how about a carving day where 3 people share a single log.


After it gets sketched each team starts hacking away...


This way we actually might be able to get a tiki done in one day.


We then play rock paper scissors to see who takes it home.

Mieko did a great project at Polynesiac's class - they cut an 18" section from a palm log, split it in half, and carved two tiki masks from it. Inexpensive, it sits flat on a table or floor, easy to carve, not too big, and you can hollow out the back after the class to hang on a wall. Nifty way to experiment.

The backyard whittling club sounds great. We could do one here for sure after I'm done with landscaping. Should be functional by January. That gives me time to pry my chisels back from Grog.

How can we organize by geographic area?
FYI: I'm in Van Nuys (San Fernando Valley) CA.

How bout a Tiki carving round robin?

Take a log And Draw 12-18" sections, Someone start at the top section, when it is done pass the log off to the next guy they would in turn do the next section, and so on? I also say only draw what is to be carved in your section, and see every ones different carving all on 1 log? But try to make the carvings flow together. We could keep track of it with pics on TC.

If a few people are interested I'll start one and pass it along?

Should be interesting to see what comes out!

My hat is off to Danny , Bosko & son and also Ben.You guys did an amazing job working with so many that have not picked up the chisels before.I saw many great new designs also . I wish I could have been there but I was doing the same thing in Cucamonga for my customers .
And to all the carvers...dont feel bad that you didnt get it all done in one day . You have to learn to walk before you can run .Speed will come .Try not to rush it, its takes the fun out of it .( Tiki-Ray quote: Sometimes a tiki done in one day looks like a tiki done in one day .) Congrats to all of you ,job well done . Tiki-Ray

Let's do it in Squid's back yard so GROG can keep using Squid's tools. ( GROG guess we could do one in GROG's backyard as well, so that GROG can still use Suid's tools.)

There is a mountian bike event (I think it is called Barbie Camp)where the winner wins a bike frame and has to add a single part to it and has to bring it back the following year. The winner of the next years event wins the frame with the pevious winners part and also has to had a part and so on for each subsequent year.

Not that there is a winner of carving. A vote could be made for the best looking tiki of the weekend. The owner of that tiki HAS to carv one bit into a log and bring it to the next carving session.

If there are going to more LCOO's at the Lava Flow the tiki could just stay there.

The great part of this is when the tiki is finally complete it should be very light.

Well, my yard is nothing like the Lava Flow Inn, but I should be able to host a small carving day sometime in the next few weeks. I can borrow some pop-ups from my parents, and we could probably have enough room for 10-12 people I'd think.

I'll let everyone know once I check my calendar. I'm in San Diego near Rockler.

Those "Li'l Burro" sawhorses are on sale at Home Depot right now, in three sizes.

Hey, Mieko, if you host a carve-up, I'll bring food. I wanna finish up my Oki Doki guy, or at least work on the legs and back of head next.

Looks great Kirby! That one looked really hard.
What color stain (if that's what you used) is that? I am really nervous about staining mine too dark, but I really like the color you got.
Thanks!
