Well the stain didn't quite turn out how I had thought it would. I am now thinking that maybe I should have just used a neutral colored sealer or even just varnish. But I did want it to have some color and I thats what I got. Anyways , Here is the almost finished carving with the first few coats of poly on.



I am happy with the way it turned out and hope the new owner will like it also.

C&C welcomed and appreciated.

Carving looks cool - maybe go darker with the background colour? Like real dark to accentuate the flames more? I don't feel the lacquer you got happening now does justice to your carving skills - ain't that a backhanded compliment?

Love the business card holder too - very cool.

That came out great. I think you started a whole new style or segment.

WOW Rodeo, that grain gives the Flame Real Sizzle. Nice job, even though you didn't plan it that way. The Tiki is great too.

Rodeo,

Be careful the tires on those bikes don't melt. That is one hot tiki.

Just started yesterday. I am trying to carve at least 2 hours everyday. I am going to take a shot at vending at a tattoo and kulture show in sept. So I need to get my skills improved and stock up.




Mahalo for looking.

Loki's right, your stuff is getting better and better.
I can't believe how much you've done since yesterday when it was just a log!

Great start on the new one, only started yesterday? You're gettin' fast, bro! I dig the little skull he's holding.

I had missed the pic of the flame tiki all finished up and I have to say that tiki is one of the coolest I've seen! The stain actually ADDS to the flame - see how it brings out the grain around the flames? It makes it look ALIVE. Totally awesome! I'm glad you chose not to paint it red, I think that would have destroyed the beautiful grain patterns in the wood. I bet the new owner is very pleased! good luck with prepping for vending! keep us posted on what ya do!
