Octane you keep surprising me with the stuff you are making, and as such a young guy, I really look forward to watching you grow as a carver man.

Love the ornaments, Octane. Nothing like a Tiki Christmas. Thanks again for following up on the stain & finish questions - your info was well thought out & super helpful.

thanks bongofury, Lake Sufer, tiki-toa,Aaron's Akua, tiki 5-0, TNTiki, and Congolio.

well here is the cannibal all finished up witha ll the coats of varnish i'm going to put on him. i think there is at least 4 coats could be 5 i don't know i lost count. I will say i'm not going to use varnish again, i'm just not impressed, i think i will stick with the polyurathane. sorry for the pictures they aren't the greatest.

WEll i got out of school for christmas break and had to start carving again, so these past 2 days i have been working on this tiki.

It face is a mask i did at the end of the summer, the rest od the tiki is in the GECKO Crazy Al style.

It still needs some cleaning up and a few more details i still have to figure out like the feet, the eyes and a few others.

he is about 6-7 inches in diameter and a little over 2 feet.

I think the main difference between varnish & poly coating is that varnish can be colored (by adding diluted stain or very dilute paint) & that it takes on a patina as it ages. I think you can get colored poly coat, but it's not supposed to change with age (yellowing is a bad thing).

thank you Ben, Aaron's Akua, and lake surfer on the compliments on the latest tiki. he may well be the best one so far, i know i like him alot, glad to see others do as well.

Freddiefreelance, thanks for the comments on the Varnish and the Poly. I still think i'm going to use Poly from now on.

well here is the guy with all the carving parts done and some initial sanding. not sure if i'm going to stain him or leave him the mulitple colors he is.
