As far as tiki carving goes...



And after only 2 years I've worn my old ipod out... my wonderful wife got me a new one of those. Music is a must when I'm carving

Aloha all -

Lets see - Tiki-wize I got a great tiki t-shirt by Patagonia (of all people) and some AMAZING books on clay that I have been devouring! Also got a neat tiki-esque mask from Laos that is hanging on my wall and staring me down as I type.

Mele Kalikemaka!

Well I can't top Swanky's present, but I got a set of buck bros bench chisels


Which by the way, Coontiki (benzart) taught me how to sharpen!

They're pretty sharp!

MELE Kalikimaka!!
Glad to see everyone getting tiki related gifts. Tiki's rule.
I got a small chisel set from Lee Valley, and an "Oceanic Arts" book. The bummer is, I got a new place to live with the g-friend, and NO place to carve! I'll have to drive to my dad's house, where all my stuff is stored. Definately throws a brick into the gears. Already looking for a new place!!

Tiki Santa was great to me this year! I got a new workmate to carve on, I got a set of flexcuts (the 6 piece starter set, which gets me a great set of smaller stuff to use with my sculptors set that I had), some dental picks for small stuff.
I also got a Ukulele, a beautiful one from Costco - I never thought about playing one, but I saw this one at costco and wanted it. It's koa and abalone. It's been really fun to play with.

Of course I've also managed to pick up some wrist problems/carpal tunnel since I started carving, so I'm on somewhat of a break from carving.

Sis Hiltiki here. Santa was kind enough to bring me Flexicut carving tools, a few boxes. Let's hope I put them to good use. Santa also got me a few books recommended by TC Ohana.
Maori Art by Barrow
The Art of Maori Carving by Mead
Carved Histories by Neich
Sharpening Basics by Spielman
I am happy happy happy...

Santa was good to me this year (he must have had some misinformation). I got a new bandsaw, Flexcut chisels, Henry Taylor chisels, a nice resperator, The Book of Tiki (now I see what all the fuss was about), and to top it all off - a signed print from Thor!!!!

Oh yeah and a pair of flip-flops with a bottle opener built-in!

Now that I have some decent tools I guess I have to step up my carving.

Santa brought me a Chainsaw, a new power tool pack (drill, circular saw, reciprocating saw, dustbuster, flashlight) Dremel stuff (sanding/grinding kit, Carving kit, plunge router and router bits) and a shp-vac to clean up afterwards. yeah for me, I just hope I can retain all of my fingers and limbs.

Oh, and I got a wake up call. My friend came over New Years who had helped at Coon Tiki with the tables. I showed him the bar and he says "which did you carve?" Um, uh...

I learned all the good stuff and then spent the entire summer using the earth gouge chisel known as a shovel instead. I hope next summer I get back at it. I have a nice open lanai and a work shop in the new house.
