Cool that it's made of cedar. Cool looking tiki. So cool you are donating it for a charity auction. Someone will be very lucky to win that.

Rodeo he's so great, I especially love his forehead & head dress, his interlocked hands and his belly.
I can't wait to see what you do next!

He looks like an ancient tiki from deep within the tropical jungle. I love the deep cuts and color. More more more.

I love the grain & dark patina, did you burn him lots? He looks like he's been touched & rubbed by thousands of passing Tiki bar patrons for luck.

Rodeo, love to see your new stuff! Seems like we both started out like gangbusters right around the same time, but slowed down a bit lately. I like the witco-like dark grain. It must feel good knowing it went to a good cause. Good Karma for your next carve! Keep it up, my friend!

Mahalo again for the kind words

Yup , he got the torch and a good scrubbin with a wire brush. I really dont have any clue as to getting a proper finish but it seems to work okay.

Rodeo! this one is great! I love that first picture you posted- the contrast of jungle/polynesia and snow is outrageous. Best one yet, definately worth the wait.

Rodeo........(always loved your T.C. name)
We should have a midwest tiki event called the tiki rodeo.
Cowboy hats, hawaiian shirts, tiki and hot rods....It'd be cool.
But I'm sidetracking....I love this tiki. Pictures in the snow are the best. Ya got kids don't ya? Its tough to balance out family, jobs, art, cars and kids aint it? Ya wanna carve but ya still want to be great dad. Try telling them that youd rather carve than play, just doesn't work.

You seem to have a nice balance of it. Your art is awesome.

Its nice you can carve in the garage. I don't like the sawdust all over my engines, parts and car. So I carve out in the carport off the garage. Last time I roughed out my Moai it was 15 degrees. Those tropics carvers just don't know what they are missing.

Stain sure takes a long time to dry though doesn't it. Spar takes FOREVER.

Awesome tiki rodeo.....just talks to ya.

That's a fine piece of tiki there, rodeo. He has lots of personality too with a vintage feel to him.

Mr Dale , your so right about finding the balance between play time and time to carve. My wife and kids are cool and I can get some time in during the day when the minions are at school. I wish I had engines to worry about getting dusty ( I hate my minivan)

Thanks Sam and Marcus , very appreciated from such talented artist such as your selves.

Heres a shot of some progress on the surftiki I started awhile ago. Some final sanding and its ready for stain. I took the torch to him today.
I am planning on staining the tiki dark and the board with just varnish. I did try something different and masked off a simple flame pattern and will add a thin colored stripe down the middle later..

Thanks for looking and feedback is always welcomed

I don't think you are the slowest carver, but you are a great carver. I like the surf look ( I live in the wrong state, but have the right state of mind). Nice torch work, I kept trying to figure out what kind of wood it was, then I read what you wrote.
What's the weather like up there today?
