That's a "life of the party" tiki for sure. The expression is great and the grass skirt shows a lot of movement. If you can bring all that out of a log, you've got it knocked. And it's not even finished...

What a great way to start a rainy Sunday morning. You guys do realize that you're just encouraging me to keep this carving stuff up.

Yes that is a grass skirt, but it will be more obvious when I carve out his ankles and feet.

He's only about 4' tall, but makes up for it with his type A personality.

I do plan to use different colored stains, and some paint. I haven't completely worked out how I'm going to do it yet, but there is still a lot of chipping away and sanding ahead of me before I have to really address it.

Thanks everyone.

So, what ever happened to our fearless headhunter? Hit by poisonous darts? Eaten by cannibals? Converted by missionaries???

Thanks guys. The Headhunter is waiting patiently for me to stop being so busy. I'm thinking I can give him some quality time this Sunday. The bathroom is coming along fine though.

Okay I'm trying real hard not to slack off on this guy, but it's like living on the Rain Planet around here lately, and it's supposed to rain through the coming weekend as well. Waaahhhhh!

Boy what an Evil grin this guy has. If you sit there long enough, just looking at it, you will have Nightmares even Before you get to sleep. Creepy. I really Love it Raffer.

Raffer-
The smile on his face just draws you to him. The whole idea of a Tiki wearing a mask and with the grass skirt is very original. You have great talent.
Do you live in Long Island NY?

Thanks Paloma, Ben, Rodeo, and Moondance. Yeah this guy has dental issues, but I think that is part of his charm.

I think the rain is supposed to stop tomorrow morning, but this guy is soaked. Hopefully I can make some headway tomorrow.

Moondance, (a friend of mine has a horse named "Moon Dancer") I live in Huntington, L.I., NY. Do you have roots here?
