Thanks Roy. As I said, he was a lot of work and I ran out of steam near the end.

Finished up this 12" rough and chubby Ku.





Started another 12" Ku...only a bit more slender.

Cool stuff Amate the Skinny Ku looks promising. Towards the end carvings Always make us run out of steam, it's easy just to overlook all the things we had planned and call it quits. Looks like you pulled it out tho, it looks great.

Thanks Benz...

Here’s the other half of that beetle-riddled log I used on the slit drum. I hate to waste a log so I tried a quickie using a chainsaw and 1” bench chisel almost exclusively. Then, I set him on fire. After spanking him with a flap wheel I realized I burnt him too long because I did not want to sand off all the tool marks. He’s a little darker than I intended. Live and learn.

I'm wondering - where your inspiration came from for that last Marq?

Aloha, you're too funny. I was thinking the same thing. That's where I get my inspiration too.

Aloha- very inspirational and a work of art without question. It took me a while to go back and find this photo on the thread of Atomic Mess. I believe this is what planted the seed for my dramatic exaggeration...then again, maybe not. Hope everyone had a grand holiday!

I'm not sure which is cooler,
The carve or the grotto.

See, less wood is more.
It' funny like that.

Also,
How'd you get the Tiki to stay still so long,
to take that waterfall pic???

Thanks everyone! That one was fun.
Will - you have to get out early while they're still grogy...tikis aren't fully awake until about noon.
The weather is very mild here and I hope to get some stuff roughed out today.
