Here is the next BenZart thread.
You can see the previous thread
HERE and for the First Benzart thread look HERE
Here are the carvings I will be working on and until they are done, I will not start any new ones. Most of these are spoken for, like the 2 12" pieces to be Tap handles which TikiBird has been patiently waiting for for at least a year or more. Bete has been waiting for the BigBenZart Mahogany piece forever.










The ones unspokenfor will got to people waiting on the list. Thanks all you guys for your patience.
Enjoy______________

Benz, how do you decide on the character of these pieces, since you do so many at the same time? they are quiet different from each other. Just curious as to how. thanks.

Thanks GMAN.
The Mahogany one with the curly headdress, has been sitting here laying around watching the goinz on and gettin happy knowing his turn was coming. I had to let him dry out a bit and he is ready to go.

Swampy, Everything looks like it is a GO from here for a few daze. Next tuesday I go to a hospital for a trial run on a morphine pump which will put me out of comission about a week and if they decide to install the contraption I'll be laid up another 2 weeks or so,,, they Don't know. MEanwhile back at the ranch, these guys are pieces I started and never finished for various reasons. They will be finished now. When these are done i might feel like carving something Not on the list, which in that case, I will offer it to peeps already on the list. I will try to be as fair as possible and give everyone a chance at getting one of my worthless peices .
I also will try not to keep posting duplicate pic's and I will Post fewer pic's to speed things up.

Hiltiki, these pieces each has his own personal feeling and mana, which is different from any of the others. When I pick him up, his charm comes through and follows through to the original , his flow is maintained.Thanks for the great question.


HEy McTiki, come around one of these dayz!!
Yeah I could create and sell the rough-outs but they wouldn't be done and that is the fun; creating the idea and roughing out that idea and then finishing it where it ALl comes together and becomes the magical thing that we all love

Freddimon, Thanks for the props. I Hope I can keep enough stuff goin on to keep you enthused enough to keep carving and keep you Wanting to crve and learn. For my mental stability I need to keep things different and fresh. If I start to get like a cookie cutter, I would shrivel up and float away So if that fits your needs, you will find it here. My newest tool is the wood burner which is acting like a small V-Liner which adds dark color as it goes, I am still using all the other chisels, grinders, chain saws and chain disc cuttersand hand chisels mostly. Each piece of wood demands different tools
Well thanks again everyone for starting this thread off nicely. Goodnight. More tomorrow.
PS, I have been thinking about getting a tattoo done, any suggestions? I want to do one of my carvings on my arm so maybe we'll have a contest More later.

tattoo sounds cool man! As much as I like the comp idea, go with what YOU want. What tiki have you carved that means the most to you? Every time you look at the tatt, it will remind you of that carving, the reason it speaks to you, the people who are now your friends because of it...

Benz, the best thing about your tikis is the quality of the immense variety, would all agree!!?? I wanted to ask you... if to speed things up, rather than use the burner, could one use a fine tip sharpie to darken the carved fine lines, then stain over?

Benz,

If you get a tat, it will HAVE to be a Lono with the curved headdress. I can't see it any other way...
