Crazy, cool carvings as always. I like your use of that red stain - makes for a good contrast & pops right out at ya.

I'm thinking wow, crazy, wild and so much fun to see. You work so hard. Clay is hard enough but you do it with wood. You are terrific. See you soon, Wendy

Thanks H-10, sorry we couldn't connect on your visit to PDX. MDM I'm not touching your comment with a 10 foot pole. T-Skip and FTLOT thanks I really like the way that piece of doug fir looks after painting, the grain is really nice, and yes John the frogs are hatching. (Saw a beaver in the pond this morning, my first ever sighting of one since I moved here in 95) Thank you Wendy, Advil is a part of my diet and I'll leave Grog to come up with something for "you do it with wood."

Almost done with these two. Added yellow highlights and teak oil to "La Tsunami"


Also added another coat of red and clear to "Maka Puke"

A good steel woolin' to tone him down a notch will have him complete for the Hale Pele event here in Portland next month. In the background is an old pal of mine "Croquet Ray"

Thanks Skoo, I am looking forward to Caliente and hope to see you there. Also trying to get into Oasis, should know soon. MDM, he may look all sophisticated but he swings a mean mallet, and Will I would be dangerous if I had a lesson or two about the rules of carving. Thanks for the comments, time to start a new batch.

I don't know why, but I seem to always forget to look at the carving threads. I just went through your whole thread from where I last left off and am picking up brain matter off the floor. DAMN CY. Such incredible stuff! A lot of your work reminds me of Basil Wolverton, but in real life 3D! In fact the way you name your tikis it reminds me of those "ugly cards" from the 60's which both Basil and Wally Wood worked on.

From your shot of Mt Hood in one of your older pics it looks like you are pretty darn close to my neck of the woods in Sandy.

Thanks for talking about the Hale Pale event I did not know about it, I will have to try and make it there I have yet to get to any kind of tiki event so it would be my first. I would love to see your mind blowing work in person.

And "Croquet Ray" made me quite literally laugh out loud. Too awesome.

McTiki and pjc I always check the status of your progress, which impresses and inspires so thanks for the comments! TigerTail I have been following your thread and know that a space that is comfy to create in is essential. Electricity good!
Tiki Caliente is nearing and I want to bring new work that did not attend last year's event so completing older projects is in order.
Finished "Orin" mostly detailing on the shade.


"Maka Puke" got a final coat of clear marine varnish.

Also dyed the red rope in the base but it turned out pink. So be it as I'm burned out on this one.

I added a little depth to "Barry" by adding whitewash to his eyes and teeth and painting/wiping ebony stain in the deeper portions.

Thanks to TikiSkip for adding much needed color and mood to our "Mana Cave!"
