that guy is looking great, love the shirt, can't wait to see how it turns out with all the various stain colors. Very good imagination, i don't think i have ever seen a tiki with a shirt, but heck,after seeing how good it looks i would not be suprised if there are not more in the future.

Hey Raffertiki- That's a cool piece. As a Dangerfield fan AND a tiki fan, I'm a fan of your tiki!

I got to see RD live at the Jones Beach Theater a while back. He was a classic.

Speedos.

I'm hoping to stain him this weekend. I want to add some detail to the headdress, but the wood is beginning to get dry and crumbly. I still have to figure out what I'm going to do.

I started, this morning, carving a leaf pattern on the headdress. Boy am I out of my league. This is going to involve far more sanding than I am comfortable with. Arggghhhhh! There will be no further pics until I get this under control.

super cool ! ! The original approach is the way to go. This thing is going to be AWESOME. That's what I like about TC.One person inspires another who inspires another who inspires the first guy [or gal]. It's like a great upward spiral of art.

Thanks Saxotica, and welcome to TC. This is definately the place to get inspired.

Ben, do you have any advice for sanding the tight nooks and crannies?

Thanks Hewey. Paloma, I not done yet.

So here's the update, I decided to give the Little Kahuna a pineapple haircut. But I'm feeling way over my head on this. The wood suddenly got very dry, and it became more and more difficult to make clean cuts.



So how do I polish this sucker? I've had some success with small hand chisels, but it's not enough, and sanding will take forever. Does anyone have a nice easy tip for a fool that tried to jump too high?

Hey RAffer, check out these tikis from over in the Main page in the HIP thread. The headdress looks Awfully familiar, hmmmm..


How did they get theirs that way? I think they must have seen yours and modeled them after it??
