I admire your patience. This piece really grabs me. It looks like it would be easier to carve a rice crispy treat.

Thanks all of you for all the good words, I'm done with the KU, just need to get the bottom real flat now. The sander just broke, need another belt. I'm working on a base for the KU as well. It has 3 feet, one is Hawaiian, a Tahitian and a Maori face. Here is some pict below.
I just finished the drum last night but I don't have any picts yet. I also gather 2 palm logs this weekend, a 5 and a 6 footer.










Enjoy!

Beautiful work on that KU base, Tahitiki. I envy the concept...that you incorporated three different face styles into one object speaks volumes about your creativity. Kick ass bro!

I'm patiently awaiting future pics showing your finished KU in all his glory.

Oh yeah, the drum? Please do post a pic of the drum!!

Thanks for sharing.

Everything you do is so well thought out and executed.

A wonderful concept for the base, and from the progress you've shown, you're nailing this one!

I love the whole idea of the tiki on a base, great stuff!

Great idea on the base. I've thought about doing the same thing myself for one of the short tikis I did. He sits beside my fireplace and is partially blocked by the fireplace hearth. Nice job!
