looking great so far, love that grain! but tell the truth, you always put some blood on your tikis to make them more alive and special, is that it? I think it works great actually

Thanks Finky, Appreciate the kind words.

Laojia, Thanks, I Knew Nothing would be missed by you and I'm Happy to share my space with you. Glad you like this latest Moai.

Mudbone,, Thanks a bunch,

C-Chimp, Thanks, glad you liked the progress, and Way to give a lesson on tiki bites, though you should let them happen n their own.. ;p

Thanks Aloha, Hope you are enjoying your Redwood. Yes it is Supposed to be chippy I guess so we don't carve it all up. It is a mamber of the Cypress family I believe and the dust should not be breathed as any wood but I don't believe it's toxic like exotic hard woods.

Paipo, Thanks for the props on this one and you Should be afraid of the hook blade But you should not stay away from it as for as frightening as it is it can be also very useful.

Hey Tiki-G,,Strange hey, I had forgot about your card being there, cool. Glad you like this blood thirsty little guy

Hey Surfin, Thanks for the Great props, glad this is a nice one to'ya.

Thanks tikigodz, No stain, maybe a bit of flame on the hat but straight lacquer finish from there.

Thanks Seeks, you are TOO kind, Yes and it Carves like the same cross between cedar and pine!!

Conga, Thanks, I value your judgement,but I consider you a bit biased ??? Thanks for the comps.

Andy,,, Thanks for coming around and with such kind words,, I Appreciate very much. HappyHappy

Thanks mijaba, the props are enjoyed! done soon.

Amate, thanks too, final shots soon

Thanks Clarita, My Argentenian Sun Flower! Shhh You let me secret out to So many peeps,, naww, just a hungry Moai..You KNOW i can't tell everyone All my secrets but I might tell you one or two??

Here's a few progress shots but for some reason he HATES the camera in this stage.

He does'nt like the camera because he only has one eye to smile with! The decent thing to do is put an eye patch over it so he could look cool, ARRGGHHH! Great job Tikimaster!

Like all of Ben's works, this guy is just about to come alive and pop out of the screen. I wish I could get that much personality out of a carving. Amazing!

Hi Ben, so sorry too long away from you. Terrific carvings. I still plan to work on those special tikis you sent. Right now I'm working non-stop on the Sacramento Crawl mug. The first test mugs came out today and they were all perfect. Now I have 47 more to do. I'll try to stay in touch, Wendy

Nice salvage job on the little (and I do mean little) stone piece. As for the wood moai, I can't find it now but I believe you said you were going to lacquer it. Is that the way you went? I'm still trying to learn all the different finishes.
