Jeeez, it's been so long it took me a minute to find my thread!!! I'm done with my basement (well enough that I can start carving again), so I'm back in the game!! Nothing special but started sanding again and waiting for some new shells I ordered for the eyes.

Dude! He is so gnarly! I can't wait to come up and see him again in April. This guy is gonna look so great when you get him done. You've done such a great job on him. The ebony stain is going to look so killer with the oil treatment. I can't wait to see him with hair!

Aloha Craig! Can't wait to see the progress on the eyes. I was wondering if you had the hair worked out? A lot of Tikis with hair seem to turn out looking like a doll and a little pluggie. I have a nice carving, but the hair is lacking. The carver used horse hair and had the holes spaced far apart.



I wanted to restore some dignity to this Tiki and fix the hair. What to do?? I noticed the local Savers store would put out alot of wigs during the Halloween season and started to check out their stash. After going through the pile, I noticed some real wigs for cheap! Wigs that must have cost hundreds were only a few dollars. You might ask the sales help if they have wigs in the back if you don't find any.



From this...



To this....



You know what they say...another persons loss...is another Tikis Hair


Aloha, Freddie

Thanks G, can't wait for April!!! Freddie, thank you too!! I am curious to see how the hair turns out also. I already bought some human hair from a salon and hair glue (hoping that works)? As you can see from the pics I am going to attempt the plug approach like the guy you have but I have mine closer together (hopefully) but if not I'll just drill some more. I'm going for the look somebody posted a couple pages back from an original, kinda nappy???

He's coming back out...all that redo is going to be worth it. What's the new plan for the finish?
