Thanks for sharing

i hope you put a great, orange light behind that when it's on your porch.

maybe a fog machine to make it come out the mouth. it would scare all the curly tails away.

Yes special effects are in the final stages. I had to carve the back of the log out for it to dry so there is plenty of room inside for effects. On the other hand, while I have the stuff out, more finishing this weekend. They still need one more sanding and another coat of Poly.



It amazes me still - the way palm transforms from a white, stringy mess to a silky, beautiful golden brown with the addition of Polyurethane!

Aloha, Aloha!

Wow...these new ones are really lookin' top-notch! I dig the mask and agree with everyone else, saying how it's a perfect carving for the season! Zombie-tiki...hmmm...zombiki?

TOTALLY digging that last cook islands inspired one with the heart - very playful and animated carving, super well done! I've been really into carving out the spaces in tikis recently and love the look of the arms and the body!!!

Carve deeper! Just kidding, really nice work, looking forward to special effects. And
since you're here, hello to Polynesiac. Don't see you around these parts that often.
