hang10 ideas usually come from my lower backside region. pj/MDM I thought having a piece lying on his back would be different. He is in my garage now and I have to tell you he creeps me out whenever I walk past him. He has a lot of empty stomach/chest area so I may add another guy rising from there, but will work out the head first. I will get busy to finish these Atomic Mess. I am looking forward to doing the Gresham Artwalk this Saturday and then Tiki Kon Aug. 4.

Empty space like a Kavakava?

It took up most of my weekend but am making progress on this one. I will bring this and a few other pieces to Tiki Kon this Saturday and work on whatever feels right.


I'm hoping Will Carve will give me extra credit cause digging all the way through the ribs took forever. I gave the bottom guy 4 sets of teeth for extra bite.

Ya know,
I was thinking as I scrolled down the page,
"Now that's what I call, loosing the shape of the log"
Fantastic.
You ain't skeered.

Cy that last one is killer! The time you must spend sanding these is mind boggling.

Mahalo for sharing

Glad you like fellas, you keep me motivated with your encouragement. I think it was Crazy Al that said if you use your chisels correctly you can by-pass much of the sanding and I took that as great advise from a master. There is hardly any sanding on this piece, just a bit with a grinder then one of those mouse shaped things, a tip from Buzzy.

Thought you might enjoy some pics from Tiki Kon this weekend in Portland. Joe from Elroy set me up with a beautiful place to work and although there was record heat I had a blast carving and talking to mostly local tiki people.

Cy master. (Thanks Hang10)

My view of the Columbia.

Portland is the rose city.

Here is looking east towards Mt. Hood. I was able to sell enough to make it worthwhile and am looking forward to next year. Mahalo.

Thanks Big T, glad that things are getting closer to normal for you. Armed with extra credit from Will Carve I toiled to complete "The Cult of Tiki"

I mixed orange and brown dye in some poly I had then clear coated.
Also added detailing on the base.

I started "Ashton" at the Tiki Kon event here a few weekends ago.

He is an ashtray with a compartment for "stuff" in the back.

"Tre" is a piece I did a while back but never photographed


He is so named because he has three sides
