NICE job on those last ones too Surfer. I like the stain and finish too. That Basswood is a 2 faced wood. Carves easily and finishes nicely but you have to sand it a lot to remove nicks and dents.
Nice work.(or is it Play?)

This was cherry wood again, still got a little left. I am so jealous of the exotic stuff benzart is coming up with. Any tips where to look for these tasty morsels?

Cool! I can alomost hear the mystical music byte from the Brady Bunch when they find forbidden tiki. I have a bunch of Palm trunks from 3' to 20' that fell during a huge storm. I know I should let them dry out (they weeped liquid in my garage for 2 weeks so far!) How long until they can turn into tiki? How do I get started. I'll practice on a small one. Is there a site with step by step instruction on tiki carving?

Great design & finish, and I love the detailing, especially that close-up shot of the hands. Thanks for posting! What's next?

Excellent tiki!

I agree with Benz that Basswood is a 2-headed beast. Your skills have exceeded your material. You may find a new wood rewarding.

Thanks youz guyz. He's about 24" tall. And yup, time for a new wood, I got a biggie given to me by a guy in maine, who wasn't sure what it is, my guess is oak!? Twill be my first large guy. It's taken me days to de-bark it. Doesn't peel right off like other stuff I've done. Chiseled it til my hands bled. 4 1/2" grinder with sand wheel grinded it til the basement filled up with sawdust. Friggin's gotta be a better way!

Try a good old fashioned Draw knife. More barkcomes off with less work and the log is Smoothe all around. Also it is not imbedded with chisel killing grit from the grinder.
You can really work up a sweat with the drawknife, but Much lass than the other methods.
How dry is the log", If it's Oak and still fresh, be careful of splitting. Looks like fun.

Aloha! Here's the outcome on my unidentifed piece of wood. My guess, is it's maple. It's got some interesting grain. He's just over 4'.

I spent way less time sanding than I wished too. I need more power tools! mo' money, mo' money

He's now residing in my local surf shop. Should bring up the waves.
