Thanks Lake, my Wisconsin Bruddah!
And thanks so much Clarita, I've missed you I really love that little
guy, and he's escaped the northern winters to a new home in California.

Might have something new this weekend...have been conducting research into how
much wood can be removed from a log chunk and still have something worthwhile left.

Thanks again, Conga for letting us adopt that little dude. He's got so much personality I'm just waitin' for him to say somethin'. My favorite tiki in the house right now!

You are most welcome Kahaka, and thank you. I'm thrilled that you
are pleased, and listen real close, he whispers.

Well, the second month of the year, a second carving starts to take
shape. This was gonna be a "tang" as was so astutely pointed out earlier.
But some wonderful Tangs have been posted lately, so I decided to dig and
dig and dig. This is the early result of that digging and the frustration
of my football team losing the big bowl.


and cleaned up a little bit today, pretty nice day "up north"


To me he sorta looks like a "baby" tiki, already a lot of attitude but
without the chompers.

Thanks Bad and Amate! I think he looks like a monkey too...from the side.
Some progress this week and I plan on fixing the crack over the weekend.
Gonna fill it with wood strips (learned from Mr. Benzart) and I'll show a
step by step for those who are interested.

Many thanks Tikilizard, always appreciate your kind remarks.
Thanks Ben, now I know what he looks like. He looks like me yelling
at the TV when my team failed to execute. Or like you said, the
coach giving his team a tongue lashing.
And Amate, with all due respects to Benzart, here is my little
crack repair tutorial.
Number one...find a few pieces of scrap that will fit into the
crack...

Then you whittle away until you have wedges that will fit into the
crack and stick out

Next step is to get all the pieces cut, glue them into the
crack and gently pound in as deep as possible


and finally, I used my hook knife to carve away the excess wood
to match the carving

And there you have it, the whole process took about 40 minutes.
It's actually less putsy than using wood filler and you will get a
much more uniform stain. Thanks for visiting, come again.

Nice conga! I first I kinda thought he looked like a bird. But the overall shape and feel is very monkey like. Don't know what you had in mind, but I do like it!

So the scraps you are using for crack repair - are they the scraps from the same carve? Or are you stockpiling a bunch of floor sweepings somewhere?

Thanks BigT...yea I am saving some wood chips if anybody needs some. I have
several large garbage bags full of various sizes. I sell them cheap...
authentic home carved chips for just $10 a bag...plus shipping of course.

And Surfintiki...got a big belly laugh out of that one...big laugh...big belly
too. I started to carve a lower denture this morning...but I hurt myself and
had to quit. Perhaps I will attempt some individual dental implants.
