That's pretty nuts Surfintiki. Really nice carve, I love the
tentacles, they really "suck you in."

That looks amazing! Great detail on the suction cups & the strategically placed darker wood grain/knot hole really sends this piece over the top.

Excellent piece Surfin, you Definitely went Above and Beyond with the sanding. You really made the Octopus look soft and Slimy. This gives new meaning to "Stuck on You" and if you have never had nightmares about giant Octopi then you will after looking at this poor guy awhile.
I can imagine the hidden part of the tiki is blistered with welts from those powerful sucker cups you did so well showing us. Oh Yeah, Beautiful piece of wood and you even made it More so!

This is very different and very cool! I love it when someone does a great twist on a Tiki pole

EXCELLENT!!

IMHO - you're not done! This piece is screaming out for a little bit of paint. I imagine that when you look at this under normal light it looks a bit flat. Perhaps adding a slight petina or maybe even some color. Not much - just enough to highlight the beautiful wood grain. Whatever you do, DO NOT coat this in thick layer of opaque paint! Its good but could be even better!!

The octopus ended up looking great, I like very much how you did the arms, they have movement and a lot of detail, very cool!
