WoW! Been awhile since I've posted anything! Everybody continues to knock out some very nice work! I've been following along, just not participating!

I am slowly but surely knocking chunks off of this latest Ku. He's about 6 foot including his pedestal.

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Thanks guys .... I'm sure not breaking any tiki carving speed records with this guy! He's a 'marathon' tiki as opposed to a 'sprint' tiki!!

Got some more wood removal done .....




Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Thanks guys! He's finally done! I went with the distressed gray stain to try and get the look of those two Hawaiian tikis that are photographed a lot. Those two are gray from weathering so this is my attempt at a shortcut!

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Captain Jack... Excellent carve! Love the finish too... This guy would fit right in on the Isle of Refuge! Very nice Kona Style Ku!

I suppose I could update my thread every now and then! Haven't been busting out many tikis lately but do have a couple items I can post ...

Had this really dry palm log in the pile that was intended to be a tall skinny Lono. After stripping it down it was very crumbly and dry so not worth the effort to try and make a detailed tiki out of .... so I carved my skinny version of "Paul!" .... if you aren't familiar with Paul, he is a foul mouthed alien from a movie a couple years ago ..




I did strip down another solid log that is going to be the pedestal Kanaloa that goes with the pedestal Ku I did before. It is roughed out and I started some of the headress. This will be the same gray stain as the Ku. Got a lot of camping to do in the 'new to me' motorhome but I hope to get this one finished in a few weeks.



Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!


... oh, here's the new toy! Just drove it back from Georgia (to California) this week ... thinking of painting a couple tikis on the back!
