How is this tiki coming? So far it looks just like the picture you drew. I always screw up on a cut and it comes out way different than the drawing?

Hey JP. The tiki is sitting alone on the workbench. I havent had time to have another go, but 2 jobs and 6 day weeks will do that to ya.

Yeh, so far its like the sketch. But as I said, I sketched it directly onto the wood before I sketched it onto the paper.

I hope to get in some more carving before christmas, but im not sure if I will. Ill post pics if I do.

Had a bad day at work, so I decided to come home and have at the tiki with a chissel. Its looking like a tiki finally. I still got a lot of work, as I want to give it a really smooth sanded finish. So far all the work has been completed with flat chissels, as that is all I have.

Thanks for the support people. Havent had time for any work on this fella. I did get some decent pastels and some sketch pads for christmas, so you might see some pastels in the future.

Yeh, the bug is stayin for a while. No wagon for me. Gonna play with the bug, but not quite as much as that volksrod. Very cool though Im tossing up how long I keep the bug with how much I play with it. And how much money I want to waste. haha. I already put in a new wheel (an old 60s style wheel). Hopefully its gonna get a tiki horn push. Itll look better than the hole its currently got.

Yeh, I know, its been a while. Ive done a little more chissel work, and have started on the sanding. It was gonna get the totally clean look, but its got some cool character lines down the side from where my mate trimmed it with a chain saw from the main section of wood. Same with the upper surface finish (like on the left arm). Im gonna need to get a dremmel or similar to finish in the tight gaps where its a bit tight to get sandpaper in there.

Probably gonna go with a clearish stain.

Hewey, it's coming along great. If you figure out a easy way to sand to tight spots let us know.

JP

Still working on this one. But I got the next one lined up already...

I got a 2.5 foot long chunk of cocos palm. This one is gonna go to my wahine's uncle, for around their pool. Its a bit daunting, the piece of wood is so big to anything I tried yet. Here goes nothin...
