Thanks guys!

I am off for ten days starting Friday...Ohhhh yeahhhhh!!! I bought a quarter tip bar which I can trade off and on with my sprocket tip bar on my primary saw (both run 3/8 pitch chain) and I also bought another saw to run a dime tip bar and 1/4 pitch chain. There will be some changes here at the Gman camp. New stuff, new carves, new directions. Onward and upward!!!

I wouldn't have a clue what all that saw stuff means, but I'm hoping the "10 days off" bit means 10 days where you won't be doing your regular gig, and instead will be getting this new Maori piece finished. I'm having 4 days off, and I can guarantee I won't be carving on my days off!

I was just thinking the very same thing; must be 'big-boy' chainsaw talk..?

Starting tomorrow I have about 8 days off & intend to drive several hundred miles away from my workshop; phew!

Cant wait to see what's left standing once the dust settles Gman! Enjoy your break.

Paipo and Tama,

Yes, that is "Big Boy" chainsaw talk. Sorry to confuse....

A chainsaw bar is the long "blade" that the chain runs on. For the last...well, forever, I've stuck with a standard commercial grade sprocket tip bar with the nose being about the diameter of a soup can. All of my saws have run standard bars in the past because when they weren't carving, they were working saws. Using a standard bar for carving is kinda like trying to do fine work with a burr the size of a baseball bat. What I bought now are two carving bars (and another powerhead) that have tips much smaller, like dime and quarter (coin) sized. With these it will be more like working with the tip of my index finger or thumb instead of a baseball bat. What does it all mean? A lot more fun for me and it will let me do tiki rough outs with the saws that I couldn't do before. I also saw a few boxes from Treeline and other places so it looks like the Doc has some new handpieces and chisels ready for my stocking. Happy Happy!

Additionally, I hope to be back doing large chainsaw carvings of wildlife and other subjects for the general market. Don't worry, I won't post them here and water down the TC content.....

-Gman

Yeah; just make sure you hang one of your pendants around its neck or you might be 'moderated' out of here!

*Sounds like Mrs Claus is right on time!

Naw mates, I won't post anything but traditional designs here on TC. No tiki pop or wildlife. I'll post links to my carving threads on the other forums when I get them set and going. You can come and visit me there. That would be nice.

Gman! Looks like you got the whole family there for a nice Xmas. Holiday wishes to you and yours!

SurfnTurf - Where you been? How is the gable and all that work you were doing? I would love to see more of that project. As for me, this is my last seasoned cedar log.



Slow goin', but making some progress--will post update soon. Also got my first bone carve done (maybe won't post that one-I'll wait for bone carve #2 if it's any better.) Also gotta 6' moku faced cat started and also started a 3' long marquesan canoe with 5 lil' marqs in it--gotta get that stuff posted soon too. I've kinda' got too much going on at the same time-typical for me.

You very lucky tiki carving man

How about posting "non tiki" carvings in "beyond"? Im going to start one for my non-tiki pinstriping, doesnt belong in creating tiki, but folks can still see it.
