Here are some shots of the tiki I made using the kiln dried construction grade wrong kinda of carvin wood. I found great pleasure applying the torch to this guy. I am actually kind of happy with the way he came out. I am calling him Po'opa'akiki.
Here is also a shot of the my other tiki with a stain and the torch applied. Still a few touch ups left but he is now considered part of the decor and no longer a project. He gets the name Makani.
Now I need to find me another log!
Cheers,
Chongolio

That guy on the bottom really did turn out nice after all....like a bit of old Tahiti. The top reminds me of a Kahiki coffee mug style.

Construction grade lumber, driftwood, palm, top of the line oak... whatever wood you use... a tiki is a tiki and its a great little work of art and culture... beautiful work with what you have Chongolio...
Mahalo for sharing!

Unfortunately I can't take credit for creating this monster... It was created by a hot rodder buddy of mine named Nacho (yeah, Nacho). It's presently sitting in my backyard and towers above my house. It's almost as tall as our next door neighbor's two story house. No, it's not exactly 'traditional' in the sense that it was created out of chicken wire, foam, and paint, but it's still a carving none the less.

If I had that in my backyard, the property owners would have an equally sizable mound in the back of thier britches.

hehehehe.... yeah, the neighbors haven't said a word about it yet (though i can't remember the last word they said to us... hmmmmm). the tiki is one of those was-once-temporary-but-since-has-become-permanent-until-otherwise-notfied fixtures to our backyard/fence/neighbors' view.

CARVING QUESTION:

Has anybody here carved Pine? I have a friend who is cutting down a LARGE Pine tree as I write this and I wan't to take logs from it however, I want to make sure it will be worth the trouble.

The tree is over 40 years old and the branches alone have diameters of about 16" and straight lengths up to 10 feet long. The main trunk is about 3 feet in diameter!

I've heard Pine can be harsh on the chisels. Is this true?

Leroy Schmaltz has used it often apparently.

I've used it. It's not hard on chisels. It's just harder than palm. It's considered a soft wood (as, I think, most lumber coming from evergreen/conifer trees are) so it's easier to cut than, say oak, maple, or walnut. It's free. It's a big diameter. Try it. Oh yeah- all those sort of scary grizzly bear, cougers, and what nots that are carved with chainsaws outside of most national parks are usually pine, too.

Uuuhhh...pine is terrible. Don't touch it under any circumstance. Call a professional to rid you of this dangerous medium. That would be me. Or, more directly put, if you don't want it, I might. Thanks.

Tikifille, there's plenty for everyone. There's literally a mountain of pine logs in my buddys front yard now. He had a 40 year old tree cut down and it was HUGE. I'm going by there tonight to pick up as many logs as I can fit in my truck. And believe me, it won't even look like I touched the pile at all...
