Could you put some Mustard or Catsup next to him? I really can't tell how dark he was without a reference. I really don't think dark was bad on him. I got used to seeing those little black gods from Hawaii as a kid, so I'm kinda partial to the dark stuff. Like A-1.

I'm with Aloha, I hate sanding. You must have incredible patience, I thought it looked great before.

benella - Mahalo i will need it.

Uncle Laffo - I'M gun shy on the dark stain right now.
The A-1 was funny

JonnyP - I really had no choice it was a bad A-1 mess.


Thin Man suffered a ankle fracture i might have to put
a pin in. All the weight is up top and the
little angle cracked. I have a new guy going also I will
call him Chubby Boy for now.

Hi Seek, and a happy new one.

I liked the stain-job you did.

This did not look too bad to me. I am wondering what you expected? I liked the way it turned out, too bad that you broke the ankle of the thin man after all. It is sad to see. Hope you manage it.

A Couple Dowels and some good glue and he will be BETTER than New, as he will have that extra ankle support not originally included. It's all part of carving
repairing.
Beautiful tiki anyway and the Fat Boy is not looking bad either!
Excellent works.

Looks like the Thin Tiki will need some rest and recuperation, I'll
carve him some crutches if you send him to Wisconsin.

tok-tok - The picture don't show the stain well. Its was
nasty wet and clumpy. Hopefully i will show you what I'm looking
for on the stain when I'm done.

GMAN - The damage ankle seems to be holding well.
I'm thinking of going with a small dowel from behind just for
a little insurance.

surfintiki - right on!

Benz - Its looking like i did the same thing on the Fat Boy with
the ankle being the week point.

congatiki - Thin Man is getting there its just slow going.

Well, you might try getting some weight off the head and upper bode before you take the ankles down. They can Always be a weak point. I have busted More than a few myself too!
Still Lookin' Good.

Its been a steep learning carve for me this last month.
Benz just gave me a heads up on last post.

I dropped fat boy and that's all it took CRACK!
I say he's around 300 lbs he is still fairly wet.
(silly me i need to be more careful)

I glued him with Elmer's Nano glue and plan on using
5/8 or 3/4 " oak dowels. I also bought some aluminum rod
but will probably not use them. I still have meat to remove
and I'm scared of sanding into them?

Benz or Anybody with experience what type of glue and types of pins
have you used? with what effects or results. Info for now and the
future. He is 6' around 300 lbs right
now.

Mohalo

THAT my friend, is one of the finest pieces I've seen on TC in a loooong time! IMO.

I feel your pain with the cracking ankles/legs. My skinny little ankles feel like they're going to crack under the pressure of my excessively large head all the time


Keep up the awesome work.

Howland - Thanks for the complement.

Thin Man is close to being done Pictures soon.

My new guy is coming along OK. His seems to stronger than
ever. He has some tipsy angle to him but i think
it will give him character.

Well done Kook! Now, lay him down so as to relieve the sheer stress on the uncarved to carved weight disparity, and finish the bulk removal while being careful not to turn him in angst.

Nice form so far.
