This weekend's creation. I really like the texture of the bark so I tried to leave as much as I could.





I really like that! It's both rustic and primitive looking. Your style seems to be evolving a little over the last few pieces I see. You've definitely cranked it up a notch!

thanks guys. I appreciate the props.

So here's the "evil twin". Planning on finishing him up today & hopefully the big 'un will be finished by tomorrow.



I've been asked to put some tikis in an art show this weekend & I'm not working this week, so I'm trying to bust some stuff out.

Good luck! I like them both but there is something about the stained one that really strikes a chord

I actually don't know what kind of palm it is. I found some at the dump and there it is!

I really like it too though. I've only found it once or twice.

finally done!!!!

I spent a couple hours sanding it with some 180 and slapped on a couple coats of "golden pecan" and he's off to his new home in a few days.

Looks like I'm going to be in an art show Sunday on Harbour Island, so this one is going with me!

That full body Ku turned out great. I have to admire that you took it down to 180 grit. I'm not that patient. I'm sure it will look different on hardwood but I'm going to give the Golden Pecan a trial in the near future. A good look and an all aroung great effort.

PJC that looks FANTASTIC! Very clean, very smooth, and great color. I'm sure it will be a big hit at the show!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the props.

And Mc, I have no choice, the tiki money is the only cash flow I have at the moment so it's gotta go!

I cut some more of that exact same wood, and have 4 that are over 9 ft, so I'm going to take on some BIG ones here soon!

Started a 7 1/2 footer!

Was up at 8am drawing it out...



that took about about an hour, I took an hour break, and then stopped at this point at 11am to go get some lunch...
