Here are photo's of the best chainsaw Tiki's in the Northeast!! After some sanding and 3 coats of Spar Varnish (satin)
In fact these baby's will only go outside in the best weather.

THESE ARE MADE BY GMAN, NOT ME. I'm just showing them off.





THANK YOU AGAIN GMAN, we love them both equally!
Annie & Wesley

Thanks for sharing your tikis Wes, they really look nice. The design is perfect for using your straight chisels. When you get a few gouges, you will see your work change. Keep up the good work.

Here's a mask I roughed out with a chainsaw in August. I used a palm sander on it today(with one hand). I put a couple of spray on coats of satin spar to seal it.





It's pine and is 10" wide and 27" tall. I had to do something today to quit whinning about my damaged hand.
Thanks for looking.
Wes

Great job Wes! That is top notch. Man, if you rough 'em out like that and then use your chisels to detail you could make some pretty heavy duty stuff! Bring it on!

Sometimes its nice to bring up old work that wasn't finished and finish it with all the knowledge you have learned. These were early pieces of yours and you have progressed beyond them but you did an excellent job finishing them. Keep it up. your talent is beginning to really show through.

Thanks for the comps GMAN, Ben and Palama.
I needed to do something beside whine about my hand.
Today more feeling has returned to my fingers. It still bleeds when I do something stupid like try to open a jar. I'm stoked about the swelling going down and the feeling coming back. I'll be back to carving soon. I see the doctor tomorrow morning.

I'm almost done with a reproduction of Finkdaddy wall lamp. I went to Oceanic website to buy one but couldn't get to it. Plus I am very low on cashish this month due to the kitchen refacing.
Here's Finkdaddy's sweet wall lamp:

Here's my attempt at what I thing it is. It's 12" high and 11" wide.


My daughter Devyn made the macrame hemp strap to cover the top & bottom of the fasteners of the bamboo.

I had to make a cut out in the back to replace the bulbs:


Also I covered the wood with aluminum to protect from the heat of the bulbs.

The start of the wiring:


Next is the wiring to be cleaned up and the defused white covering for the front and the bamboo to be installed.
The wood I used was poplar for the back and mahogany for the top and bottom half circles. I hope to be done by Sunday. I'm putting my base kitchen cabinets and counter top back in today.
Thanks for looking!
Wesley
