JohnnP, GMAN, conga, laojia, big daddy, Lake, benella,
tikifreak, Grampa-RuHa, cheeky, Babalu, Jungle Trader,
and Benz. Mahalo for all the support like i said it really helps most people think i sould be carving bears?

Yes! a labor of love is the only way i could spend this much
time working on a single figure.

Yes cheeky it was fairly wet when i started tall boy will crack
some more.

Have you seen those shipping cost lately Benz! they have almost doubled!

Wow, jaw dropping good man! Yeah I don't even wanna know what that thing would cost to ship. I'm sure it's worth it though! It would sure have a place of honor in my house!!

Oh - question: the calves. Are they rounded out like that to strengthen the lower legs or is that traditionally part of the design? Thanks!

The BigT - Mahalo. The oversized calf's are part of the design.
Just a overexaggeration. I would like to do this with the arms and
body but my logs are not thick enough or I would end up with
a very short and small body.

Tall Boy was intended to be a chain saw only carve. The eye area
front & back shows a lack of extended thought.
I found out he would fit in the van, so i brought him home.
I just couldn't stop chipping on him.

Seeks, that is absolutely PHENOMENAL!!!!!
I just got an 8 foot log moved to my house & planning another lono, but you have definitely set the bar higher than I can hope to see. Hope you don't mind if I reference this carve for some inspiration.
Wow, I can not get over how beautifully fierce he is.
You are the MAN.

Queen K, tikitomas, buzzard, Benz, Clarita, tikisbytyler and seagoat
thanks for the kind words.

tikisbytyler - reference all you like that how i do it.

Yes, the finish again my biggest fear!

Not tiki but local indigenous art created around the same time as the Polinesians.

Yeah, that's cool. Looks like a back breaker to be working on the floor, tho.
