Thanks guys .... I think I'm going to tackle that ten footer that split in two ... after cleaning them up, they are now two seven footers! They were cracked and split in a few places! I'm going to do one of them with faces of the four Hawaiian gods, Kane, Lono, Ku and Kanaloa .... And, Surf ... he is hooked, now if I can just teach him how to scrape the bark off some logs then he would earn his keep!

Have a Great Day!

That came out great Capt, excellent work on the multicolor stain job too. I know how that can be trying to keep the colors from running into places where you don't want them. Excited to see whats next!



I agree! I really the contrast of color

Thanks guys for the compliments ... I hit the stains with a tiny brush so it doesn't run so much ... it still tries to bleed sometimes, but the more I do the better I get ...

Finished up another quick one. A two and half footer with the Florida teeth and just burned and poly'd .. no stain on this one .... I'll post the finished tiki tomorrow, it got too dark out there for a final picture!

Thanks for stopping ..... I need to drop the chisels for a week or so and finish writing a novel ... the natives are getting impatient waiting to see how the story ends!! I'll be back!!!

Have a Great Day!

Finished up this wall hanging of Kane and Kanaloa, all but the poly coat, (even tried my hand at adding a little hibiscus at the top!). The other half of the set will be Lono and Ku ...

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Hi McTiki ..... the Kanaloa/Kane took around ten hours of chop time, more or less .... I finished up the other half of the set, Lono and Ku, which took about the same amount of time. They are stained and ready for poly. I'm going to mount them on some bamboo pieces so they stand out from the wall. For now, here is where they stand:

Thanks Hang10 ..... mounted the bamboo brackets so they will stand out from the wall and put a coat of poly on them so they are finished. Now on to the other half of this log (this is that long sucker that was in the Jeep ... it was split in half)....

Well those last two wall tikis sold before the poly was dry! SO I started the next wall tiki ... this is a 5 and half foot triple Tangaroa. Left and right profiles for the top and bottom and a face front tang for the middle. Here's a couple progress shots:
