Hey Ben, can I come over too? Then we can find out if it's really a log or one of his
pendants magnified.
Nice job Finkdaddy.

I've got this guy a little further along and cleaned up a lot more. I'm visiting Ben today, so I'll post a pic when I get back home.

Thanks Gman. Stop staring, you're making me nervous.

Hey Duddy. It's a palm log, split in half. I've forgotten what kind of palm it is though.

Don't worry Ben. I've already started the mouth and he has a very stiff upper lip. I'll bring him with me later.

Thanks Conga! That means a lot coming from you. The log is pretty tall, but it's so dry it's as light as one of my pendants!

Boy Flynny, I can't imaging how tall you'd have to be to wear this as a pendant! Maybe it will just have to be a fridge magnet instead.

Mahalo!

I had the pleasure of meeting AlohaStation and Wplugger yesterday at Benzart's house. If you ever get the chance to hear one of Wplugger's stories, do it! This guy is a natural born narrator! With the his and Alohastation's advice, and angle grinder, I got a lot further on my Big Fink #1. I had a great time and I hope to take you up on that cocktail offer, Tom!

Thanks Conga. I didn't start going that deep, it just got deeper as I tried to even out the two sides! Too bad it didn't work. I did the rough cuts with the chainsaw, and the rest is with a chisel. I took off the bark and smoothed it a bit with an angle grinder.

Finky

I was cool meeting you and the invitation is always open. The tiki is looking really good. Now that the bark was removed it really has a great presence. The angle grinder isn't always the most popular tool for carving, but on a dry log like that one it is indispensable. Keep us updated

Finky, I can't believe how well you are doing on this first Big Tiki. You have adapted to the tools very well and it looks like you are not afraid to go deep for the sweet detail. I'll see you later today.

Thanks again AlohaStation, your tips were a big help.

McTiki, is ambiartstic a real word? I'm gonna have to look it up.

Thanks Hewey. How are those #1 prints comming along?

Ben, big mahalos to you my friend.

Here's what I just finished. I'm looking for suggestions on what to do with the 20 or so inches below his mouth. I've been sketching with the chalk for a while now with no results.


Thanks again everyone.

Prints not coming along yet...

Sorry Gman, the wood just wouldn't allow for the body we talked about, but with some neighborly advice from Ben we worked out this design. It way trickier than Ben would lead us to believe. There's a bunch of lines that need to be tightened and straightened, but I'm hoping to start sanding tomorrow. I figure if I start sanding now, I should be finished by February.



That's all for tonight! Mahalo!

Incredible work here Finkdaddy, working at the feet of Master Ben is paying huge dividends
for you. This is a great piece of work and you should be very very happy. The scrolls
at the bottom are really killer. I don't know what else to say...
