Very cool, I especially like how you carved the mouth.

I like the mouth as well, but the whole tiki was thought out well. The dots add to it. Another biter?

OK, I give up, How did you get the dots all over the tiki? Paint, Inlay, Chicken pox??
Inquiring minds want to know.

I've started work (again) on #11. It's a piece of black walnut which is fairly easy to carve. I think it's similar to mahogany to carve, but I don't think the grain is as pretty. I'm thinking of using a nice dark stain and poly and see if I can give it a nice warm glow. There's a lot to carve on him first though.







Thanks for looking!

Nice start Finky, and what are you using to carve these? That was probably posted earlier...
but I'm too lazy to look. Are you "hook knifing" it?

Finky, He is looking super cool. You will find that carving walnut varies from piece to piece depending on where on the tree the piece came from and how it was cured. I have some that is soft as Mahogany and some hard asnails. SOme with straight palin grain and some spectacular. Don't judge the whole tree by one branch! Just keep on carving your marvelous tikis!

I like the concept and layout so far. This will be a great piece. How tall is it?

Thanks a bunch Conga, Benz, and JohnnyP. I still haven't invested in that hook knife yet. Maybe if you come down on the 27th Conga, you can show me how to use it? I'm hoping that as I begin to carve deeper that he will loose that square, clunky look. I'm not happy so far, I always go through a stage where I hate what I'm carving, but it almost always works out in the end. This guy is about 4 inches tall I think. Thanks for the kind words everyone.

This one's looking cool Finky! I think it'll have traditional DNA, but with that Finky style we all love.

Even Shag doesn't mind Finkdaddy's #1 tiki...

Here is the beginning of a wall hanging I'm making for one of my wife's friends who wants to give it as a wedding gift. I'm planning on mounting it on a surf board shaped background.


Here is the progress on #11. This guy, I think, will be going to Kingstiedye.


Two things have jump-started my carving bug again:
The fact that I want to buy a uke that I can't really afford, and the announcement about Hukilau '06. I need drinking money!
