Will, Jon -thanks for checking in...
The Blue Man is 36”
The Menehune are 14” and 12” and the finished guy by the river is just over 8”.
I also started this third Menehune which is 10”.



Carving the Menehune have been rejuvenating and I’m having a lot of fun on these guys.
This little medallion has been another distraction…



This guy was inspired by…
a)Mate-mate
b)Xochipilli
c)That dude pictured on the Dos Equis label
d)All of the above

The correct answer is d

I have more traditional tiki inspired work in process and will update again shortly.

Thanks for looking in guys. Been mixing things up to stay motivated.
The slit drum is 27" and not hollowed out for practical use. Sounds like beating on a log. It took months to get around to finishing the outside. May have been years if I were to hollow in out.
The Ku is 29"

Conga,Jon,Cy – Appreciate the kinds words. Part of the fun is showing your work. It has just now started to green up a bit around here. Had I waited 2-3 weeks, the photos would have been much greener. I was going to that location anyway to view the Panstarrs Comet so I took some carvings along for a shoot.

The Moai Papa is complete at 11 inches tall.








The Ku is 29 inches and will remain rough since he will be outside. He will take up residence next to the Blue Man after I seal him.






I have made a dozen or so attempts at Mr. Ku now. It’s time to try some of the other Hawaiian styles with a couple of mini carves. Never having done these styles, I pulled a sketch off the internet for a guide. I have included those images to give the artist his due credit…



I got a little too aggresive with the chisel on the Lono and broke off a pig-tail ...I'll try again...

All great new stuff.
Glue & dowel that piece back & move on.
It'll be fine. That happens all the time.
No RBD.
Just be more careful next time.
Carving is invasive. stuff breaks.
Pics are knock outs too.
