More pics of old pieces. These were 2 halves of the same log. The fresh log was too big and heavy to deal with in my confined work space, so I cut it in half to help better manage them. As the pieces have dried, they have become kinda light (approx 35lbs/ea). They are 45" tall - not small.


The lono was an experiment in hiding a face in a face (inspired by LLT's drawings). Do you see it?


A recent discussion on another thread about paint - these peiecs the petina is painted not burnt.

Something new: got few hours to carve today. Soggy - rotting palm - kept it simple. I will be doing a few events in the coming months and need some cheaper tikis. The one on the bottom left is trash. There was a crack in the center of the log that I cut through. I'll let it dry and see if I can save it.

"Cheaper" .... LOL!

Most would pay top dollar for those when done!

Well done!

Mahalo!

Thanks, they came out better than expected (except the one). After 3 hours carving on Saturday I needed a cool down. Jumped in the pool and remembered why I live in SFL, 78 degrees!! My daughters thought I was crazy till I threw them in - they spent the rest of the day in the pool! The carvings are drying and will not be brought out till after the New Year. I have the holidays off and hope to do some more carving.

Nice, Tom! I like that tone on the body. Sort of an olive-tone judging by the pics?

More progress on some tikis for the Indy Craft Swell. Its a local show right here on A1A. Last year I had a great spot right on the road. Still have a few more things to wrap up. The weather is supposed to be in the 70's, water temp is about the same!
