Serious chops! I think you've got him dialed in now. Time to start being very careful!!! Smaller and smaller chips - don't go and kill him again! Oh, and after seeing the new pics, I still think you should keep the pee pee.

Start cleaning him up slowly and working your way toward the 60 grit sandpaper. I likee a loteee! Good save! I can't wait to see him sanded out to 220 and finished in that stain.....

The reconstruction seems to be a good thing: symmetry looks very good.
Did I heard about stain? COOOOOLLLL

As advocate for Tikis around the world...I have to tell you to leave that guys pee pee alone! You gotta leave the pee pee and the butt. G's right, we love the butt! Check Tama's thread about wahines and butt swirls...

Ya know, I admire your tenacity so much! I would have set him on fire by now, and then killed myself!

When you get finished, this guy will have an unbeatable personality!

Benella, you heard right! Dark stain!

Robin, butt swirls might be a cool idea but killing yourself is a little extreme!

Picked up another new log today (black cherry) This sucker was heavy!!! It looks like it will have a cool natural color (hard to tell from the pictures though)

Hey TikiFreak, Excellent job finally finishing this #1 tiki. Stain it and finish it and keep it forever.(I wish I still had My first!) Don't let anyone have it! ...
Unless of course you wanted to send it over here to a good home (:lol: G)
Really, good job of sticking to it.

This is my method of debarking. Paint scraper + mallet= nice long strips. It only took about 15 minutes.

Happy to see you're working hard. Any idea about the design you'll carve with this new log?

Ben

No, I'm still alive! Just been doing a lot of sanding! Just have to put in some toes and then more sanding. I will post pictures again right before stain just to make sure I'm ready for it.

The Nuge says "Wango Tango"!! Sand 'em up to 220, maybe further? Were you able to get some of the Watco rejuvenating oil? I can't wait to see him all sanded....go with the grain......you wearing your mask? We'll chat later in the week.
