First off I have to say this is Jeromes fault.
He made me do it.
I have no other excuse.
We have a PNG, Tongue & a Tang.
And remember,
these bros are lono, ya know.
Body work is done.
Now off to paint.

If I take your meaning right, I would say that Jerome has that effect on many of us. Very cool the way you incorporated them into the larger piece.

Will, this one is taking a while but I think it will be well worth the wait! The headdress is awesome and I like the way you placed the mirror so we could get a sneak peek at the feet again

Well, this didn't take long.
Now all that's left is to stand him up.







This could be my next project.
A 30 tall Lono pepper grinder.
There is nothing better than a useful Tiki.
Everyone can use a 30 in Lono pepper grinder.
Right ?

That big piece is spectacular!! What Will did not mention is that he painted the tiki to protect it from the harsh South Florida weather. The paint sealed it and he then he gave it a really cool petina. Waiting to see this guy standing up!

That lono is on its way. We used the same principles as creating a grinder on the lathe, but Will wanted to use the free form of the log. It gives the Lono a much looser feel than the stiff, regulated form of my grinders. More work involved getting the 2 pieces to fit and slide together. He made it work on the Tang and he has a great start to the Lono. Each one is a learning experience!

BITCHIN' Will! Gnarly toes

Is there a significance to the squares on the knees or purely decorative?

Ya Mike,
The knee squares are suede patches that match
the leisure jacket I gave him for Easter.
I also saw them show up on some of the Mai-Kai
castings I did.

Outstanding! Those look amazing sir. I think though that you may want to make the next a bit taller
