I had a show in Ohio over the weekend and didn't get a chance to show the finished Cannibal...

Here he is...



28" H x 8" W. Carved from White Pine




what kind of stain did you use on this guy??? again I love the texture... do you add the texture later or just carve him that way?

Grand Poobah, thanks for the kind compliments!

I used a combination of three different colors of stain on this, some are wiped on and some are brushed.

The marks all come from carving.

Carved a couple of tikis from the recently acquired Red Cedar. "Marquesan Tiki" is 11.5" H x 5" W and "The Sneer" is 10.5" H x 3.5" W. The deeper the cuts, the more the red heartwood peeks through.

Aloha Jeff!

Yes, I remember you doing some work in Red Cedar in the past.

Soft enough to palm carve, and it leaves a nice waxy finish on the surface. And the surprise inside is really cool.

Thanks for the kind compliment... Much appreciated!
