Wow! Yes indeedee! He looks even better outside. Without the flash glare we can really see how much work you put into this guy. Very impressive. I like the idea of putting the stringers on the board, that will really set the piece off. Way to go and thanks for posting another set of pics. It looks great.

Hey Rodeo I dig that surf'n tiki.
I really like the two tone look and the tiki has a nice old look to him and thats a good thing.
Keep up the cool carving.

He looks better in the sun, as most things to do with surfing. He's got some old skool personality.

Aloha everyone.

Will, I am not sure if its red cedar, I used stain on the body and just poly on the board for this one. Thanks for the advice on getting a carving bar. I will get one soon.

Polynesiac, No commissions here. Just carving for fun.

Conga , it snowed here on Saturday. But the weather is getting better.

Gman,Swampfire,JohhnyP and Master Benzart thanks for the kind words.

Fire head is starting to take shape, I tried to cut in deep to make the features stand out. I am now sanding and trying to clean up all the edges of the flames. Still have to add some teeth and whatever else comes to mind. I am sure it will tell me when its done.

Cool man! Love the surf tiki and the flame tiki. WHats your plan as far as colour for the flame tiki? I think leave him in a light stain, but give the flames some blended accents which blend into the natural wood colour.

Rodeo,
Yesssir Reeee. I really dig this guy. Your style is coming through full on. As always looking forward to seeing how this one finishes. By the way, what tools did you use to get into the flames?

Rodeo,

Bomber job using the sapwood and the heartwood to create a three dimensional affect. Your tikis seem to be kind of Hotrod Style. Is that what you are into?
Killer Job.

Will
