Aloha, Kiegs. The Makita arrived today - mahalo! I know you're a "mostly chainsaw" guy, so I have to ask - do you do all your carvings with the chainsaw? These pieces seem a little delicate for that. Just curious...

Ken.... man.

Loss for words.


Those pieces are so tight. Love them both. The tiki one... the paint, the colors, the fur... perfect.

William's magic lives with you now... you have seriously arrived.

Man... they are so tight!

The sun is great! Sometimes you can't stress about things. When you do it is time to step back and stop thinking so hard. Come back later or another day. Then it just flows. Looks like that's what you did. Worked out perfect!

Thanks for stopping by... you inspired me tonight!

GROG Keigs says thanks and Keigs appreciates GROG'S compliments

Aarons Akua glad you got the saw. Most of my carvings are chainsaw but I do cheat with a router if the corners are to tight. The cat is all chainsaw the tiki,s mouth is router I wanted to step it down and could not do that with a chainsaw. I also studied a bunch on the bars and chains for the makita and found out that it is better to use 1/4 chain and sprocket on a dime and quarter tip. You can use 3/8 but it destroys the bar the links are longer and make the bar to hot. So at the moment I am killing my bar.

Lake thanks man glad I could inspire you. I am sure your weather is as bad probably worse than mine an it is hard to get motivated.

Revboo raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!! I have been trying to remember what drunken plans I made for August so email me so I can confirm those plans and start planning.... and about Mexico I'm game!!!!

Wow, Ken!

Excellent as always, Ken. Keep it up!

Sorry for the late reply it has been a crazy week lots of snow and cold weather, no power kind of sucked!!!
Hey Rodeo the bar is sweet I wont go back.
Johnnyp thanks the cat was fun and I was really happy with it.
Tedtiki my website is up just not running yet. At the moment I am adding photos and info. I hope to have it up soon. thanks again for the compliments.
here are a few more pictures. I carved this in a rotten cedar stump behind my house. It is not very good cause the stump was rotten and I could not reach it very well but it was fun. The last picture is the brother to the plaque in my last post.

Thanks Benz I will. Its been a while since I carved a totem and I needed to make a few Christmas presents for some people so present #1 done. He is 4ft 4 inches tall cedar. I tried some Benzart ears but the wood chipped away and did not hold the detail so I carved it away. Also tried some BK moai base painting. That did not turn out as good as I wanted either. But oh well the picture turned out good

morei moai !

I thought the ears looked great. That carving in the stump must have been hard to do since you can't roll it around and take cuts from different angles.

JP thanks the biggest problem with the stump was, I was too short and kept falling off the chair I was standing on to carve it.
Freddie B damn you found out guess I will have to give it to my father inlaw instead and think of something else for you like this super rare one of a kind (unless I print more) windows 98 paint shop drawing I did back in 2003 probably one of my best 98 windows paint shop drawings. Hope you have a place of honor to hang it. Feel free to print it out and enjoy it in your home for many years to come. Merry Christmas
