Well, it's About time, good thing I wasn't holding my breath waiting for these pictures! Ha ha. It IS a Nice tiki too, well worth the wait. Don't understand why it didn't go at Huki but I'm sure it won't last long.
What else you have hiding over there? I bet you have a ton of stuff you've been working on and just haven't shot and posted. . . . Well? What are you waiting for?

I think you hit it, Ben... I think Pats got more aces up his sleeve, than Doc Holiday..

Really nice work Pat...somehow I missed the completion of your fisherman's god. Easy enough to do with all the good stuff popping up lately. I love the Marquesan/Rarotongan mashup of techniques you've used on him and I have previously noted my preference for these guys to be well equipped - they seem kind of sad in the no package post-missionary style, seeing they're all about abundance and fertility. Definitely one of my favourite wood carvings this year!
The new guy also rocks - sweet lines and a traditional vibe.

Yo GreenPat,

Nice stuff man. Gman Likee! I think you have the gene...... I didn't know you were lookin' for me? I'm around - sometimes Work is gonna have me tied up for a week or two, but let's get together one weekend in August and maybe you, MBL, and myself can get a session going. I could use a push anyway......

If I get my g8tr tags filled early, I'll be off of work with nothing to do around Labor Day?

-G

wow! I just love it Pat! Love the smooth look he's got, it doesn't look like palm at all! The finish is amazing, great use of burning.

Nice stuff Pat...I dig him a lot. He looks super from the full 360...if that makes
any sense. That "pear" look to the body reminds me of a cool carving outside the Disney
TikiRoom that I have pondered many times but not attempted. Inspiring work in such a short
time.

aloha! thanks a lot everyone!!
Savage Daddy, Mieko, Aloha Station- the finish look is just the grinder. i don't change the disc until i must. the more worn it becomes, the more it burns as it goes.
Tikifreak1-Benella, Mctiki- thanks guys! as for the backyard, Mctiki- he was a commision, so he was gone that day. i do love the classic Marq style, so i think i'll have to make one similar for my abode.
Congatiki, -thank you. doing the majority of the shaping and linework with the grinder really speeds things up. like the one before, i only used chisels and gouges to remove large areas of wood. i like this aproach quite a bit. not "all hand carved", but it makes the work time/price ratio a fair one.
GMAN- a weekend in august sounds good here. i'm a single dad, so i'll probably need to include my 5yr old daughter, but she loves tikis and carving, so shouldn't be a problem for a couple hrs anyway. i can always use a push, too.

mahalo all!

well folks, here's my first go at stone. like many other mediums, i wish i had started long ago when the urge first came up. but oh well, plenty of time still! love at first grind. with the wood carving and tattooing skills already in place, this seems to be a natural progression. here's some progress.
these first two are the sketch that i drew last week some time.


and here's after about four hours with the dremmel and cylindrical diamond tip. not shure what dia., but you get the scale in the last shot.





there we are! finishing the shaping tonight, probably won't get to the polishing until later this weekend. i'll post more later. to all you stone carvers, MAHALO! i probably wouldn't have attempted this without your insperation.
