Finky Looks Great! I Love the Macro shots too. The only bad thing about them is that Every little ding and imperfection shows up. But that is a good thing if you use it before the finishing. lookin Good.

Thanks everybody! You're not kidding about the macro showing everything, geez!

Here is some progress pics on the piece of wood I've been trying to pound into submission. A ways to go yet, but you get the idea.

Ben, what do you think of the curves now? I'm not sure about the mouth area, maybe it's not right yet? I decided to round out the head too, it looks better this way.




Thanks for looking! Any advice or critique are very welcome on this guy.

Finky,

He looks like one of the "Stray Cats"!! I love him! I'm gonna have to cry foul though.....how come you get to play with Benzo all the time now? And where did you get that fantastic piece of wood? No fair! I'm moving to Port St. Lucie - with my bolt cutters!

Ok....I'm moving to Florida too! This just isn't fair that you get to hang with
the Benz and get two-toned wood to play with. Any other houses available in the
neighborhood?

Conga and any others interested, there are Lots of homes available, just Begging for someone to come and stay. There are 2 houses on my street for rent/sale, COME ON DOWN! We could have our own tiki carving community. Now wouldn't that be Great?

Gman, come on over, but leave the bolt cutters behind! I still need my fingers!

Conga, There are several houses on my block for sale at great prices. Of course, you have to love the color pink.

Thanks again to everyone, especially Ben who has been a huge help, a terrific inspiration, and a wonderful friend.

As for that wood throwing thing... I was having a really bad day and had no business carving in the first place.

Here is the progress on the Moai. I'm pretty sure he's finished except for a couple layers of clear.


The grain on this wood is amazing, even on the toggle!

Thank you Ben, I couldn't have done it without you!

Here he is, all finished up. There are a few coats of Krylon clear on him and it really brought out the gorgeous color of the wood. Ziricote is very strange to carve. The light colored wood is like a normal hard wood. The dark colored wood is a deep, rich purple swirl and is hard as nails. The weird thing about the dark wood is that despite being so hard, it was very oily and almost sticky. So if you carved or sanded in the direction of dark wood to light, you left dark purple streaks on the light parts that had to be sanded off. The smell of the wood is heavenly when you carve it. It smells like some kind of Indian incense.
Here he is:






I'll post him in the Marketplace forum later this morning.
Thanks again for looking!
