That wood grain effect on the teeth of your first tiki is amazing. Excellent job on both!

Hip! Good looking Tiki and Moai.

Yours was inspiring; am in process of drying a couple pieces of pine to try first Tiki carving, this winter.

20CM Maoi for my Tiki Bar!

Not yet sanded or stained.

Considering painting it in fluorescent paint to glow up under my black light.

Named 'Gabe' after Sylvester Stalone in Cliffhanger.



Carved with palm chisels, finished with Oak wood stain.

That was your first? Wow! It is great! How I wish I could do that great on my first tiki too.

My brother and I were planning to make one. We want to add it in our tropical inspired backyard. We already have some tiki torches in it which we have got last year from
http://www.buytikitorches.com and we think having those tiki faces will add more beauty in our yard. Hope we can do as good as yours.

yo brah, nice work! I posted one of my latest carvings here and I have gotten a lot of recommendations to take it deeper! I am not excited about it but I broke out the chisels and have started to retool my entire carving.

I had an ideal for adding some tattoo style etcings to the face. I do have plenty of experience with refinishing furniture never with a wax finish, only stain and french polish. I don't want stain to absorb very deep I want it to sit on top so I can carve with exacto knife and show lighter grain below.
Could you take a second and tell me about the wax finish on ur moi? Looks fantastic
very nice satiny finish. Edges and curves get easily lost in gloss. I am quick study so only need the nuts and bolts of what to do to save typing. Thanks

Dermdude,

I fine sanded the remaining chisel marks then coated the Moai with Mahogany wood stain. The wax finish was added with a lint free cloth, 2-3 coats then buffed. Unfortunately now riddled with wood worm! Cheers.
