Got him sealed today.
I know he's not the best looking or most original,
but I had to chop a fresh piece to try out some finishing things I
learned here on TC. This Moai will be a first place prize at a holiday party that we throw every December.

Since the shellac/urethane apps went well on the Moai
I bought more cans and drenched the Flaming Ku.
No stain on the ku, he already had a rich tone.
The first 2 pics are more what he looks like in person.
(flash on cameras are tricky)

Kino, the Moai looks finished to me and an excellent job too!
The last one is cool too and has a Painful, angry grimace on his face and looking at the back side I can see why,,, His Hair is on FIRE. Hurry put it out before he goes bald!

Well, it's been way too long since I been here.
I finally managed to get some time and this is what I got.
I still have a little bit of fine tuning, then the finish.

The inspiration for this guy came from a skull I saw here at TC
quite a while ago. I dont remember who it was though.

Mahalo for da-kine words Scott.
He was pretty easy, but quenched my thirst.
Here he is all torched up.
I have labeled him ' The Tooth Fairy '
The spar is gonna have to wait a little due to weather
and free time.

Aloha everyone !
I havent posted anything new in a long time, but have been lurking for a few weeks because my carving season is here. I started brushing off the cobwebs of my tools a couple weeks ago.
Here's what I have so far.....

.
.
.
.

1st - these 2 are from the same log, sumthin simple just to get choppin,
just sanded, no finish yet



This is a fresh and very wet log. I scored a bunch and wanted to see
how bad it would crack if I carved it. Still waiting for it to dry for sanding


Started this one on a dry log using 'economy of cuts'. Not sure I'm liken him
so I put him aside for awhile.




This is a small slit drum I hollowed out last year
just to see the sound it would make. It lingered in the yard all year, so
I decided to decorate and finish it (with my new V tool)
I'm in the process of making some sticks for it



Just started this one today. I have a 4' tongue tiki that my wife loves, but
a bunch of carpenter bees made it their home. Thought I'd make her a new one.





My 7yr old daughter wanted to try her hand with a chisel,
its a portrait of me.

Kino, that slit drum looks Great! What kind of wood, and what did you use to hollow it out? That's gonna be gorgeous when you stain it.

Thanks 4wdtiki. The wood is african sumac. just something I came across last year. I have
few more pieces of it although they are on the smaller side.
This drum is only about 2' long. I hollowed it out with a chainsaw about 90 %.
Then tried to clean it up inside with a chisel.
The pic shows it lightly stained, I didnt want to go real dark, thought I would lose the details I chipped into to it.
This wood when peeled is a pine looking color and if left to dry more starts
to show 'red' flavors. And the grain of the logs twist.

It sounds cool , if only I could play it well.


Anyway, here are some progress pics of two I started last week.
They need some stain and whatnot (I havent decided completely yet)
otherwise, I'm calling them done.

Any ideas, suggestions, feedback are welcome.
Mahalo for looking.

amate, thanks for looking, and mahalo.

Ive been a little busy as of late, but did find some time to
finish some guys I started earlier
Here is an update ....




these next 2 I used the same stain, from the same can
the moai has a nice sweet golden brown color to it,
but the tongue dude came out with reddish overtones.
Does anyone know why this happens ?
