One thing for sure Bill, living on the island gives you some great backgrounds for your photos.

This was last week's deadline - a 17" tall Marq carved out of Monkeypod.
TC member KAHAKA was coming with his lovely wife for a visit to my island, and wanted to take home a suitcase friendly Tiki.
I only got one shot of the finished little guy before he was spirited away to the mainland!

I started by roughly cutting off the outer white wood, I didn't want a two-tone tiki.


This is before stain.


Finished!

Wait, that's all it takes? I'm going to be there at the end of November!

Seriously, though, that's some really nice work...

Cheers!

Thank you guys!
Here's the finished Tiki.
It's a 30" tall piece of Koa that grew about ten miles from my house.


It has a great grain, but it's hard to see with the shine from the wax/oil finish.


You can see the grain better in this shot.
It's a real nice carving wood.




I wasn't happy with this one so i re-stained it to show the detail more.




Yeah, mo bettah!
BTW, this one is available, $600.

I carved this Marquesan Bust almost a year ago now, but I just took this pic of it the other night. The lighting was just right in my kitchen!



This was just with my cell phone. I'll have to recreate it with a real camera.
