Sweet is an understatement, Octane! That stain really brings it all out. I'm gonna have to talk to you & get some of that stain/varnish expertise soon. Can ya maybe put a fan in front of it to speed the drying so we can see it sooner??!!!

thanks everyone for the great compliments.

Aaron's Akua: any time you have a question letter rip. I'm not exactly an expert on either staining or varnishing but if i can help i will.

tiki5-0: you can do carve him, go for it try it out see how it looks, never hurts to try, this is my second shot at this guy, the first was Ok but you have to just keep trying and learning/experimenting ways to make him better.

Ben: i love the cannibal tikis, this guy in particular, because of what you just said , its like a picture right before the guy takes that fatal bite. I'm hopeing to due all 3 in the seires but in a smaller size, 2ft range. but that might have to wait tell next summer

Owen, you skills are extraordinary! You never seize to amaze me with your new carvings. I am trying to save some $ for Hukilau, and you are making it very difficult. As soon as Hukilau is over, I will contact you for a larger Rarotongan, or perhaps the Cannibal. Talk to ya soon.

Aaron

Nicely finished, as well. It takes a lot of sanding, and patience to get it to look that good.

O.K., Octane…I do have a few questions if you don’t mind. They’re already on my post:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=10587&forum=7&9
They’re right below the photos of my unfinished tiki & have to do with shell inlay & 2-tone staining, etc. – both of which I see you’ve done here with great results. Check it out & give me a reply if you find the time. Thanks!

thank you Mr. dale, Aaron (ragin'), Raffertiki, Polynesiac.

Raffertiki: you are right i spent around 5-6 hours worth of sanding on the guy. Palm is not the easiest wood to sand.

Polynesiac: no shows planned, i'm kind of a shy guy not sure i could handle a show, but i will show my work here, TC is my show i guess.

Aaron (ragin'): you and your family stay safe from this new huricane. i'm sorry to tell you but this cannibal isn't on the market anymore.

well here is some new stuff, tiki christmas tree ordaments, i have been asked by 3-4 people for tree ordiments, so here is a sample of a few i did 2 today one yesterday in between coats of varnish and other clear coats on various projects.

Very nice stuff Octane. I like the cannibal and the ornaments. When the holidays are over, you can wear them as a necklace. I found a picture of the big tiki from the Harbor Hut before it got damaged. I'll post it soon.

Nice! How do you hold those to carve them? I traded my micro carving tools in for big ones after stabbing myself in the quad... went in about 1/4 inch... I like carving the big stuff... the small is neat but I can't get the control...
