Update time, I actually carved this weekend!
I knocked these two guys out yesterday, and coated with varnish.



And pulled this one out of 'storage' today. I started it at a chop back in April or so, and wasn't happy with the way it was going. I fianlly figured out what I wanted to do to it.


I borrowed some paint and brushes from my pal Clysdalle, painted on the lines, and stained it after.
It's still not done, so stay tooned.

She's great, Bill. The He-Tikis far outnumber the She-Tikis.

Hey Bill, I did a 4x4 moai inspired by your work

It seems I have quite a bit of inspiration from your work.

Ack! A month since my last post! What have I been doing? Well, this one:
was started two months ago, and I did some work on it at the car show chop the other week.

And I started these this weekend. They are 98% done, just a few cleanup/touchup spots, now that I look at the pic. These are for the local outrigger club, one says "coach" and the other says "president".
Approx. 4' tall.

O.O.C.C. = Oceanside Outrigger Canoe Club.

I have a few other things to show, but no pics yet, stay tooned.

I finished the carving on this one over the weekend, at the chop. Just need to burn and stain.

I've also been working on this one, too. It's 5'4", and all woman! It will live in Seattle when finished.

I added some 'hair' to this one last week.


It was my third try, with three different grasses/leaves. I don't know the name of the plant these are from, but it's tough enough, and matches '"my vision".



I may wrap some Ti leaf lei around the bottom edge of hair to hide the staples, but as the grass dries and browns, they are becoming less noticable.
I also have a shell necklace I want to put around her neck, but other than that, she's done!
I am going to keep this one, I like it alot.

Update tomorrow on the big female tiki.

I like it just use a black marker on those staples, that will hide them

Thanks Hewey! I think a black marker would make them stand out even more, though.

Here's the big female commission piece. It's at about 90% right now. I want to put some more tattoo lines around her "female parts". Then figure out how to ship it safely to Seattle.



If it looks strikingly similar to a previous tiki, that was the plan.
