Finally put the finish on this marq........





Close up showing the grain and this cool knot in the body. There was some reason why I wasn't able to line it up so the knot would form the belly button but I can't remember now...



A little belated: Tikis of 2014!

That's some absolutely beautiful work, Big T. The warm wood tones especially are great.

Thanks all.

ProfG: those golden tones are achieved with wash coat or two of shellac, which is one of my favorite finishes.

Will - sadly some of the army is being discharged to other places soon.

Amate - you nursing those hands back to good health?? Need to see some new stuff from you!

Finally finished the Big Tiki (well the largest one I've done). He's 5' 5" tall. I took these pics yesterday when it was overcast (still is) and the color in the pics didn't really come out right in contrast to my white gravel driveway. Anyhow, the color is closer to the deep brown shown in the 2nd pic.









Thanks all!





Love this guy! Where did he wind up?

Fine work on this one. It has so much character. Sweet little base you gave him. Love it.

That's the one i told you i didn't like the headress, such as there is one. I probably should have cut it off flat. The pics show it a bit more orange flavored than it really is. It's finished in my secret coloring weapon: Brown Show polish.
