Thanks for visiting, GMAN, Benella, and Tiki Diablo.



I think I'm done with Wahanui (Bigmouth) here. I found myself doing a lot of smooth work on it trying to get just the right contours. After a brief, yet insightful conversation with 4WDtiki, I decided to put the tool marks back in.



I wanted to give the faceting a sort of uniform feel all the way around the piece. I also broke it up some by having some alternate smooth areas (face, neck, hair). I saved hours and hours of work trying to get it super-duper smooth everywhere by having it mostly textured, so thanks for that, Bill.

It appears to be a bit wet still on the inside, so I think I better wait a while before staining and sealing it.

Bigmouth strikes again!

Thanks for stopping by, pdrake, benella, Tikiduddy, and Benz!

Benella: I'm not sure what's next. Probably something small so I can finish it this year.

Tikiduddy: Bigmouth is 34" tall. It's the biggest carving I've ever made.

Wow, it's great to see him all done! I do like the tool marks, he looks just so sharp and perfect. Something small next? do you need some basswood? Rockler is finally selling some, but I have a lot too. I was gonna pick up some rifflers today, but didn't have time, I think they're really gonna help.

WOW! I missed this thread, major mistake! I've been preparing for a Lono myself, and yours is how I envisioned mine! Dang!
Yours is absolutely right on, beautiful. Good show. Hmmm, I'll TRY to find ways to make mine look different than yours!
Maybe I'll smooth mine out, instead of the chisel look!

I can't say anything nice...that hasn't already been said. So I'll just say nothing at all, except DITTO to all the above.

In the making? He is already a Tiki rock star! Wish I could carve that well. Looking forward to seeing more.
