A wise man once said, "Every one you do is practice for the next". So, I made my second attempt at carving Mr. Ku.

That sounds like Benzart! Am I right?!

Killer, man! The last couple have been really jaw dropping!

Thanks for all the positive responses.

Watango - He is 32 inches tall. Glad you looked in.

5150 - I'm very happy with the headdress. It is very close to the way I envisioned it. The stain on the body is golden pecan.

Aloha - I could write several paragraphs on the flaws I'd like to correct but I'll be brief. The focus on my first Ku was to get the crouch correct. On this one, I was trying for a more traditional face. I feel I'm heading in the right direction. For #3, I'll make the head smaller in proportion and work on the hands.

Savage Daddy. I appreciate the kind words. Glad to see you back in the game. It's been too quiet on here lately.

Tikigodz - thanks for looking! Now I need to teach him how to grill burgers.

McTiki - thanks bro. We need to see a new one from you!

Will - I think I still need lots of practice to hang with you guys. Thanks for your encouragement.

hiltiki - I thought this carve was a bit weak and almost did not post it. Thanks again.

4WD - I'm just a bit embarrassed. I must admit I've been studying your Ku technique. Hope you will take it as a compliment.

Big T. Well, I saw that comment on someone else thread and don't recall who made it. It really struck a chord with me though so I just gave credit to a "wise man".
Thanks for you support.

Hope I didn't miss anyone.

You thought this one was a bit weak?! Are you kidding?? He's freakin awesome! I love all the color you're putting on too. Gonna have to try that. The headdress looks like it was a lot of work. He looks much larger than the 32" you said he was.

Ku #3 is 29" tall. Now it's on to a larger log.










Working the bugs out of another style.







Since I carved this guy anatomically correct and I have a 3 year old granddaughter, the grass skirt had to go.
