thank you TNTiki, The Ragin' Rarotongan (glad you lke your guys), and Polynesiac.

Polynesiac: i'm might be trying a bigger version of that Cannible tiki pretty soon, i post pictures if i do.

here is some other projects i tring to finish up. I'm also expereimenting with different stain colors and clear coats for the palm wood.

the first is for the guy that got me the palm wood. it is that tiki mug guy, this time he is stained, and has 1 coat of Varnish on him.



the next one is my stool with 4 coats of Shalack on him.



the last is a mask i carved yesterday, the design is the same as a mask i did last year when i first started carving, except this one actually has demension to it, and the teeth are a little different. he is just stained, and will receive Varnish as that seem much better for Palm wood and all the hairs it has.

here is some progress on the Cannibal tiki, basing him on the guy at the Harbor Hut (local resturant). It doesn't look like much has happened, but i have spent a day and a half on him 5-6 hours. carving the mouth took my a long time 3-4 hours. still in the rough stages. the guy is 43 inches tall and right around 13-15 inches in diameter







close up of the mouth to show that there is a gap carved out behind the little tikis head.



here is what the orginal looks like and hopefully mine will in the end

This is some cool stuff, Octane. Your efforts are certainly paying off by the looks of these pics. Keep it up!

thanks Sam Gambino, Tiki-Toa, and TNTiki, your kind words are very appreciated.

Tiki-toa: not sure what you mean, if you mean is it a project for someone or if someone has asked to buy it, then the answer is no, he is up for grabs.

TNTiki: thanks for the compliments on the details but, i'm not sure mine will turn out better then the orginal, but thank you.

here is another update to the Cannibal.

Yeah that is actually what I was inquiring was if he was for someone. And from what I have seen of your work I agree with TNTiki that you will make it superb in the end.

Damn! Every time I check out Owen's (Octane) posts I see more stuff I need to buy from him. Your carvings are just plain awsome! Great work, and you just keep getting better and better.

thanks Tiki-Toa, Aaron (ragin'), and theChikitiki, the support you add is what keeps the chisels a carvin


here is some updates on the Cannibal, 99% of the rough work is done, just have to split the back legs and split the feet in the front. I cleaned him up more then in this photo today.

That's a real shwangin' tiki, Octane. Thanks for all of the progress shots. Can't wait to see how it cleans up.

Cheers!

thanks Ben, and Aaron's Akua.

well here is the cannibal all stained up, probably the last pictures for a while as i'm going to varnish him and that will take a while, as varnish takes 24-48 hrs to dry between each coats and i want at least 5 coats on him.
