Thanks guys i really appreciate the complements.
It means allot to me.

People at work don't get it they think i should be
carving a bear?

benella - I spent about 5 days just looking back and
forth on the feet pic's Thanks

Paipo - Thanks i really appreciate your honesty about
the limbs and body. I see it big time.

"Something tells me you must've been making other cool
stuff before you channeled your energy into these guys?"

You are not the first to suggest or hint that I'm
hiding some previous talent. The progress you see
in the picture you posted that's it. That's all the
art work or carvings i have done in the last 24
years.

hewey - thanks dude took me crazy amount of time.
haikai - thanks much.
harro - almost perfection I see allot of imperfection
gman - I'm scared to death to stain him! I will PM you will talk
when he is dry.
tikifreak - thanks much Id love to parade him at your
pad.
congatiki - thanks for the stunner.
MooneyTiki - thanks for the sacret resting place in the hills of Hawaii.
Robin - Ya the staring i could have had a college degree
by now with all the staring i did.
Babalu - thanks for the complement.
AlohaStation - you the man thanks
tok-tok - I took my time and had a great piece of wood
to work with and luck.
FeddieBallsomic - Thanks the name took awhile to hit me
but it works.

Seek, man... its all been said already... but that is friggen tight.

Everything is precise and cut just right. I can tell you are a perfectionist.

Don't stress about the stain. Go with what your gut tells you. I know you have a ton of work invested in this, but you learned on your last one.
Stain this sucker up!

I say go for a Marquesan next too... you've got Kona Style Hawaiian down to a science.

Wow...absolutely amazing. Your first pieces look like a lot of first tikis I've seen here, but you seem to have squeezed about 3 years worth of improvement into the next 3. How cool for you that you've found your calling (and us, cause we get to watch), and that you decided to carve tikis and not bears! So what are the next 3 gonna look like?!

Paipo - The next one is going to be a Lono. Waffle Head was
supposed to be a lono, but i made the body to large and ran
out of room up top.

As far as the ones after that not sure? My tikis are always
changing as i move along in them. As far as a Marquesan someday
i hope to give it a try. I'm really stuck on the Hawaiians right now.

My uncle was raving about NZ he said it was prettier than the
Pacific North West on a sunny day.

Hey Seek, I see you've put your robotic Tiki carving skills to work on Waffle Head. Symmetry is a very difficult thing, and you have done a great job with it. I agree with the others that it could be from the Bishop Museum.



Leggo my Eggo!

surfintiki - Good to hear from you. Thanks, I'm scared to death
of the stain process after Thin Man. Not sure on the stain
or top coat yet. Might go safe with something i have done or the
#225.
