Thanks Keylo. Looking forward to seeing more on your thread.

Ben- Glad you liked the pigtails. They were fun and I want to do more similar to that. Good to see you back in the neighborhood!

Cargoship - It's amazing how much how much I have been influenced by and learned from looking at all the great art posted here. Apprieciate the compliment.

I finished another Ku. This one is 19 inches.

Will, Kelo, Nixxon - That base had several knots running through it. I was debating whether to cut it off or not but tried covering it with dark walnut stain. The stain worked so well I forgot about the knots when I started to carve it several weeks later. Due to the knots, the design changed a couple of times (you may notice the back side is different) but the salvage job is acceptable.

Watango, appreciate the compliments...I like the finish you put on yours.

C. Chimp - I usually have several carvings in process at the same time so it's hard to keep track of how long each one takes. I would estimate somewhere between 10 and 20 hours.

Here's a couple more in process...

Hey Amate...good work my friend. The body on that feller on the bench looks incredible,
can't wait to see him standing up. You're amassing a pretty impressive bunch of
dudes.

Good eye Big T....and thanks.

Ben - I am VERY flattered by you kind comments. Thank you so much. That little Kon Tiki still stands on my shelf. I still like him after all this time.

Conga - I may have to add a wing on to the spirit house to get more room! I think I may try my hand at painting on the reclining one. It will be a good project to keep my out of the weather over the winter. I'll get him up on his feet asap.

Here is a 16 inch marq. I have taken the lesson learned from this and moved on to the next.

Very nice work amate!

I especially like the Ku!
The base is a great idea to add support to the tiki and adds a great design element with the pattern you carved into it
Excellent braids and I like the addition of color to the base!

A great start on the full body piece on the bench! Looking good!
