seen in awhile - really! The Ku's chisel work is like fine bristle painting - very, very studious obviously.

Can't wait to see more of the drum too..

Thanks for keeping us updated with your posts. Cheers to you Tahitiki!

Tahitiki, I can't Believe how Perect you get your carvings, Even in palm! Your KU is good enough to belong in a Museum. I Love the fact that you take the time to finish and clean every little part of the piece,Absolutely nothing left undone. I'll have to blow up a photo and see if you might have left some little sliver unfinished, but I think it will be an exercise in futility. You earned total respect from this corner!


I don't know for sure yet but there might be a little piece of undone trash under the left eye near the bottom I'll have to look closer, but then he isn't quite finished yet soooo?

Thanks Ben, it's not that perfect for the texture is pretty coarse. Here is some new shots while I'm varnishing it.








Little upgrade on the drum:

Yes, that looks like a well aged Washingtonian palm.. I've tried to grow them like that but they always look different somehow. The eyes are never straight?
