Thanks Clarita!

Here is Big Fink #2, all finished up. I don't think the poly is completely dry yet in these pics, but the wind and sun should fix that right up.





I'm not sure what's up with that last pic, but he's been sanded silky smooth.
Thanks for looking!

Real nice work Mr. Fink....your speed at getting these guys done, and the quality of the carves are quite remarkable.

Finky,

This piece finished up very nicely. You had me worried when you commented that the center was mushy. He looks proud and pretty sitting there in the front yard now! I am impressed my friend, very impressed. I had no doubts that you would kick out some fantastic work when you went big - I was not disappointed.

I'm still looking for a full body from you though........

-Gman

Thanks for the comments everyone. No body for this one either Gman, the wood is too thin. I might have a source for some full logs though, so you'll see one soon.
Here is the beginning of #3. I wanted to try something new. I'm not sure if it's working yet. Oh Well, we shall see. After I add some pupils the eyes should improve some.

Nice stuff Fink. I hear ya about the body. I can see where you might run into trouble trying to do it with this guy. If no body than what will you do with the rest of the log? Inquiring minds wanna know!

It's been slow going for me lately, but here's where I've gotten with #3. I'm not sure where I'm going with it yet, but I'm pretty sure I'll add on some sort of body just for you Gman. I'm thinking he's sort of modern-lono looking?


Benzart called me a yesterday and said, "Hey Finky, I've got some wood for you to take home." It turned out to be 7 huge logs ranging from 3.5 feet to 7.5 feet! I'm hoping to have a very productive summer. Anybody want my first full-body tiki?

Good work on your latest one Finkdaddy, I really like the open spaces, you are
off to another great start with this. Also looks like a pretty cool sign for
the Leeward Lounge....are we gonna see a full pic of that?
