Sorry about all of the repeat posts...just like me, my computer has issues! Hopefully this will only come through once. Here are some recent pics of the shack (with the deck and the tiki..in case I didn't mention that)

So over the winter I was working on a tiki..I got the idea from this totem. I liked him holding the fish, so I wanted that in my design.




I also thought I would have his feet crossed, I had to have my son model (I'll spare that pic)


I finished the headpiece and decided to use a wine based stain. I was a bit worried about using the color but I wanted to try a different stain.


Here he is on the deck


My boy opening shop


And finally at night


I had run a cable underground, tested it, buried it, and when I later tried to get a signal it didn't work. I had to partially dig a new trench and rerun the cable. I had a lot of cutoffs and was going to throw them out but I threw together a makeshift bar that will serve as storage in the winter. Hopefully I will begin tweaking the inside but I have to make a large Easter island head for a co worker.

Thanks for looking.

Love the scales on the hat and the colors are fantastic. A beatiful piece all around and top notch carve!

Nice detail. I like the contrasting, yet complimentary colors. You've obviously got a good eye for what looks good.

Thanks Cy...that's a nice complimennt considering the work you have with stain you as well FTLOT. Thanks and good talk with you again amate.

I actually had to make an easter island head for a coworker. I don't know why, but I always seem to have trouble getting him to look just right. This was a better effort (I think) The log ended up having a nice spalt to it.



here is the profile



the grain



and in his new home

It's funny that the simplicity of a moai is hard to capture. The hands on your latest are outstanding GP

Here are a few pics of some work I have finally been able to put on line.


after the long winter I was able to finally get some warm weather to work in the garage.
The weather really wreaked havoc out back.


I decided to give this guy a braided ponytail.


I gave him a sword, sash, and a peg leg too.





took this idea from a movie. He also has a gold tooth but the contrast doesn't stand out as I hoped.



This guy took over as the new deck tiki...I think I mentioned that a while ago...move the old guy around the corner.
