Thanks to all!

I took home a couple more of those 6x8 pieces. Here's a sort of before and after shot, so you can really see what I'm working with.

I started in on the shorter piece tonight, all excited to do another Moai. It fought me all the way. Those cracks did me in, two large pieces split off, and the wood is in the trash.
But I learned something, respect the crack!
I'll try again tomorrow.

Yeah, with kiln dried lumber like that those cracks can go all the way through and on a short cut-off theres not much holding it together. You can vill the voids with plenty of glue and clamp it a bit before you even start and it will hold together. Nice stuff you Did do though, I Love both Moai.

Ben, I'll have ample opportunity to try gluing the cracks, I brought home half the pile of these today.

A couple pieces are actually clear, but most have a few knots. There's a 5' piece of 12x12 that I may grab, if I can get a hand lifting it.

This past Saturday, I had a booth at a Luau fundraiser for the local outrigger club. Here's my stuff. I came home with three fewer tikis.

There were two different hula halaus, and a reggae band.


See you all at the Oasis!

This moai looks like a perfect candidate to spit some water to become a water feature!
