Looks great Raff . Not sure what you could use for sanding. I have used those small drum sanding bits and then it usually ends up with hand sanding. I hate sanding too.
No matter what its still a kick ass tiki.

How about some type of files? I bought a dremel contour sander, but haven't used it yet, so I can't say how well it would work for that headdress... Keep going tho!! It's lookin sweet.

You know it is very strange how similar the Little Kahuna's headdress looks to those 3 HIP dudes. They have cleaner lines and simetry, but the overall structure is really the same.

Anyway I just spent another 2 hours sanding. I decided to stop whining and getdown to business. I'm afraid a file might tear off more than I mean to, and a drum sander won't get into the sharp corners, so I'm using a Mouse sander as much as possible, and small hand chisels.

I am getting really itchy to begin staining though. Thanks for the encouragement and suggestions guys.

Okay, here he is, The Little Kahuna, give or take a few coats of varnish.







Ad some detail of the headdress that caused me fits.


Now on to the next one.

Dude that's nuts! SO unique. I think the headress really has some cool grain going on there. So where's this hip-cat gonna hang out?

Congrats! It looks fabulous. He looks just like he stepped off the tour bus in Hawaii and is headed to the nearest tiki bar.

Very fine work, Raffertiki. Carving is something I've never had the nerve to try. Each one you do gets better and better yet. Love the crazy shirt too!

Raff, it really turned out nice. I like that you've decided to do your own thing. Artistic license & all that. It'll keep us all on our toes waiting to see what's next.

The headpiece turned out great.
