Benella, I have some ideas but I have to do some more research first.

Thanks for checking him out FreddieBalls! You have that song stuck in my head now & I don't know if that's a good thing! I checked out your thread too, very cool stuff!!!

G, Yeah I found a place that sells it so I'm going to pick it up this weekend. I'm still on 60 grit because the tight spots are killing me. This might be a stupid question but how do I know when to switch grits????

when it hurts

Oh, you can switch when there are no remaining scratches deeper/larger than the ones you are maiing with that particular grit paper. Keep going......

TF...this is over the top crazy for your first tiki!!

Love, love it! The progress pictures you have posted, and the comments on this guy will be an outstanding reference for future carvers here on TC. Before I went back and read all the posts with care, I quickly scrolled down from first page to last page. It was like zipping through one of those picture books watching this cool tiki quickly, and magically emerge from a log...

Hey, that's good idea?, someone should make one of those little "zip through" picture books of a tiki being carved.

Aces high TF!

Thanks for looking!

Does he seem dry yet? Is the smell still very strong? Maybe another stain coat soon?

Can't wait to see him darker and oiled.....

Yeah, it seems pretty dry and the smell is not strong at all. I was planning on doing another coat tomorrow but I was gonna ask you first. And if I do stain tomorrow, how long do I wait to apply the WATCO???

Craig,

If you stain again tomorrow, give it about the same amount of time to dry before you apply the oil. You'll know if it is ready by touching and smelling it.
