Thanks Kate. I'm happy with Lono's headress, and I've come around to being okay with Kanaloa's. Something about the artist knowing how it was supposed to look.

Craig, thanks on the color. It's Golden Dark Oak Walnut. Two half-cans of leftover stains, mixed together!

Thanks seeks, yup, both were started last Sunday, and finished this Sunday.

Tomorrow, the start of the next order.

There's no mistaking who these are by, whatever style/region you're working in. Great job on both headdresses! Do you do your shadows with the torch? They're always spot-on. I see a lot of tikis that look "overburned" (or underdone!) but you get it just right.

Thank you Buzzard, Spermy, Paipo, Grog, and Thomas!
Spermy, did you say Hi at Oasis? I met so many people... But I'm always up for a commission, so lemme know!
Paipo, Maybe THAT'S what my 'style' is, consistent shading!

Speaking of commissions, I have one for Father's Day, and I started it today. here's where I'm at.


I need to work the Dad's name in the top of the headress, and the 4 daughters' names into the back.

Bill,

Kanaloa & Lono came out excellent. This next one looks to be great, too. Any father would be proud to get that one!

Cheers,

Aaron

Thanks buzzard, AA, and Ben!

I did just a little more on the Kahuna Jay tiki. (that's what I have to carve into the forehead). I carved in the teeth, and part of the headdress.



While I had the camera out, I took two pics of my work area. I know I'm a month late for Show Your Workspace Month, so what!

The outside workshop.


The inside workshop. You can see the outside workshop in the background.


Today I started another commission, and I used a crazy-dangerous tool I borrowed from my neighbor. It's a regular Skilsaw, but has a vertical chainsaw attachment!

It worked perfectly for what I needed done.

These are 37" tall, are 6x8 Doug Fir, and will be going to someone here on TC!

Finished this tiki yesterday.



and then whipped out this tiki for a graduation gift for a friend's son.
Start to finish time - 3 hours! Yes, bare log at 9:30 AM, to stained tiki at 12:30 PM!

He's about 18" tall.

I was real happy the way it came out, lots of personality in a small package.
I thought about keeping him.
