I'm back....Check out my latest work! I'd love to get some feedback.

Check out what I call my "Cannibal"



Here are a couple of Tangs



Here's a small moai out of cedar.



Here's another small one a Marquesan.



And another a Tangaroa in the round!

The double tang and the marq are killers. Nice work. What kind of wood?

Benjamin.

Well I can't believe its been so long since I last posted something. I guess life just got in the way. Anyway I have a few more carvings to post and these i am putting up for sale in the marketplace. I had a person ask me to make them a yip won and I really liked doing it so I made some more. The first two are from a salvaged piece of pecan. This wood was in bad shape and that is why these are only carved on one side (made to hang on the wall).

39 in. tall, 1 3/4 in. thick, 9 in. wide

36 in. tall, 1 3/4 in. thick, 9 in. wide
This next one is a piece of fir. Very thin so it too is only carved on one side.

48 in. tall, 1 in. thick, 9 in. wide
Hope you like them. They are stained with good old mahogany stain. I have more that I am working on so I will keep posting this time. Sorry I haven't been posting, just been to busy to sit down and post. Thank you for checking them out.

Well I told you I would post more and here you go. These are the projects I am working on right now. The following are two more yipwon that I am in the process of shaping. They are red oak, and these will be carved on both sides. The taller is 60 in. and the other is 57 in.

The next are some gope boards I am trying. These are 60 in. I tried staining two of them instead of painting. I have had a few people say they like the stained ones so let me know what you think.

These next ones I am trying out the painting. (And yes it looks like I copied a piece that Lake used as inspiration too, sorry man. His is nicer anyway.)These are 60 in. as well.

The next ones I designed myself, the first two are 60 in. And the small one is 36 in. It is designed from a Solomon Island paddle I saw and I am carving it in the gope board style.

I hope all is well in the tiki central world and I hope everyone has fun at Oasis. Comments always welcome and very appreciated.

Wow, you got skills with the jigsaw!

I like the stained boards over the painted boards, they have a more earthy look.
Maybe if you tried a combo, mostly stained with some paint highlights?
I think that would look great!

Thank you 4wd. I think you are right about the stain too, and a combo just might be what the doctor ordered. I use a jigsaw on some of the work and a bandsaw on other parts. The jigsaw breaks the thin parts of the wood where they come to a point, at least thats been the experience. I ruined several of my first attempts at the yipwon because of the jigsaw. But that could have been because of the wood I first tried. Thank you again for your compliment.
