Welcome to TC MutantTiki, and thanks for looking and the comps. Im' about 4 weks behind now, plus I have to carve a lot for HukiLau in Sept.
In this post you should see everything I have carved since I started back carving last Feb. If you like anything in particular let me know.
Polynesiac sent me some beautiful wood today. Can't wait to get into the box. Big Thanks

Heres the Last Latest Update on the 12" Maori Warrior for TikiBird. He is finished but for the finish. I only have 2 coats of lacquer on him now and he will get 6 or 7.





This was a Long tedious piece. I'm tired and goin to bed
Goodnight

Benz after seeing these latest pictures, I know I want to go with a statue. Let me know by email what you think you will want for it and also if you have a paypal address send that, I want to start sending you money now with the idea of picking it up at the Hukilau. Let me know if this sounds ok.

I have an idea for something that will be the "finishing touch" for my Tiki bar, once complete.

If it okay if I email you my thoughts and you can consider it?

I find myself getting excited looking at the work here on the site, does that make me a hopeless Tiki-head? (stuck in Ohio no less. )

Benzart your stuff is great, the Maori always turn out great, the Tiahia looks good and has a perfect shape for a pendant. the Moai is looking really good, i really looking forward to seeing him done.

#30 arrived Saturday and Mrs. Fury couldn't be happier with Ben's art. Got lots of praise from people at the Aloha Festival on Sunday. Ben's art must be seen in person to truely capture all the subtle detail. Thanks Ben........Bongofury.

I know, that 3 hour thing Sucks. I'm usually up only till 10 pm, 7:00pm your time, which sucks. On the nights when I can't sleep I actually get to post at the Same time as some of you.Ain't fair. But I'm home All day long.
I have a De-barked,22"tall by 14' wide log that has beentapping me on the shoulder more and more here recently. What to do with it???
It is a Nice piece of Fla Slash Pine, about 4 months felled,
