very unique design Raffer....the aloha shirt is super!



I don't know if an aloha shirt has ever been carved onto a tiki, but until it's prooved otherwise, I'm going to make the claim that mine was the first.

So where's this hip-cat gonna hang out?



He's going to hang with me until he gets his own pad. (means - I'm going to try to sell him). Shhh


Tammy, I don't know how you got in that handbasket, but you carve real nice yourself

Oddly enough I'm drinking limeade and gin after a long hot day, and it is mighty sweet.

You keep raising the bar on us rookies.



Rodeo, I still want to get around to making one of those tiki benches.

Carving is something I've never had the nerve to try



Sam, we've like, all been waiting patiently for your first carving post.


Quote:
that headress looks really cool but it also looks like it was a bee-ahtch to carve. You make it look easy.



Easy nothing, read previous posts. I did my share of bellyaching on this one.


Bamboo Princess, thank you and welcome to TC


Quote:
I like that you've decided to do your own thing



I realized that there are a lot of folks that I'll never catch up to as far as traditional carving goes. So if I want to make my mark I'll have to go off on my own tangent.


Quote:
Too much more detail like that and we will expect it ALL the time. no More slacking off now that we know what you are capable of.



Ben, you're killing me. Actually I have some ideas fermenting in my head bone, but I need to find some thicker logs. And as tough as that headdress was, I think it taught me alot.


Thanks Conga, Surfi, TTammy, Thanatos, Rodeo, Sam, Poly, Princess, Aaron's, and Benz!

John, so how did you do the colors on the shirt? I think you said you were going to stain it, but the colors are so vivid, it looks like paint.

Hey Aaron, can't you tell, Raffer cut out an actual shirt and glued it onto the shirt carving, How ELSE could he have gotten that realistic looking shirt.
Raffer, Every carving you will Ever do will just be practise for the rest to come. You Never get to quit practising.

Aaron's,

I used water-based stains which are really more like watered down paint. Then I took a tip from TikiTammy's thread and sanded it down before applying the oil-based wood stain over the entire piece.

We had house guests for near two weeks, but that didn't stop me from chipping away a little. I had a funky little log so I started a funky little Boai. A cross between a Moai, and a Benzart. He still needs work.

He looks a little moody, but in a likeable way. I'd think I'd be upset if I didn't have a torso yet.

Cool, Raffertiki. He's got attitude. He says, "Give me a break already, why don't ya, and cut the crap...." That really looks like what he's saying! Great work....

Boai, I Really like that. You may be onto a whole new family of tiki here Raffer! He looks pretty cool too. Is he bossing you around yet? Looks like he probably could. Now remember, No Slacking, we KNOW what you Can do!

There is a place in Milwaukee called Bryant's. Normally their drinks are wonderful. But your new guy looks like he just tried one of their mai tais! They're awful! That's exactly the face I made. Love your Hawaiian shirt guy too, that one's a classic.
