The Heart Tiki is intended as a wedding gift for my brother. I'll give him the choice between this or some fancy dishes. I leave Wednesday, I hope I get it finished in time!

Polynesiac - you need to come around more often. Will Carve is one that has motivated me to carve away from the shape of the wood. The best way to do that is to punch a bunch of holes into it. I had experimented with the body shape of the Heart Tiki before tackling the larger piece of wood. The bottom half is my favorite part of the tiki. The neck/chest/head did not come out quite like I wanted. Next one will be better.

Scaring the crap out of kids in my neighborhood. Smoker and airhorn with my cute little daughter passing out candy - they expect it and still get scared. My house isn't even close to being the scariest on my block.

Wow, that carving is huge, OR, you daughter is very tiny.
Pretty impressive, I didn't realize the scope of the project
from the earlier pics.

Yeah, I was thinking that guy was about 2 feet tall max. A lot of work in that one.

Its about 4+' - that log was so big and nice that I wanted to get 2 pieces out of it. The Lono is done I just need to take some glamour shots of everything. At first I could barely move the halves. Now that they are much drier, they weigh around 30lbs/each. I am going to offer this and others for sale soon.

Rather unassuming piece of wood. Do you see it? I do, and its a little out of my comfort zone.

I see a horse or a whale depending on how I squint my eyes. Since this is TC and not the animal channel, I'm fairly certain both of those are incorrect. Looking forward for you to reveal what your eye sees.

I see the potential of a large manaia on that slab or some maori themed wooden panel.
I love that gargantuan halloween monster.
