Tikimecula,

I could never pull those photos up on my PC at home with the slow dial-up connection, so I finally had to view them at work. That club really turned out nice. I like the idea of carvings that can be done from nice kiln-dried stock with no splitting and cracking. Very clean piece!

BTW, I finally got to the part in your Maori book about the incantations the carvers used before starting on a carving to keep the log from splitting. I think I might have to try that...

A ruler and a pencil, That's it. If you make a mistake with the pencil there is always the eraser:)

On another note, at Office Depo I picked up a 24" bendable ruler for about $5, Comes in real handy some times, for drawing a straight line on a round object.

I have to learn some of your patience for accuracy. It really seems to pay off. Nice piece, and functional as well.

Here is the Kini Kini I have been working on. I forgot to get any shots up to this point. It's 27" Tall. The wood is Cherry.





And here is a Samoan War Club (I think?), I am also working on. It's 41" tall. Cherry wood also.



More later...

Nice Kini, great, graceful sweep...and nice Apa Apai blank, Mec..Cherry is a joy to carve. It is super hard and tight, and fairly heavy. It holds detail very well..and in the case of your Kini Kini, it will also hold an edge very well...The edges and points of this club should be very, very sharp. It had a gruesome purpose! I carved one of these for Pablus and he makes a show of hooking limes from a bowl to use in friend's drinks at his Lagoon Lounge! It is a thrill to see someone else doing some clubs! Very important part of tiki decor. Tiki bars everywhere will thank you

Thanks guys! I finished the Kini up today and got it stained will post pics when it drys.

Moon, I can get cherry around here for around $6 a BF, not bad considering I found some Koa at the same place for $25 a BF! (Ouch......so i bought that too!)

Hey Tmec, that Samoan looks Awesome! What did you use to cut in all the lines? Excellent, straight lines and well perportioned. Thats a Killer Club( pun intended).

Thanks Ben, About 90% of it i used a 1/8" parting tool, and the other 10% i used my recip Weecher with a 1/4" parting. I seem to have more control with out that 2 foot spinning cable getting in my way. I love the Weecher but some times the hand tools are quicker and easier for me.
