Thats where most people struggle. The body is often more important because it sets the posture for the entire figure. The more you do the better (and easier) they get!

thanks guys...and yeah Tom, you're dead on with that assessment. The body thing is dicey, and I've had several pieces that the face & head were great, and the body sucked, so I ended up cuttin' their heads off & tossin' the bodies!

So anyway, back to the Kanaloa. I'm super stoked on this one. And now that I have things "roughed in" so-to-speak, I'm goin' after it with the chisels. I feel like this one, due to it's size & it's price once done, will probably end up at my house. And that's actually a good thing. Out of all the tikis I've made, the only "keepers" I have are the first, the fifth, and my 4th lono. Everything else is what I call a "loosie" (as opposed to an "in-ground") and are for sale. So I think that other than rolling the kanaloa out at the big bartenders guild tiki party on st pete beach in June, it's probably going to be hangin' out in the living room with the aforementioned.

Thanks brother.

One more before I head out.

Funny, now that the headdress is done the face looks very plain & needs some spiffing up!

Headdress looks great.
Ya, it shows up the face.
Those teeth, you know what to do!
Carve deeper.
Exacto time.
