The way you did the flames is outstanding. The two tone sap and the deep but even cut outs is tremendous.

I am of the opinion that you could put flames or pin stripes on about anything and it would look cool.

You did a great job on these flames, can't wait to see it all finished up.

DUDE! that's what I'm talking about when I say "flames n' shit"!!!! that tiki is over the top!

I say accentuate the flames with color - but blend it with the stain so it's not too bright

This one's gonna be killer!

So I am almost ready for stain. I wanted the features of this carving to pop a bit and show off more. So instead of trying to use 2 colors of stain this is what I did



Using my torch I burnt the hell out of the lower features and then sanded them with fine sand paper. I am hoping that when I stain the carving with a Sedona red that they stay darker.

I have some BIG ideas in my head for some new carvings , just need to find the time.




Mahalo for checking them out. Feedback is always appreciated.

After almost cutting the tip of my pinkie off with the hook knife I decided to try again. This time something much simpler in design. Decided to make a business card holder, So I cut out the rough shape with jig saw and then adding a little bit of detail. Still getting the feel for the knife. Maybe try a pendant next time.



Flame tiki is out on deck drying and will be getting some poly later today.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! The business card holder ROCKS!

The flame guy is also amazing, the two-toneing just really brought him to life.

Excelent work!
