This pic looks like there is a distinction between the heartwood and sapwood but it doesn't show up after it's stained. Is there a way to keep that coloring?


Yeah, don;t stain it.
Seriously, there's not as much a difference in person, the reddish is just below the bark. I could've sanded a couple more milimeters, and it would've been all white.
I know, come to the chop this weekend and you can carve a piece and try for tu-tone.

Billy, thanks, but I didn't feel like haulin' my crap up there. Next time, yes.

I'm not much of a carver, somehow I don't think I want to learn at a big event with 1,200 people looking over my shoulder

I'm scheduled to work this Saturday, but I'm hoping to get off so I can come up to the Chop.

Jen, the guy backed out on buying the Ku, so I give you dibs if you want it.

Otherwise, it's going on craigslist!

No, thank YOU, Jen! It couldn't be going to a nicer home.

Clarita and seeks, thanks!
tikigodz, funny, that's the exact same word that I used! The Ku is 51" tall.
skoot, thanks, and it was good to meet you and the missus, too! See you again, neighbor.

What's next, you ask? Why, THIS!

Right in line with Hank's suggestion to go bigger on the headress.
I think I was inspired by something I saw at the BB Ben yard sale Sunday, maybe a Bowana pendant.
It's just roughed out, but I'm liking the tiny body.

Also, I went back to check on the two vertical stump tikis from last month, and took the opportunity to pose with them, just for scale.


The bottom one has a healthy growth of mold, and some knid of oozing sap. I'll give it another month or two, then go do a cleanup.
