You got what it takes to carve. Your lines and designs are very nicely done. You don't have all that much to learn. Nice work Heath.

Heath,

Your carvings are beautiful, period. You are not wasting your weekends any more than the rest of us idiots

Keep going and keep posting. Your most recent piece is fab!

I certainly wouldnt call it a waste of your weekends, great stuff, very clean & crisp. From my own minimal dabblings with wood I know how tough that is to achieve. Keep it up! TTT

I Just noticed the h=Wheels that you have mounted on your carving benck, Man that Rocks, I'm going to have to try a variation of that. I can see how the hollowed out tiki hampered your turning capability now! Excellent

Thank you all for the kind words.
Everyone has been such an inspiration to get back into carving!

Here are a couple that I did for a friends company. They were going to be on display in her trade show booth in Vegas, but due to some problems in the company, she and the tikis didn't make it out there. Hopefully next year!


I was going to surprise her and put the company name on the bottom band, but there's a name change coming. Luckily I found out before I did it.

Like a mug shot, "Turn your heads!"



"Other way!"



"Face the rear!"



My mailbox was the only one I'd ever stained until these two. They actually only got clear-coated.


More later.
Thanks for looking!

I just added wheels to my cheezy workmate.. (No offence, Gene)...

It works well. No more dings in the wood from the workmate.

Here's a pic...


or two:


And thanks for the idea Heath!

tikigap, I'm glad I could help. I used to have to use a strap to stop the logs from rolling around but it always seemed to end up in the way. I finally got so fed up that I picked up some locking casters, big difference! Here are some pics...

hewey, thank you, I'm looking forward to seeing your buggy when you get it finished!

makutiki, thank you, it's actually just a clear coat on old dry palm. My friend didn't want any stain on them, but I figured I should do something.

Thank you all for the kind words, I'll try to get back to the carving when I get the house re-assembled. Long story...
