There's nothing like standing up a large scale tiki. Just be prepared to refine some of the spots that need a little tweaking . Laying down and stood up are two totally different views.

Thanks to all for the compliments.

Here's an update on "the big one". I finished staining it today. I will be putting some satin spar varnish on in the next few days. Sorry Dave, I forgot to put myself in the pic for scale.



I can't wait to stand it up, but that may not happen til my 'assistants' show up at the next Chop!





That is one nice carving. It'll be cool seeing the different perspective when it's looming over you.

Ben, I estimate it to weigh ~400 lbs. Could you come give me a hand standing it up?

Here's today's progress. I'm coating it with McCloskey's Man O'War spar varnish. I love the richness it gives the wood.
Partially coated.

Finished coating it.

I'll be in the desert all weekend, so I don't think it will be standing till the following weekend.

I took a carving break this weekend to go out to the desert for our 4x4 group's annual run. Here's me on the way, east of borrego Springs, CA. I was delivering this tiki to a friend at the run.

Another friend was bringing one of mine back to me, after borrowing it for a luau party. Here's both tikis enjoying the campfire.
That one on the right does stand straight, but for some reason is leaning for the pic.

We have a tradition of bringing our Christmas trees out to burn. This is just three trees put on the fire at the same time. That tiki got scorched a bit.

A great weekend, I am now refreshed and ready to carve again.

Sweet weekend Bill. I found my weight belt and have been getting ready for a good old fashioned tiki raising this weekend. Let's get that baby up!
What are you doing next? Do a big one this time...
Buzzy Out!

The real reason I hosted this months chopchop: to get the needed help to stand this guy up!

More pics of the process, and all the other activities, in the chopchop thread.
