drasticwagon... go for it!
Seems like its snowing everywhere this winter.
Snow is a very forgiving medium... take a chunk off, put a chunk back on.
Problem with this guy is 10 minutes after the picture was taken he fell over from the rain.

Thanks Jim!
I'd trade all the snow tikis in the world to live where it didn't snow, but you make the best of where you are!
It's only crummy weather here 8 months out of the year.

Thanks Benz!
Softest material you can carve!
The hand is doing well. The incision is healing pretty quick, though I can't exactly say this activity was doctor approved.
But the driveway needed clearing and then I just got the urge to play in the snow.
Still going to be a little time before I'm swinging the mallet.

So, snow tikis are fun and all that, but they don't have much staying power.

Off to see the Doc in the am for a Post-Op evaluation, but the hand has been healing nicely.

I won't be swinging mallets around within the next few weeks still, but I can use my left hand to carve with,
with no effect on my right one. Pieces that I work on are clamped down to the table.

Here is a 44" tall Marquesan relief piece that I have had waiting for a while.
Managed to get the top guy done... maybe wrap the whole thing up Tuesday.

Aloha Woody!

Its good to be back at it. Saw the doc this morning and he said I'm good to go.
Days are just a little more fulfilling with tiki in them.
Good to hear your Maori piece arrived safely... enjoy!

AKUAE, thanks for stopping by, and I appreciate the compliment!
