Damn Hula, that was quick! I just gave you that log yesterday. Looking pretty good there. Regarding the mouth, you can probably use a power tool (like a chainsaw) to make easier and save you time.

As previously stated, I'm drinking that pumpkin beer to help me grow some balls and post pics of my first carving. So far it's not working.

Ok. I have been away from this site for a while now chiseling away getting ready for an art show here in Jacksonville Beach FL that's coming up. Have managed to carve 11 tiki's so far....even (2) 6ft rootballers. Will get pics on soon........ And yes they are "FLORIDA STYLE". I do live in Florida, so if you have to make a comment about it go ahead. I think the whole "style saga" is a funny, but rather insignificant issue anyway........it's all about "art", so who cares. Longboard, shortboard?????? The saga's never end, we just deal with it. They are only created by the people who have nothing else to worry about and that are insecure about their own abilities.....I like ALL styles.

I also have a question for some of you carvers, although I think I might have a solution to the problem already....."MOLD" on wet logs appearing after you finish carving.....How do YOU deal with it. Have ran across a few really wet ones that seem to creep mold, but I zap it with mixture of bleach and a fungacide, then Thompsonize the hell out of it. Seems to be working so far. Any other suggestions besides "not to carve wet logs anymore"????? Also "debarking a log. Came across a cool little tool called a "Log Wizard". Anybody tried one of these contraptions that fit on the end of a chainsaw bar and acts as a planer yet??? Have been using a "Lancelot" on an angle grinder, but it's still hard work. Info on how the "Log Wizard" perfoms if you have would be cool......Easiest logs to debark?????

Enough for now....."Freak"

yes wet logs suck! i usually spray em with a bleach/water mixture. As far as peeling a log...I haven't found a easy way yet. I do it all by hand, no power tools. When I would carve mexican fan palm I woud use a blade and thats it. It's done by hand at Ocianic Arts too. No real trick. good luck

aloha

The website is messed up. I don't know what the heck happened. How weird. I will check with my friend, Lou, who understands these things, (sometimes).

MrTikibar, the website isn't pointing to your main page. http://home.europa.com/~forsythe/welcome.htm
That's about all I could figure. BTW that party looked like a really good time!

Just trying to help!

Turbogod,
I was having a lot of computer problems and finally had to reinstall Windows. I think this must have something to do with the website bug. Thanks for your input. Also Thanks braddah JT.
