thank you Ben, fez ape, sam gambino, tikitikiboom,tikitammy,Hewey, Mooneytiki for all the props.

Sorry i have not been on in a long time, school and work is eating up too much of my time. hopfully i can carve more, as right now it's like months between carvings. well i did manage to carve a bit over spring break.







this guy i'm having troublewith the polyurthane setting up. i think the wood has too much oil in it or something, because the poly seems a little tacky still.

Octane, Welcome back. REally Nice stuff, I'm really impressed, really sweet!The poly thing is possibly the cool temp, when poly's Will Not setup. That or a second coat was applied before the first coat dried. Nice wood on the tacky one.

thanks Ben, the wood on the guy that was still tacky is cocobolo (sp?).

Thank BK, that damn school and work keeps the chisels in the work bench.

thanks foamy, i had not realized i had been gone for so long, then i saw that my page was like on page 12 or something.

hopefully i can carve more and hang out on TC again.

Dig it!
Octane, you never want to sell. I'd like to talk you out of that tiki in the second to last image. Dig?

Bumping bruddah Octane up for a look see...

A shame so much of his early work is missing, a very talented carver.

Whoa....this is a tasty way to start the day. Some major eye candy here.....delicious!

I really wished those early pictures were still around as well.

Thanks for bumping this up.
