Some updated shots...






Coming down to the wire on delivery date, few more coats of lacquer and a bit of time to dry. He wants to open this weekend.

I never like trying to move these guys with such a short curing time on the finishes, but...

Wish them luck!

Thanks for looking

Thanks, guys. So color...
I keep around a basic array of Minwax stains: maple, Puritan Pine, Sedona Red and special walnut. Then depending on the density and color of the wood and what I think each particular carving lends itself to, I mix from there.

The Lighter colored Ku above was particularly solid stock and has some nice natural variance in color that I didn't want to cover up, so stayed light with maple and pine shades.

The taller Lono is full of nice chisel strokes that don't really come through in the cell phone pics, but he is pretty much straight Sedona Red enriched with a bit of walnut so he has good color, but not so much it covers up the texture up close. The dark Lono is pretty much straight special walnut and the short Akua Kai is another blend, but heavier on the dark end.

Thanks again for lookin, more pics once they are in place and the surrounding artwork is complete.
