Many mahalos to all the supporters, patrons, cohorts and critics...


I stained this Tiki carved of earpod. He's a little more than 2 feet tall and needs another coat after the rain lets up.



ARRRRRRAAAhhhh holidays in the stain, damn it.


Mahalo for looking.

Wonderful work on the Marquesan! He looks vintage!

I really like the scowl on the Lono also.

Great stuff with great detail!

Sweet stuff Alien, the Marque is Definitely Looker and has really Cute toes, but the Lono has the Face that is Out of this World, and super expressive. There is
So
Much
Personality there and he is really trying hard to tell you he wants NO More Squash, Yuccch, Eglch. Don't give him any more of that stuff whatever you just gave him.

I love the things you've done with the realistic toes and the cubist legs, that's a very nice creation. The stain definitely makes it.
Bravo,

Benjamin.

surfintiki thanks, them toes just kinda popped out there.

tiki beat by marcus thorn, Mahalos for the kind words.

Lake Surfer, Mahalo man vintage is what I wanted so I guess it worked. Your marqs always look killer so it means a lot coming from you. Thanks for the compliments.

Benzart, Feeding the Tiki's is strictly kapu they only require sacrifice of flesh and blood. Thanks for the props.

Howland Thanks I like the dark stain too. BasementKahuna posted a recipe for dark stain I been meaning to try.

benella- The dark stain helps to hide the worm holes

More to come soon. Mahalo for looking.

Wow.

On your way to killing it with these guys also.

Loving the palm Marquesan! A nice flat piece with plenty of thickness to get some killer depth out of.
Classic stylings with the eyes on the top of the head too. Nice work!

You've got the Kona Style down to an art for sure and it shows in the second piece. Tight, tight tight!

The third piece is a nice way to mix it all up. Classic Poly Pop stylings! Looks like a vintage piece off of a Southern California apartment building!

All wonderful work to be proud of! Very inspiring!

Love your wood selections for each piece also... well thought out!!!
