Excellent pieces you are creating, just Really tight. My Only suggestion to you and actually ALL Carvers is to Flatten the bottom Before you start the carving. I'm as bad as the next guy and I always kick myself when I forget. Flatten first carve last instead of Swearing last.

Hey, I had to look a long way to find Something to bitch about!

Yes, I'm bad about this too. I'm always too impatient to start on the body.

TikiG, Lake Surfer, GROG, congatiki, TheBigT, surfintiki, amate, tikigodz, BIG tiki scott and Benzart mauruuru for all the compliments, I wanted to make a base just because when I stand the KU up I felt it was a bit short and was undermining his man, ha ha, he needed to be a bit higher. Than I was checking out buzzy amazing drums and the idea came up, doing a 3 faces stand would be cool. First I wanted to be true to the island setup, the Polynesian triangle, Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island, but being a Tahitian freak I had to switch Easter Island with a Marquesan face.

BigT you should go ahead and raise that Tiki by the fireplace.

Benzart, you're right I should definitely clean up the base before carving, for some reason I always think it's going to workout just fine at the end.

I just finished the drum this morning before going to work, the skin is finally drying, the sound starts to be cool, here are some picts. I'll try to record something when it's fully dry.

As above, I say its a beautiful drum too.

I would not be suprised if at some point, while sleeping late at night, this drum creates a tone on its own and wakes you up

Universal drummer's mojo is captured within the carve...within the wood. DIG IT!

Again, top notch carves, Tahitiki.

Right down to the finished product... everything well polished and in it's place.

No worries about things being super level, I've done some things that have a slight lean or a curve and most people are jazzed about it.

All depends on what makes you happy... and you seem very happy with the work you produce because it shows.

No carving yet this summer (I did collect 2 six footer and a fat 5')
So far I've finished... almost... the big Ku and its base.



I got busy working on my scooter (had it for so long, I had to restrained myself from carving for some times just to make sure i would finish fixing it)







pictures from phones sucks! I'll have to work on this...
