Fink this one is AMAZING! that turtle and tapa cloth are super clean and fit the tiki perfectly. You have quite a talent for removing the non-tiki excess wood. Every part of this tiki is excellent.

Thanks for sharing your creations and giving us the updated pictures.



WOW...still amazed...

Of course you can make one! Turtles are for everybody. Just show everyone the pics.

Thanks again everyone, you've all been terrific.

I'm carving cherry wood for the first time. I like it. It's a bit harder than the mohagany that I just used, but my knives are sharp and it carves up well.

Here is the beginging of a tiki I'm making for Polynesian Pop. He wants one in the style of my #3. I'm curious to find out how detailed I can go with the cherry.



The mysterious black shadow you see is the tail of one of my cats. He wouldn't leave me alone this morning.

Hey Fink, another great start. You will find why cherry is considered among the premier carving woods. You will be able to put as fine of detail as you wish, it is Hard carving but very precise and should fit your carving style perfectly. Have fun!

Another great start. I'm working with a piece of cherry right now as well. The wood carves great and holds a lot of detail. Ill post post pics soon.

I see another gret tiki forming. Do you always start with the mouth and go from there? I think that the mouth kinda sets the tone for the rest.
Cant wait to see more.
