Here is carving #5. This one is not a tiki, but it is an island style log drum. Thought I do one in palm for practice before I do one in hardwood later. It's 4 feet long by 9 inches around.








Starting to hollow it out. Will do some more tomorrow and post more pics later.

Thanks for looking!!
Aloha

Wow! That's gonna be killer! Cool project idea. I can't wait to see some more. I'm digging the scales!

Yep, thats going to be a Super nice slit drum. Do you use a chainsaw for any of your carving? One here would speed it up tremendously and you only need to be a little careful. Tape depth markers on the bar of the chain saw so you don't go too deep and you'll be dome before you can resharpen your long gouge.
Looks great.

Thanks Benz!!
I hollowed it with the hand chisels. No chainsaw for me.

It really didn't take too long. Only a couple of hours. Then I sanded inside as far as I could reach with my big fat fingers. Might work on it some more today. We'll see.

A drum with only chisels, my hat is off to you!!! I've done two and both were with use of a chainsaw and that even took a while. I like the scales and the decorative ends. You do really precise work!

Number 5 is done!!! The weather has cooperated finally. Nice, warm and 80 degrees today. So unlike the nasty wind and rain that poured all weekend.

As always, thanks for looking!!
