Loki, I wouldn't want to get hit with this either.
I did drill every tooth and ground the bases flat so they would sit well on the wood. I used hemp jewelery cord to lash them to the club.

Benzart. Thank you and I'll try not to drop this on my toe, I cut myself on one of these while I was drilling them, these teeth are sharp!!!

Kahi Ki'i I checked that book out, I think I am going to order it. After holding the completed piece, I can understand why these clubs were restricted to the warrior class.

BK I do apprceiate the complement.

JohnnyP,

Oh Yeah...that looks great! I'm glad the teeth worked out for you and I'm very impressed with the piece you made. Very nice. I agree, that would hurt like stink to get hit with. Yikes!

What else are you working on up there? Any changes to the big PNG tiki? I wanna see more of that one.

Gman,
Glad you like it! By the middle of next week you should have the wood blank to make your own.

Thanks again for the teeth. This was a fun project.
JP

JohnnyP,

What's on tap for this weekend? Are we gonna see a PNG tiki update? What else do you have in the works? I can't wait to see the new club with the tiger teeth on it.

I carved another fish this weekend. I know it is not exactly tiki, but it is tropical décor. The wood is Box Elder and has swirls of gray and red throughout the grain. It is 3 feet wide from wing tip to wing tip.

Manta Ray








Here is the progress of the Mai Kai tiki.
Mrs. JohnnyP painting. I couldn’t ask for better! She is painting a thin wash of color, the flash makes it look brighter and bolder than it really is. She also gave the face a wash of black/gray to make it look older. Note the reference photo Swanky provided. (thank you again)





Done painting



Outside for stain. Stained a fairly light color. A mix of MinWax pickled oak and early American, sprayed on. The base is wiped on with leftover odds and ends mix of dark colors. Here it is. It will stay outside for a few days to dry before we bring it in. See the snow. This is what we picked up last week just before the Superbowl. Spring is only six weeks away.






Thanks for looking, have a great day.

JP

JohnnyP,

That looks so great man! The colors combined with the stain really set this one off. His face really stands out now. Wikkid props to Mrs. JohnnyP. That is so killer! I like what you did with the base too. How did you get that effect? Is it carved, burned, painted, or something else. And that manta, that is choice! What a cool project. You had to remove lots of wood to get those wings thin didn't ya. I bet that took a while. I love the way you carved the face in feeding mode. Way to go! Jeeze, now I want one....Ack!

Thanks guys!

The snow missed us here, only a trace amount, we got lucky

The base is only stained, not burnt. I had some real old stain that was kinda thick and I dumped in the remains of a couple other colors, shook it up and wiped it on. The stain did not want to spread like it normally does and I had to really rub it in. It made for an antique look, because it absorbed differently everywhere.

Cutting the ray out wasn't bad, the hard part was making the wings look like each other.

Kaha k'i' Thanks. I have to admit my wife's ideas are "usually mo bettah than mine!" as well!

This big tiki is looking great JP. I really like the Manta ray. A Really unique animal to carve, not something you would normally see and here we wre blessed with 2 manta's within a couple weeks. Nice going.
