Great job on him. Love the ebony finish and it polished up like glass.

Thanks Cy, 5150, my mate Amate and 'giles! I appreciate your thoughts--I wasn't sure if this carving was going to hit the mark. I generally don't use ebony stain and it seems to take a lot of work to achieve a consistent and deep finish, so it doesn't look painted. I think sanding and re-staining is rather addictive and I may turn this into a life-long project.

A few more shots and we're on to some other spring chizzlin'.

Great one! I see you are exploring new grounds too,
cheers to that, maybe not so comfortable like doing the same over and over,
but I think is what makes us learn the most, the uncertain paths..
That sometimes we do regret taking..
but if you get there, you are a lot more rich and experienced than before

Aloha to AlohaStation--

yes--roots are good! Although I "drifted" to chisel things that may be more appealing
in the northwoods of Wisconsin--the whole "tiki" thing (Polynesian, modern, tiki pop, etc)
is what got me interested in carving in the first place.

Plus--this place is still filled with a lot of inspiration to suck me back into tikis or at
the very least--tiki-inspired carvings.

Thanks!
