Wow! The stain came out really nice and awesome blending of culture. The facial art matches the heads without being over whelming. Would be proud to display them as a center piece. Great work.

Thanks TikiLizard, TikiT08, Seeks, Benz, Conga.
Benz...what's next? My new avante-garde Moai of course! Bearing some resemblance to the artist.


HAPPY July 4th!

Like Seeksurf suggested, a comparison of finishes. Formby's Tung Oil on left, and Minwax wipe-on poly on right, both after a single application.
Not much difference, eh? Slightly glossier on the right.

Thanks TikiFriki! I couldn't find the Watco at my local hardware, so I used the Formsby. I'm gonna look for it at Home depot when I get the chance.

Yeah Home Depot should have it, that's where I have gotten mine (in the stain section) or a woodcraft store if you have one by you?? They still turned out great!

Cool looking Moais, surfintiki! I've used Watco before too and have been happy with the results. Find some yet?

PS Put a string on that Chicken Nugget Moai and wear it around your neck!

A nice set of twins, it is amazing how two things that look so much alike have such different personalitys and features. So I'm with Aloha, which finish do you like better? You may have said, but what type of wood is that? I don't see a lot of grain features.

The pizza and nuget carvings made me hungry.

I'm gonna take one of these chicken Moai's and glass 'em up in surfboard resin, make it a neck pendant, and put in tiki marketplace.
Who's buyin?
Alohahaha, I think I like the one on the right, the rub-on minwax... it kind of made a richer color of the wood, brought out the reds..,.although it's a little shinier. I think certain pieces would require certain finishes. I gotta still try out the Watco.

I seem to stray away from glossy but I think the finish job on the right looks better, maybe 'richer' in color, but they don't appear to be very glossy to me--could just be the pix. Great job on both though--fantastico!

Seems you haven't been active on TC for the last few days (6 days ago)--maybe having something to do with a gal named Bertha? Hope you're getting some sweetness from B. We've been lovin' some head high + for days now on FB.

Here's Folly on Sat. Been tapering off a bit since then but still niiiiiiiice!

(not me in the pic--just snapped before I went out for some enjoyment)

OH MY GOD...Howlin' and seeks
I am so SORRY for not being around, but duty calls! 8 days straight...surfin every day. I'm so sore, my back is mangled, and I'm growing webs between my fingers (again) and gills. Ground swell for this long! In July! It just won't go away. Chest to Head, with overhead sets...everyday! Gonna last through the weekend too. I'm getting nothing done. Work, surf, drink a beer, sleep...repeat.
Sorry no photos, I'm surfing every moment til dark.
That Folly bch shot looks similar, just look at the sets stackin up out back.
C-ya when I can!
