Here's the next one... I'll try and post some step-by step pics... It's a 6' palm log split in half.. planning on twin marq's. I made an eye/nose template for this one so all four sets would look the same. So far I've split thelog, debarked, sanded, drawn a center line and drawn out the rough outline. About 2 hours in.. the real work still to come... feeling a cold settling in so this one may take a while.

WHOA! Looks like you'll be busy for a while there DB. If you cut those deep, I think they'll look great. Hope you feel better soon. I hear sawdust cures the common cold.....

Yeah, I can't wait to see a pile of sawdust standing next to those twins (or is it quadruplets?). They just look like a couple logs right now, but I'm sure that will chage soon.

You can't miss with a layout that looks that good.

Those look like they'd go great flanking a doorway, maybe with the top of the Tikis set flush with the top of the door with a lintel piece across the top? I don't know of any Marquesan lintel carvings, but maybe a Tapa cloth covered lintel or a wood one with Tapa designs carved into or painted on it?

Loki... thanks! I'm workin on it! Stayed home sick from work today... tried to rest but the marq kept calling to me...

Gman... trying to stay true and "GO DEEP!" We'll see about the sawdust... I was out there today, "takin the medicine".

AA,Ben...thanks for the encouragement!

Freddie... I like that idea! I have been planning to put them on the wall on either side of the rack for the pool cues and balls, but hmmmm....

Rodeo... here's today's progress... should've been resting but couldn't keep away. I used the Arbortech min-grinder blade to make outline cuts, and then the Arbortech power chisel to move the wood. This log is really stringy!

Nice pieces in the works there, Dou...Cool design, too...there are a lot of those sorts of poles in the London Trader Vic's. And true dat-go deep. The deeper you can get those guide cuts the better. When you cut the features you'll find that the whole thing will take on a natural contour. I love things in pairs! Looks really regal to have a pair of tikis flanking a door!

Lookin good doubravsky, and those palm logs really do look stringy. What kind of palm is it? Make sure those arbortech chisels are sharp!. The ones I got had to be sharpened. They were polished and Looked sharp, but had a flat edge all the way across. That stringy log needs ultra sharp tools.
Did I hear you say you took the day off "Sick"?? Right, sick because you had no time to work on these 2 logs,, We Know (wink wink) Hopefully your boss doesn't frequent TC or you are in Trouble!!

Nice work in a short time Doubravsky...I just love that
Marq style....I did one as my first BIG tiki and wish I had
done a little better job...I'm sure I'll tackle another
one of these days. Yours is going to turn out great.

Bk, Gman... thanks! I thought about taking today off too, but it would be solely to get a day of carving in... so back to work I go. I'll try and get some in tonight.

Ben... you're right... the chisels are not very sharp. I sharpened the flat ones pretty well, but I use the rounded gouge a lot, and I'm afraid I'm not very good at sharpening yet. I spent some time last night working on them.... we'll see if I can tell a difference.

Conga thanks... I say go for another!

Maybe we could get a "hands on" sharpening lesson at Coontiki. Ben?...
