Aloha

some days are gone since the last lines and photos

thanks Marcus,Ben, Benzart and Seeksurf for your replys - your work rocks

Traderbob, it's birch / Birke with a nice color after the stain with "brou de noix"
please don't ask me the german or english word for it - it is the green part of nuts who will
be cooked in water i think and after you can take this liquid for stain Tikis or tables, chairs etc. a bio Tiki staining system

The WEDDING AKU is finished and we will stain it this week end
here some pics







good night
Akuae

Bonjour Akuae,

great moai, what a cool idea for a wedding present !
Keep a good eye on him, there's a custom in Germany where the wedding couple has to saw a log after the ceremony. They may have heard about that in Alsace, too.

Cheers,

Bobo

Excellent stain. You could not have planned the grain any better. The grain on the forehead looks like he's concentrating in deep thought and the grain on the nose looks like Maori warrior art. Great job guys!

WOW,

I'm with Tikilizard: the grain is absolutely perfect.
What kind of wood is it? And what stain did you put on ? Seems like Teak or "merisier"...

Benjamin.

Hey,

yes Bobo i knew this Wedding Custom in Germany but WEDDING AKU will survive the wedding is in Switzerland near the Matterhorn


thank's for your compliments TIKILIZARD
we're very happy with the stain and the finish
it's not easy to let the Wedding Aku in Switzerland sniff, sniff

Salut Ben,
merci - the wood is Alsace sapin / stocking for 10 years in the backyard of the grandma from Vinz thanks grandma !!!
the first stain is "Broux the noix" you find these stains in Castorama or Leroy Merlin
and after we put one Chene claire stain on it - i don't have the english word
( sorry it's late and i will go to bed now )

see you soon for more pics and some new projects

Salut Akuae,

Very cool black and white pix and super nice tikis.

"Chene" is oak in english and "sapin" is spruce wood

I already wrote it but the color of the moai is really beautiful.

Benjamin.
