Boy oh boy...I always love the BK stuff. The finish is always perfect, no matter what
you are doing. Top shelf.

Yes, the moai is also very beautiful. I like his big cheekbones and the small mouth. The color is also great. Do you have a picture from the back?

Hey BK just got the cannible tiki I ordered from you in today's mail. It's so great when dreams come true. It's so well done and such a scary tiki, maybe my nightmares came true. Anyway I've got it hidden away until Christmas for Dan, he's a lucky guy. You can post photos of it here, he never touches the computer, I'm really danlovestikis. Have a great night and happy carving, Wendy

Turn off the bright fluorescent lights, put a drink in your hand, and it would look like you are setting at a really terrific looking old school tiki bar, with all your creations. It even has the authentic RevBambooBen white ceiling.

New Tongaroa born today! He's 4 feet tall and about 14 inches in diameter. One of my favorite Cook Island images. I may bring him to Coontiki just for some scenery! I'm loaded to the hilt with comissions right now, so Tonga was sort of my "spare time" carve for a while. Aloha!



hey BK,

trawling through your thread and remembered this one... i vaguely recall you posting step-by-steps with the process of shaping the tang's body - but couldn't find them.

maybe it was in the great
"Tiki Carving Methodology" thread, but sadly a lot of those initial posts have their pics missing.

Any chance of you re-posting those progress pics if you still have em?

Cheers.
Harro.
PS Love the new stuff too.

Harro, let me see if I can find them. That Tangaroa is in Knoxville now with TNT. Gecko posted a great step-by-step on carving a Tangaroa, too, way back in 2001 or so. I may have that somewhere as well.

BK - (if i may ask) what is the stain on the 3-foot 1/2 -round hardwood Marquesan?
I just grabbed a few test cans at Home Depot but im not happy with them.

That stain is an old trade secret given to me by an architectual salvage guy who restores old nautical stuff a long time ago...2 parts mineral spirits, 1 part (get this) STANDARD roofing tar, and about 1/2 cup of Japan Dryer. Takes about two days to dry nice. The results on more porous woods, palm especially, are incredible. But you need to give it about two coats of a good matte or satin finish over like Deft or Grumbacher (stay away from that shiny polyurethane slop; number one finish mistake tiki carvers make.)

Right on BK! I will have to try that crazy BK Mix soon.
I already put minwax #225 on this morning.
Many mahalos

Hey BK where you been? Have you tried that concoction on pine ever? Does it come out splotchy like regular stain does? Look forward to your next post.

Aloha, Dan...that Tongaroa was, in fact white pine. Turned out good. The Japan Dryer is the non-make-a-mess ingredient. You can find it at Home Depot. It was the way they used to dry those hundred-layer Japanese lacquers in the high eastern humidity.
