Hairball #2 is done.
It's hard to show detail in pics
of tall thin stuff.
After they dry I will give them color
& glaze rub to make the detail pop.





They are kinda the same but different.
As shown here by the lovely & talented
6 ft tall Aloha Station.

Nice hairball--and I don't get to say that very often.

The one in the middle could use a little more carving but the 2 outside ones are perfect!
What's the purpose of the pointed base?

Just like Swizzle said, your last 2 pieces are fantastic. I love rootball tikis and yours are one of the best I have seen.

It's just a base to stand on.
I really feel like Tikis should be looked up to.
I always want them as tall as the wood is.
I did have to cut them to 7&1/2 ft
to get them in my house & trim the base &
hollowed out the back to lighten them up.

So now I'm working on a pendant.
It's kinda big but its a birthday prez for
a guy that bar tends in a Tiki Bar.
He's a wild man, I'm sure he can pull it off.
I'll make it paper thin so it'll be light.
