Well done Brad. You did fine work considering you only had a partial picture as your model. What type of wood and how tall is it? Before you give it to your Bro, get your picture taken with it and post here. Oh, and let's get together and share some ideas soon.



Wish I'd thought of getting in a picture with it! Oh well, I took it to my brother last night and he seemed to like it. He's not far, so maybe I'll get a few more shots of it.

The wood is Catalpa (very common around here). It has white sapwood and walnut-looking heartwood, so I stained the whole thing dark walnut. It's only about 30 inches tall.

I finally bought some GOOD chisels for this one; a shallow gouge (#4 I think) a V-parting chisel, and a couple #1, single and double bevel. MAN that makes a big difference!!

Thanks everybody for the kind words. I still have NO idea what I'm doing, but am having a blast figuring it out!

Looks excellent for knowing what you're doing. I like the way the grain came out, in the eyes especially.

Those carvings have so much charisma. You & 8 ft. are going to put Kansas City on the map - tikiwise.

Catalpa wood, again. 30 inches tall. Meant to finish this one before Thanksgiving but the weather slowed me down a month.

As always for me, it starts with a photo in BOT:











I think they're getting better, so I'm gonna keep trying.

Nice deep cuts. Looks GREAT. Nice n smooth, you really captured it all. That Catalpa wood seems to work real well, looks a little green, but didn't crack, I love when that happens.

Yeah surfintiki, I just got lucky on the wood. Used what I had. It's from a tree I helped cut up on an adjacent vacant lot. Catalpa has really good stability, I found out. Here's more:

Thanks for the kind words!

Whoa, Silverline! What a step up. This one is so deep and defined - and the wood is really beautiful. You and Onatiki must have telepathy, both working on the same tiki at the same time. Funny how different each carver's interpretations are. Both unique and totally killer! I really like this one!

WOW! I'd be proud to be the papa of that baby! You really are advancing several grades between carvings. This is one in BOT that I have also thought about doing. Great choice and fantastic result! See you soon.

Silverline,

For a guy who says "I don't know what I'm doing, but I am having fun"...you sure seem to have a good idea how to get it done! Your Marq is top shelf. The wood is beautiful and your carving is terrific. Congratulations on creating a most excellent carving.

-Gman
