I have to admit that I do the not-so-safe thing in holding the tiki by hand when I carve it. It's the only way I can reach all around, but I do wear thick gloves.

This stone is too hard to carve with steel tools (they evaporate--literally) but this specimen was not the hardest I have carved.

This guy is about 5 inches tall and actually got another round of hand-polishing this morning, so once the sun is up I should be able to shoot another image.

There is an all-green lava stone tiki coming soon.

Aloha!

Marcus
