Tall Lono turning good with this dark coat. I'm also interesting for the characteristic of your tar recipe...
And come on the high of the totem pole...soon finished? The suspense is maintained with these photos truncated...Well done!

seeks,
Have or do you use an electric (handheld) planer on your work? i picked up on last week (Ryobi -$69.00) and it seems to work great on removing bark or shaping logs.
The drawknife works good on palm, but the planer is alot quicker on other stuff like salt cedar or cottonwood. Any pointers? Still beholding.
also interested in your tar mixture.

Basement Kahuna was kind enough to divulge this tar mix
2 parts mineral spirits, 1 part roofing tar and about 1/2 cup of japan dryer

laojia - thanks J. how is the old man carving going?

tikifreak - thanks Im a old grom.

TikiMango - thank you much sir.

drogoat - I was just eyeballing a planer. No I have never used one, but I would
use it for really squaring the log. It probably wouldn't work for me on my
logs as a de-barker. I use a chain saw then a 5" sander to de-bark.

AlohaStation - He smells mostly of the thinner. I don't or haven't sold any
tiki as of yet? so i have to put them somewhere. I just hope someone don't
steal him? I will secure him as best as i can.

surfin - Dam you right! next pic of tall lone will have the boards.

Hi Capt'n Seeky,

I think nothing can stop you. You're killing me and every little one who would know what a tiki is with your master works.
This character looks like he's alive ! I'm sure that 10 years later, when the wood will be older, with cracks and all, nobody would see the difference between your work and the work of the Ancients.
I don't know what your current job is but you got to stop it and be a full time sculptor NOW

Benjamin.

If Gman smilling, I always breath off when I see your pics... Benella is right when he wrote about the rain man: "This character looks like he's alive", and his quiet expression.... So cool!
When larger pictures?

Jérôme.

PS: the old man comes slowly but certainly... He's very old...
