Ditto everyones "WOW". Damn Girl, you are Goin' to town on those rocks. The right guy answered your questions, and like he says, just keep carving! I think you found your calling.

Hi Mieko, thanks so much for the kind words, I am really enjoying this, but my hand due hurt today....lol. The egg was the first one I did to see if I could do it before I tried the rock. I also cut a bunch of the wooden eggs in half to see if it would work easier, I will try those this weekend. Love the silver chain idea! The help here is amazing, it makes doing these more fun

Hi Tama, Thank you for the help also, I wasn't understanding the whole sanding polishing thing, This make more sense. I also read an answer from Ben, so I think I can give the final steps a try. I will also try some easier designs to practice with. Their is a big rock gem show in AZ in January/February, people come for weeks and it is hge. I will go this year and see if I can scope out some other stone material that might be cool to work with.Thanks again !!

Amy

what a difference a day makes--yesterday...


and a paint job TODAY


the simplicity of this is REAL misleading--that section had ALL the palm crap on it and I stripped and shaved & Shaved & SHAVED to get it that SMOOTH--kinda miss the white wood but the redwood style paint is pretty IMPRESSIVE--hides flaws too

New Dude here...

Yesterday I found a couple of nice cuttings laying on the side of the road and decided to do something with them. Found this Site today...it sure is loaded with a plethora of cool information on carving...Thanks!

So, armed with a fast sketch, and a few chisels that I dug out of my tool box, I just dove in today to see how it felt....Feels good!...Didn't take long to hook me. Now I will have to go spend some money on tools.

Babalu

Hey Benzart,

Thanks for the warm Aloha. I will post more on that first tiki of mine as I progress....the chisels are starting to move around easier now...the palm speaks.

My youngest daughter "Babalu Babe 2" is getting married at the Bali Hai on February 18th. We have the outside space, and the South Pacific Room reserved. My job (not including finding and booking the spot) is to build a tiki alter for the kids. I was initially thinking, and have started sketches, on a bamboo archway (done in that 50's lounge flavor) that will have small islands connected on either side. These rolling islands, that will anchor the arch and over hang, in part are to have period tonga torches, small stone fountains, cool lighting, plants, etc....Now, it looks as though they are going to need a tiki flanking either side as well...hope this wood can dry out enough to put finish of some type on it...it's pretty green...the carvings may just have to do in a more raw form?

At any rate, with all the work for "the man" and holiday traveling coming up....I predict there will be a few late nighters.

Best,

Babalu

You might check with the management staff at Bali Hai to see what tikis they have around they would use for decorations. I know they have a lot in storage, or so I heard. Congrats.

Kia ora Babalu.

Great start, love seeing people approach carving with a great big bite!!! Its the best/quickest way to learn... Looks like you'll have no probs.

Keep us posted on the progress of the wedding Tiki Alter!
