I have restored the photos from my last post. I think all of us have lost any pics we posted in the last few days.

pcj5150 & amate: thanks for the comps!

Making some progress on the new/old tiki. I started this one last year and have been working on it now that the moai is done.

Killer Ku! I was wondering what happened to this guy and I'm glad to see your still at it. I never realized how long it takes to carve one of those big logs.

Laojia, thanks so much!
Thanks amate, not sure it normally takes so much longer. It just takes me longer... haha.
Seeks, many thanks!

Well this guy is finally finished. Took a whole year to finish. Altho I did carve three other tikis in between. Any way, glad to have him done.

Very nice BigT, great carve and great finish too. The grain really pops out on this guy.

YOur lasted one is top notch.

I know on your next Moai you won't have the same nose.

Conga, thanks! Yes I left this one a little lighter to let the grain show through since he has so many different angles.
Nixxon, Lente, McTiki, thanks a bunch! Glad you like him.

Teakey, yep hopefully not! He had a lot more wood to remove to get his nose to stand out more. He really needed some more depth allow over. It was kinda hard for me to gauge given his size. He's another half as much wider than the one I just finished.
