It's mind blowing how skilled you are at carving.
Great work.

I think it would be a real Treat to watch you work for awhile, just to see this detail perfection machine in motion. I couldn't watch though for more than a few years, cause I'd get bored after that!

Well I think we Need these on This page too:


The Lono headdress is about the most complicated you will find I think but that also makes it open to the Most interpretation and personalization. It seems yours is no exception and I just have to say one more time; Incredible. Love the Duct tape idea, makes a Lot of sense.

Hey there Seeks, your stuff looks great. I spent some time today looking through your whole thread and appreciate all your progress pics to your final piece. It really helps see how people develop the piece and mark out the limbs, etc. Can't wait to see how that headdress turns out.

Any new progress on the PNW totem? Do you happen to have any websites like this one or good books that show good images of PNW style art and totems? I've been thinking of trying that style out on one of my swordfish bills like I did with the tiki heads on my thread. I've bought a couple books but just looking to try to find a resource for that style that is as helpful as TC.

thanks.

Seeks... that Lono is really turning out incredible!

I'll bet you've lost track of the time put into the detail work.

Resourceful idea on protecting that hard work. I can tell you think a lot of things through before you do them... reminds me of myself.

Your latest work is musuem quality... pieces to be cherished forever.

Best of luck as you continue on... love watching these guys evolve!

Benz - Thanks for filling up my gas tank! I was almost late for
work because i was working so hard on finishing up that headdress.

seagoat - Nice of you to check out the thread. I hope you can use something
there to make your carving experience work better for yourself.

The PNW Pole stays the same tell I'm done with Tall Boy. I really don't know
of any support groups similar to TC on the subject of Indian art.
I just goggle images of PNW Poles and go from there. Good luck on the NW art or
i like to say Pacifica Art that way i think is ok to use it here?

GMAN -

Lake - My Man thanks for the warm complement. I don't know about Museum quality.
If i was really thinking ahead i would have done the edge touch up last.
I really never intended Tall Boy to be taken this far he started out as
a chainsaw only quickie.

Clarita - Mahalo for dropping buy again. Love that surfing theme you have
been working on.

Man Seeks, this one has been a Hard battle from the start(of the headdress!) and I bet next time you carve a tiki, weather or not it is to be a Lono will not take too much debate in your mind. Has this changed your willingness to carve another one? Of course after this one I Know you have many ideas as to how to make the process simpler and faster..This one is by far the most intricate one I have ever seen. I'm not sure though and to ascertain that for sure I would need to study it Up Close for a good while, so I'll enclose my shipping address and even Pay the postage when you get it finished.

Love the duct tape work....be careful not to leave it on too long or it will leave an icky goo mess.

This bugga is going to be the shitz! I can't wait to see him standing proudly at the bog. Any thoughts on finishes yet?

You rule,

G$
