The Monk is melting.
That was some kind of log you started with.
I don't get many around here like that.
I bet you could have mulched most of the forest
you showed us in that last pic with what you
cut off.
Fir, does it crush & break instead of cut if your
chisels are dull?

Thanks my Las Vegas amigo. Very good amate, but I have been giving him a steady diet of CHAINSAW. Will you are right I made a bunch of mulch out of that log, first taking two big slabs front and back with my biggest saw. The fir is rather fibrous and will chunk off if your tools are not sharp, but does not splinter like the cedar does. For some reason the chain on the saw makes a really cool sound when taking off and smoothing material from the fir. It's also stronger than cedar, not as brittle.

Forgive me Hawaiian tiki gods, "Lonnie" just happened. He is being built from walnut, the best wood by far that I have ever used.

Still a ways to go.

The second best wood I have hacked on is this piece of mahogany, a gift from AlohaStation. Still waiting for a 7 foot chunk.

I used a trick from Will carve to enhance the features of "Orville", I brushed a mixture of varnish with black and brown dye into the deep portions of this carving, then wiped away the high spots.

Also made a Rube Goldberg type contraption from left over copper pipe and connectors to display it.

This piece of bass wood will be the top piece for a yet to be determined larger chunk.

Also added a bit of tallness to "Monk" by cutting more base out.

Your stuff is tough to describe. I can't even explain to myself what it is I dig about it, but I can't stop digging it.

Danger is my business Jeff. Thanks Skoo and Will, I admire you guys and grab motivation from your comments. Professor my style is hard to pinpoint even for me but glad you like. You would have a blast hanging out when I vend and watching and listening to the people's reactions. .A lot of picture taking, head scratching, omgs, and most with a confused, slightly scared smile on their faces. Priceless.

Wow, you've been up to good again! The oar/paddle turned out great and I love the stand, that will develop a nice patina. I notice some 'shrooms behind Lonnie. Remember that there are old mushroom hunters and bold mushroom hunters, but there are no old, bold mushroom hunters

No worries Jon, I have a few twists and turns in plan to unintentionally ruin a beautiful, traditional Hawaiian design. Since Lono is god of peace, fertility and music I think he would understand. Glad you get it tigertail7s, I've been keeping up with your Egyptian project with great interest. Good eye Mike, and you may be right- I am getting a bit long in the tooth to be rupin' around on all fours in the middle of the night, siftin' through the cow dung for dem psychedelic delights. Here is another shot.

About three years ago I sold a few tikis to a couple that shipped them to the Philippines for their bed and breakfast. I contacted the Tiki Beach Resort in Davao to find out that they are south of the devastation and graciously sent back pictures.
"Legba" has a voodoo theme.

"Mehevi" is based on the Don Tiki album's idol.

Lonnie is looking good. Traditional with a Cy twist.
I just started on a piece of mahogany as well. So far, I'm really enjoying it.
