thank you everyone for the compliments on the stage, Gecko did a great job with his mugs and the stain job.

TNTiki here is an update on your Marquesan guy. he came out pretty close to the picture you sent me, some minor difference but as close as i could get him.

Foamy: thank you for the kind words

here is a guy i have been working on since yesterday. kind of expereimenting with the new wood. this guy will become a stool or seat for myself. My old seat while carving was a 5 gallon buckett with a lid but i set one of my palm tikis down on it and broke the lid.

this guy is marquesan in design and when i'm finished will have a padded (bark clothe i think)top for a comfortable seat. oh he is 22 inches tall.

I like the look of that stool Octane, really looking forward to the finished piece. What kind of wood are you using for it?

Really excellent stuff, Octane. I'm gonna keep on eye on this string for inspiration. I checked out your tools in the "Tools Carvers Use" string. I find it amazing that you're turning these out with no power tools! The detail is fantastic!

Yeah, that detail is MAD for a mexican fan palm. I use a dremel for detial because I always got so frustrated with the fibers sticking out.

These are awesome. I can't wait to see the 4 foot+ tikis you're gonna do!

Yeah! eat your hearts out too. I am the proud parent to "not so big puka" and "mini rarotongan". The pictures do not do justice to the pure genius of Owen's carvings. He is already awsome, and his works just keep getting better. Keep up the excellent work. I will definitely be in line again for more.
