So you think I've been slackin' - well I have and I haven't! Many of you know that I have the habit of whittling on small pieces of wood to keep occupied. I often carry them around in my pocket and fondle them whenever I can. There's something about the fell of the wood and sharp cuts that intrigue me. Here are some of my "Pocket" tikis - soon to be pendants (just need to be sanded and clear coated)...

Tang - 2.75" tall


Moai - 2.5" tall


Lono - 6" tall


I have some other larger pieces in the works but time has kept me out of the garage. More to come soon.

Very nice!!! If that's what a little slacking produces, I think I'll do some myself.

godz - I have the assorted tools but these small pieces are usually carved using either the hook knife or an Xacto. I like the Xacto because the blades are cheap, sharp and thin. Palm chisels are fun to use on the small stuff, but I've had some experiences that turned me off of them. Rotary tools are fun but a little awkward to carry around - the hook knife blade can be tucked into the handle and fits nicely in the pocket.

Aloha, I guess that's a True BenzArt piece

Really cool though I can't say I relish the thought of being carried around in your pocket (Thanks Al, ()&*^). Cool stuff though as Usual, your stuff is clean and crisp. Amazing what a couple knife blades can do in the hands of the right person.

Is that a Tiki in your pocket or...

lol, very cool carvings. Gives me the itch to get back into it, shop space would be so nice. (my last keyboard got filled with wood chips)

I like the fact you're not sanding them down, I really think the angles add alot to them, the Moai has got so much character.

Badd Tiki - I like unfinished look as well. The blades cut so nice that sanding is only done if I need to round something off. The fact that I hate sanding has something to do with it too.

Still plugging away at the small stuff. Here are some more small bits that are unfinished. I'll finish the batch soon by coating them with lacquer.


I'm real happy with all of these - especially the skull. I have a thing in head that I want to be able to carve a skull without using a reference. So you will see more of those.
