He looks very cool, bro' !
I love the way you decided to carve the feet.
Your work is always so neat... it gives me a terrible urge to carve !

Benjamin.

TIKIPORN! You've got it goin' on!
Everything is PERFECT looking, and the wood looks really good, especially up into the headdress, nice coloration. Are ya gonna go Tung oil again?

You getting any work done on that Lono? I want to see an update. That way I can get discouraged and not go outside and work on my tikis. It's in the upper nineties down here. So do a brother a favor and keep me inside.

Mooney - thanks bro, all the support keep me going.
That mask of your was simply beautiful work.

Having a good time working out this headdress. So much surface area
in the headdress, time consuming.

This piece is outstanding !
The headress is simply perfect: neat smooth and everything... how did you do ? Chainsaw, sand machine, chisels ?

That's top shelf bro', that's top shelf.

seeksurf,

I've been watching your stuff for some time now and it has always been some kind of "modern textbook hawaiian" reference for me, thanks! The size, the smoothness, the details and the way you finish them, I am sure the lono won't be an exception, looking forward to see the final photos !

You posted the first progress photo here 2 weeks ago where the wood looked really fresh (wet), did it only take that long to dry naturally for this size of log ?

Greetings from Munich,

Bobo

benella - thanks, same old technique chainsaw chisels sand like crazy.

tikifreak - WOW is just fine.

Bobo - thanks glad you like.he is still wet i haven't carved anything
yet that was dry. I put a wet towel over him each night to keep him
wet. I keep a towel over the front hoping he will crack more
in the back?
