Heya Mc... nice tiki. Don't give up on the pine so easy... white is nice but yellow ain't half bad either. Look at the nice grain you had in the mouth and eyes. You just stained it too dark. Try Early American next time... the walnut really darkens up pine.

You want to talk about hard... try the 3 foot chunk of ash I finished up today... BEAUTIFUL grain though! It'll be at Hukilau.


Oh... just noticed you wanted to hide the grain though with the Dark Walnut. How come? I think the grain looks purty.

Also like the carving MC...looks good...sorta vintage...and the design is a nice combination
of styles....I am just now starting to dig into my first big piece of pine and it's a lot
different that working with basswood....but I think my piece is kinda rotten. Keep the
good works coming!

I think it turned out great too! Maybe you should carve more pine, it is good training..We hereby sentence you to 30 days of carving nothing but yellow pine, or until you find some redeeming nature of the stuff.

Thanks for the props guys. You are way way too kind. Yeah, I probably went too dark Lake. I'll take you up on the color you recommended for the next ones.

I already started a new Palm log. It felt like butter. MMMMMmmm butter. This one is a bit different as far as design though.

Sentence accepted (once these 2 other palm carvings are done). I have blades dedicated to palm and blades dedicated to "other"

Redeeming nature of yellow Pine = Firewood carved into 12" lengths for the pit

Nice work McT! Your carves are really nice. What's up with the one in the background there, with the coconut shells? Did you do that?

Thanks TikiGap. Yes the MerTikis were my Wahine's idea. Here's the thread for them

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=20817&forum=7&14


Started my first Tang and it's a gift, so, naturally, it turned out nice and I want to keep it. I'll post up some pics tonight.

Thanks again.

Nice work on the latest one McTiki...he looks right at home with Mertiki. Has a little bit
of the Bosko look, but that's sorta "vintage" by now isn't it? Looks great...anxious to see
your Tang.

Thank you Conga & Ben. Yeah, its no MerTiki. I was just validating new tools that I was introduced to recently. Awesome ease of shaping anything makes a difference.
From the electric saws I was using before to this. Wow. This is as fun as it gets. Of course, I haven't tried a Foredom so I am probably full of crap huh?


Thanks again!

McTiki,

It looks like you have a wild one on your hands. He looks hungry! I can't wait to see where you take him. Great start on this guy!
