Thanks Mike!

I finally got around to doing some more carving on #5 this weekend at the Tiki Oasis group chop.






He's not done yet but getting close now.

Was a great time carving at Oasis and meeting everyone.

Looking good for sure . This thread actually inspired me to drag out a stump and start carving a little and sanding more . I like the shiny gloss clear coat .

I need to I also noticed were on 3 of the same internet message boards . . . great minds and all that .

Thanks everyone the stump Ku table is really taking shape now. This place is really an inspiration.

So we had a yard sale today at the house and I decided last night that I would knock out a quick little tiki to sell cheap at the sale. So I took an hour and carved my first mask.







Real simple and kind of cheesy but it sold for $20 real quick to some really appreciative tiki fans.

Also sold #4 at the yard sale!

Not a lot of progress since last I posted. #5 is still unfinished. But I did take the time to try my hand at a serious attempt at a mask ( I know that last one was seriously lacking ).









this was my warm up to get back into this, now to finish the stump Ku.

Got some good work in today






Got 1 coat of varnish on and then disaster happened







Yep a huge chunk of the bark ripped off while I was adjusting him on the sawhorse.



So now I have to wait till tomorrow when the varnish is dried to shave down more of the bark and try to salvage him, the look is totally different now.
