here are a few things i finished over the weekend.

the first is a Moai guy, he is made out of palm wood. he was kind of a spur of the moment thing, i wanted to test how well rthis new palm wood i got the other day, and i had this little peice.





i due have a couple of questions though about Palm wood, as i really haven't carved it much at all. what due you use to sand it? i used just standard sand paper but it clogged up very fast.
does it take stain well, or is there any secrets to staining palm?

this next project is a pannel that will go on the front on my tiki cabinet i'm currently in the midst of finishing. its only been a year so far. i have had the thing drawn out for a little while but i haven't gotten around to it.

here are a few projects that i'm working on right now.

the first is a update for TNTiki on a Marquasen guy he asked me to due. made out of palm wood, right around a foot tall. second day i have worked on him, still needs some clean up, and little things before i can start to sand him.








this next one is a rarotongan guy, for myself, or ebay depending on the old bank account balance. he to is made out of palm wood and is right at 22-23 inches tall (6 inch diameter). he still needs to have his head squared off and more sanding before i can stain him up.

thanks for posting the pics Gecko, looks like it turned out pretty well.

i like the matting you put on the back bottom. i thought about carving it up for you, or putting a pecie of tapa down there but that matting looks great.

hopefully the poplar didn't cause to much trouble with the staining. it looks like it turned out a good color and really did make that Maori style carving on the bottom of the stage back to show up.

the mugs look great, i can't wait and i'm sure other can't as well until the mugs come out for sale.

hope you enjoy the stage, and it works out for you.
