Your thread is bigger than everyones put together.

Your a God!

Love the last piece as all the rest.

Are you ready? Are you? Here comes hurricane season again! I moved to central Florida but that really doesn't help much as we saw last year. It's just not the coast that's dangerous anymore! Good luck to you. To all of us Florida peeps.

I agree with Finkdaddy, He looks like he is ready leap off his perch and kick some ass.

Thanks Ben and Bamben for being so inspirational with your amazing creations.

Hey BEnBo, this is benz, lets get that JT an while he's bowed down, hit him a few with that giant penis he carries around then we'll split all the dough that falls outts his pockets, SHHH.OH HI JT, Thanks for the comps
Aloha station, thanks, but I'm afraid yu'll have to wait like the rest of us.

Aarons about the finish I Was kinking it aroung and it fell into the mahogany stain so I stained some of it that color cause I was tired of kicking it around anyway.

Finky, watch how you talk about this guy, or he gets mad and may break a leg with a smile on his face.

FLOUNDERart, where ya been, welcome back itz great to see you around here and there and Rodeotiki watch out, he's practicing jumpin outta trees and doing bodily harm upon tikihaters and he's laughing all the way. He's laughin in the air, on the ground, everywhere he hits you can hear that long low growling laugh, so watch out











He is really not ready for stain yet but half of himis so I stained half. Not sure Im going to leave the teeth unstained yet. I just had to see how it would look.
Enjoy

benzart! amazing work.. i felt your carving spirit at Oasis.. many folks were wearing pendants you made.. "Tiki Bling" is what we were calling it.

i should have tied a rope around my Moai to wear ~ it would have been heavy, but it would have been the blingyist

Ben - that guy is looking wickedly FINE! He looks like he could tear up someone's shins and not bat an eye!

Welcome back too, Flounder. Good to have you check in. Make it more often! Everyone can just meet here in Ben's thread!

Ben, that looks great. I like the teeth a different color. I always enjoy seeing your new pieces. I hope the line is not too long for my pendant. If it is no worries.

This is about the last update before he is totally done.
Sam,Thanks and I think you are right, this guy is gonna be a tough one. he is already tearing me up a finger at a time. Never has a carving bitten me as mush as this guy. He's gonna go down kicking.
Yes we can just start meeting here. Once this reaches 50 pages I think I'll start a new page, it's too big.
Swampfire thanks. I think I'll leave his teeth white for that gleeming smile.

Dont give me no lip

He's all done but 1/2 the body and the base

Ben, It's time you have a coffee table book of your work (past and present) published. You just need to get a stack of your pics under the nose of a publisher and they'll take care of the rest. I'm saying this because I want a coffee table book of your work.

beeeee-u-tee-full! I think the picture of you and him, having a stare down, should be on the cover of your book. Yes, you're doing a book.

this guy is awesome ben! he reminds a little of the grinch. NOt sure why, but he has that dr. suess-y feel to him.

I can't get over how detailed he is. Just perfect -and the white teeth really add some character to an already character ridden carving.

too cool, ben...too cool.

SOOO Benzarts Tiki Bling huh,
Keigs, he IS pretty big I guess but not perfect. He has been very difficult tho
Thantos, thanks, the headdress is larger than normal and very deep which makes it different. You can do these guys this small and you don't need big wood!
Raffertiki,I know a lot of you have mentioned my"Coffee Table" Book but there are requirements. You need a stack of Hi Res photos to slide under the publishers nose. I have some Decent pix but not the quality Needed to do this.If anyone could do it or help me do it, that person would be our own BigBroTiki. How about it Sven, possibility???

Thanx Surfintiki, I think he won the staredown

Polynesiac, yes he has Some look about him that makes him breathe and be just strange.

RevBBen, I Knew I shouldn't have added that picture, Thanks.
