Hewey, you are doing a great job with your carving. We need more pictures of your progression. Thanks for the great pictures of old cars. I love the teardrop picture.

Yay… finally got some tiki love happening for you. The big guy is still sitting there, but I’ve still been busy.

Here’s my awesome moai swap piece hanging with my Finky pendant and my Gman pendant.


Here’s an extremely quickly done hebel/AAC tiki. Done in a couple of hours, from a square block to finish, including paint time.

Before paint. I attacked it with the corner of the chisel to give it a rough look.


After paint. Paint was sprayed (spraycan) metallic gold (real thick), then a heap of black over the still wet gold. Turned out pretty cool actually


Close up


Last weekend, I picked up some Cocos Palm logs – one of my mechanic’s mates chopped em down. Yes, my mechanic is sourcing logs for me This one was done for my mum for mothers day. Went for a more traditional look (than my usual stuff), more her taste.

The log


Debarked with a flat chisel


Nudey log


Sketch out a design in marker pen.


Carve out the design, take a progress shot with the dog in the way.


Fully carved out


Burn it with a butane burner!


The design section burnt. It was turned upside down to get the flame into all the areas I needed (burner doesn’t work very well upside down)


Then whip out the sander to get it a bit smoother.


To give it some more character I used a small rounded chisel (a gouge) to take back the edges, and then gave the whole surface a light burning.


Then to finish it off some details with white paint, and some marine grade varnish.

Nice work, Hewey. I love the chisel marks. I always try so hard to sand them out and then I look at someone elses work (yours, for example) with chisel marks and have to ask myself, "why would I ever sand them out, they look so good!

Keep up the chisel smackin'!

4Wdtiki – thanks mate. The irony is it I put bugger all effort into it, and it came out pretty cool! I will be experimenting further with spraypaint effects on more tikis for sure.

Surf’n’turf – This was the first time I’ve ever gone for the chiselled look. It was too plain with the straight edges, and my girlfriend suggested I round off the corners as the sharp corners didn’t look any good. The chiselled off corners addressed the issue and gave it a nice traditional flavour.

Flynny – Nice ride. Here’s my soon to be sold daily driver:




On the weekend I will be checking out a reuse organisation. They have a warehouse where they sell all kinds of interesting industry offcuts for bugger all, and they also have an art gallery that only features works made from reused items. The exhibition they have at the moment is a tiki theme! Hopefully they will let me get some pics!

Man, don't you know when you turn a tiki upside down, they get all mad and pissy? The blood is supposed to rush to their brain and they are supposed to get all light headed and stuff but they Gots NO Brains and that makes peeps see that they have no brains and they get angry.
Nice finish too

It's been a while... anyway, here's a sneak peak of something I will be woking on for the Sydney hot rod show, and I've only got a week to get it done

One part tiki, one part frankenstein


There's some interesting stuff in this guy's future, but you'll just have to watch here for updates

Thanks guys. Over the weekend I got the log debarked, and bought some candy green paint. The candy will let the wood grain show through, so should be sweet. The idea is to get it nice and smooth so it can get some pinstripes on it.

It's just a log with no bark on it, so no pics at this stage
