I was wondering what happened to you. I remember you were part of the South Florida ohana and then disappeared. I love you carvings. Crisp, clean cuts with alot of detail. You put alot of effort into your designs and it shows in the final pieces. Keep em coming.

Thanks again all!

What is it about these tikis and their pleas for detail? Koochie-Ku won't let me touch him with stain until he gets more tattoos! So I added a tat to his arms and on the sides of his mouth.. And he still wants MORE!

Capt. Listen to the Tiki.

I started a 2 1/2 ft Lono (my first) he's talkin already. Actually, he has a foul mouth right now. He's going to take a while.

Take your time. Koochie looks awesome. Keep moving. Take pics, post em up.

Here's a small, 3 inch tall Moai I carved in a rock I found.. I think it's sandstone?

Beautiful work Capt'n! Your eye for form/shape is amazing & you get those 'junction' points so crisp, ka pai.

Love the stone Moai, looks very much like the native lava/tuff from E.Island. Can I ask how you went about carving him, tools/processes? (maybe you could explain on the new stone-carving thread..?)

Great stuff! Tama

Thanks!

Tama: The stone screamed Moai so I picked it up and in my pocket it went.. I just drew lines with pencil then went to shaping- profile first. I used an old set of small files that are now mostly worn out and ruined! Wrong tools, but enough to get the job done on this soft stone. Maybe I should post this info in the stone thread so others don't make the same mistake with their tools...

McTiki: I have 1 large palm log left that I brought from Florida then I'm out.. Need a new source since there aren't any hurricanes here in Ohio! Thanks for your comments..

He's a little beauty - it does look like a softer version of the stuff I'm using which is basically a sandstone. Get yourself a few diamond tools as Tama suggested and you'll be set for plenty more of these.

Cap't Skully, I got this mailman standing in my garage, not saying a word as I was working on the green Lono. Finally I stopped and he said he had to deliver this mail and was afraid to interrupt me doing such intricate work. I wondered what I was getting sent to me now and as I opened it up, in Amazement I saw this beautiful Stone moai with a note to do with it what I wished. So I got my Big hammer(where is GMAN with his PIGSTISK when you need him. Anyway I got my big hammer and made Little moai out of your big moai! At the last minute, I couldn't bear it and turned the big hammer away to fall helplessly on the garage floor. Instead I drilled a hole in his head for a string so I could wear him around my neck



Thanks, he maeans a lot to me and now that he's part of the family, he will be put to work like the rest!

Just a little token to say thanks for all your help- He's lookin' good as a pendant!

That's a nice mailman you have not to startle you while working. That or he thinks you're completely nuts and not to be messed with while holding sharp objects- lest HE be the next carved!

Hey Skully,

I really like your work. Nice clean lines and shapes. Can I ask how long it takes you to carve a piece like Kootchie-Ku for example? I've been spending 30-40 hours on a carving. Of course carving Tikis is fun, but I'd like to be able to get them done quicker. Sometimes they get made up as I go. Probably why it takes so long.

Also, what 3-D program did you use to do your line layouts? They look really good.

Thanks, and keep up the awesome work!
