Great progress on the lono. It has your style. The toes are laid out really nice and even that must have taken a long time to get them that way.

Hey double D, you've really got some great stuff going on !
I like to see when a carver has more than one piece going at at a time. Good to see you crankin' out the carvings. Keep it coming! Lookin' GREAT!

Hey dave! great looking tikis! that hut pole is looking really good! - the mouth/teeth/tongue is really tight and those eyes are going to pop! VERY nice layout. For the small parting tool - remember it's not the size that counts. You can also use your straight/flat chisels and go back and forth on the sides of the headdress. Takes longer, but does the same thing. Then, put your parting tool down inbetween and even it out a bit at the bottom.

That lono is looking HOT too - great bod on that badboy...MEOW!!!

Great looking tikis and great progress shots! thanks!

Duddy... thanx... the big one has been quite a learning experience... so far so good.

8 ft... thanx. I'm too ADHD to work on one piece at a time... I get impatient and the quality suffers. This way, when I get frustrated with one, I switch and work on another.

Polynesiac.. wow.. thanks for the kind words. I though about doing the flat chisel.. but there's a lot of headdress! I've been using the foredom/wecheer recip carver on the headress detail.. gives a uniform depth and nice clean cut. But the only size I have is the 3/8". Just ordered an adapter to use some other flexcuts, which should let me use my 5/8". Hopefully that will do the trick.

To all the encouragement from everyone... thanks! You guys keep me going, especially when something doesn't work and I get convinced i'm a hack! Thanks a million!

Last update for the weekend... I'm off to the big island for 4 days (cry for me...). Went and bought a Stubai 5/8" parting tool to make the headress lines a little bigger....





Here's the plan for the rest of the wood... extend the headress and maybe put some sort of inlay on the diamond area in the middle.

Dave you are kicking butt on your recent carvings, looking like the work of an
"old master." This latest one will be really nice when he's finished. Now,
have a good time on vacation and steal some ideas for your next carving!
