Ditto what Conga and Hewey said. If you keep this up you're gonna be he grand master Some Day. Practice, practice, practice, you know what they say Practice makes perfect tikis, so Don't let up. Just keep making these cool tikis. I love the teeth and the tongue and the full body is gonna be great!.

Hello all. thanks for the compliments always appreciated.
hey conga i use the hook knife usually to cut an outline in the wood. i dont know you you guys can just carve a whole thing with just the hook blade. need to figure that out yet.

thanks hewey. means alot.

benz man thank you. yes the practice is helping quite a bit. on those last 2 tikis i learned ALOT. before i couldent get the rounding down but now i think that i actually know what i am doing.

babalu, surf-n-turf, greentikipat- thank you. it really feels good to have people comment on something that you have created and put real thought into. i also like the toung grabber.
thanks everyone.

Hey Duddy, the Tongue guy is pretty cool.

Could this be the Polynesian God for "Holding Your Tongue Before You Speak"?

hey tikidav, thanks alot. i really like the tounge grabber as well. that is pretty cool what you thought of there. maybe he could be a little symbol for that.
great ideas.

Hey if anyone didnt notice from the pictures of the big guy i messed up pretty big. silly mistake but funny. if you pay attention to it you see that his knees kinda "morph" into his belly. i didnt think that through all the way. i had 2 ideas going at once and they kinda collided. well you learn every creation. next time i will think it through a little more. and hey maybe it can be "unique" lol.
thanks

Duddy: Try putting on the walnut stain and wiping it off almost immediately. You'll see the grain start to come out. If you want it darker, stain it again and wipe the stain off again. If you want it super dark, leave it on until it dries, wipe it down again, and keep staining it until it's dark as you want it. I'll send you that picture of what that wood looks like with the different types of stain that got deleted from TC a while back.
Tiki 18! Man, you're really going. They're looking good too. Keep it up.

Buzzy Out!
