Well its been a month and the tiki spent his time in the sweatbox. After spending a month drying out I dove into finishing him. Paint, burn and Poly. He's 6' tall and the skull is right at eye level, very ominous. So just in time for Halloween...

The chisels have been active. Pics soon.

Kino - that is one piece of wood. check out the progress shots to get a better idea of how I did it. I'm really looking forward to diving into the new logs but must wait for them to dry a little.

I resolve to find a new outlet for my creative ventures.

What does that mean? I don't know but it sounds good. Honestly, what I want to d is to try some different mediums. Clay and other sculpture mediums are intriguing me. I hope expand my knowledge with the help of friends and the many great artists on this site. That does not mean I want to give up wood carving, it simply means I want to expand my horizons... Happy New Year everyone.

For Grog. An update from the workshop.

This guy is still drying. Getting close - I've started doing some moko.


Started carving a 6' log that had started to rot. I sliced it in half and started on a project inspired by Wplugger. He has been carving lizards with shell eyes (and supplied me with 2 nice shells). Well I had to try and keep up so I roughed this guy out. The Palm was crap - very moist and stinking like ammonia. I didn't want to put much time into the carving if the wood was crap. It sat for a while to dry out and I have finished carving on it. Needs to be sanded but the wood was too soft. I have since given it a coat of Poly to stabilize the wood so I can sand it (I left the back side unfinished to allow the log to continue drying). It will have a very rough look, but I like it. Update soon.


This is another piece of the crappy log. I had this idea rolling around in my head and it made its way out. Started off as quick sketch then a drawing and then a carve. Here's the sketch.


A few chainsaw cuts later and I had it roughed out. Changes have been made since the photo. Teeth have been made, a base needs to be done, and I still need to tie a small float lamp. It needs to dry alot - right now he's very moldy. I really like this and will probably do another one with a better piece of wood - maybe mahogany??

very cool stuff. I love that lizard. I recently started a crocodile to go with several PNG things I'm working on. I could have used some of you ideas.
