Thanks guys!
tikigodz, I'll be staining them tomorrow, but it'll just be a light golden oak to cover that "just carved" whiteness. No sealant on these, except I'm thinking about sealing the tops after this coming summer. They should be fairly dried out by then, and having the top surfaces sealed will prevent rain from soaking in.
Everything else will be allowed to weather.

Today I did a little minor touchup and sanding, added a little bit of detail, then torched and sanded.
Here's what they look like now.

By the way, the owner wanted a Ku sticking out his tongue, that's why it has one.

That big white area on the lips and teeth is the sun.


I'll finish these up tomorrow, and hopefully get some better pics.

Thanks tg, thanks Kinny! Yeah, I like that Olmec head comparison. I've actually been wanting to try carving an Olmec piece.

I forgot to mention earlier, this is the first time I've carved a vertical piece (hence the vertical thread title). All the hundreds of tikis before these were carved laying on the ground (the LOG, not ME!) I wasn't sure I could even pull these off when I was starting them, but I think I did okay.

Beautiful pair of sentries, Bill. I like this project a lot, the tikis make a very powerful statement.

Now to let time take over...let these guys weather a bit.

Cheers! to 4WDtiki and to the proud homeowners. G
