I second that request, Ben!!!!


Here's today's update. Got much of the chiseling done on #1. My daughter says "it's me! that tiki looks like me!"



I think I need to do something between the bottom of the nose and the mouth..I spaced it out a little far between nose and mouth. I'm gonna try going deeper in in a "V" shape, and I'll probably add tattoing on the nose/ nostril area. Oh, and the desing on the top of the head, too.

Any other suggestions beforeI start cleaning it up?

Here's the weekend update... twin #1 is finished. I burned the dark spots, stained the rest with Minwax Golden Pecan, and one coat of lacquer.




Time to start twin #2!

Nice! You're right - that would make a killer pool cue rack.

Dang DB! You're cruising now. I like it. Are you going to do #2 the same way or change it up a bit? Those hot rod tools are a real help aye?

Nice work on that one. And a really cool old-school Santa Cruz behind it!

Doubravsky-
Sweet little girl, before you know it she will be taller than that fine Tiki you just finished. I really like the way you finished it also.
What tools are you using on those twins??

Loki... thanks... I like the golden pecan stain with the lacquer combo. Gives it a nice tone...

Aaron.. thanks! I'll post a pic of them in place when the youngertwin gets done..

G... the plan is for identical twins.. they should be pretty close (hopefully). Yup, that power chisel really speeds things up!

Turbo... you like the board eh? I've had that sucker since about 1985.. (shows how much I use it since the deck is still unbroken!)

Moon.. thanks! She is a great girl. I used.. 1) chainsaw to split the log, 2) arbortech power chisel to carve most of it, with a minigrinder to cut the guide lines.

DB, Looks great. Looks like you are getting along with that power chisel pretty well. It Really can move some wood can't it? Nice.

That two tone look is growing on me a lot! I need to start looking for power chisels, you've done a lot in a short time.

Well, since got the 5 Henry Taylor chisels I wanted for Christmas, and a piece of 2x8 Cherry wood.. it's time to try a Maori face.Thisone is straight out of The Art of Maori Carving. There is a step-by-step demo piece... Here is the work so far:







So far it's primarily a couple straight chisels, and a 1/2" medium gouge. I don't have much time in with chisels, so it's slow going. Another growth opportunity!

Doubravsky, the Makin's are All there for an excellent Maori face and you will learn about all those chisels on this one.

Here aremy latest efforts...

a yipwon I've been playing with. It's from a 2x8 piece of cherry about 24" long... nearly done.



and a Lono I've been kind of laying with for a long time. He's 7' tall from Mexican Fan palm. I started him with a saw.. then switched to hand chisels after cutting the headress and some arm guide cuts. The rest has been by hand...

Sorry for the flash... it washes it out quite a bit.



Imade the deadress cuts too shallow towards the head... butI think when I make the cuts up there I can work around it.
