Finally finished the Big Tiki (well the largest one I've done). He's 5' 5" tall. I took these pics yesterday when it was overcast (still is) and the color in the pics didn't really come out right in contrast to my white gravel driveway. Anyhow, the color is closer to the deep brown shown in the 2nd pic.









Thanks all!

Very very good work on the last one BigT!!! Me too I applaud!
The sharpness of its curves contrast very well with the design high figured of wood...

Very well done!

J.

Hey Big T....really nice job on the big one. The face is great...and
I mean this in a good way...I dig the simple lines of the body and arms.
In fact I like your hands so much that I'm gonna steal 'em.....they're
pretty close to what I had planned for my "moon head" carving.

Thanks all for the kind replies, TikiG, laojia, putiTiki, nomolos, tikiMango, hiltiki!

Conga: Greatly appreciated! I'm flattered you want to "steal" something from me! LOL I think the hands were an evolution of other similar, simple styled hands I've seen. I was sketching different ideas and when I went to draw it out on the log, that's how they came out.

8FTtiki: Thanks and I'm planning on him being an inside tiki. After finally doing something this large, I don't see how I could ever expose one of these dudes to the weather. LOL Anyways, it's just a lacquer finish, so definitely meant to be inside.

WoW! BigT! That is awesome. I love the facial features, he's got a mean glare to 'em. You don't want to make him angry! Just ...walk...away...
...and carve another one!

You can be very proud of that one. It's got a nice assembled geometry look that projects a real "classic-Hawaiian/mid-century" vibe. In other words, "Tiki"! Very well thought out!!

Okay, so what's happening with that other spaulted log?
