Ben,

I have a new Headhunter in the works. It's a 4+ foot piece of wild cherry which is tearing up my chainsaw blade. I hed to take it in for sharpening. The mask is looking pretty good, but I'll wait to post pics until I get the body roughed out.

Raffer, I Can't wait to see your new piece, It's been a long wait, but it will be worth it I'm sure.
Freddie, thanks for sharing those. That moko is not easy, hey. Nice job though. The burner really makes the difference.

Hello. My name is Buzzy. I really do not post my stuff on TC because it sucks and I am very insecure and cannot handle even the slightest bit of criticism. I saw how nice you were to everyone and thought that I might post my first independent hook knife work on this thread:

Been workin' on it for a little over an hour

If this goes well, I'll start my own carving thread some day.

Buzzy Checkin' In

OK then, here's a start. As Moai as it may look now, I'm actually gonna try to squeeze a big, peanut headed, bug-eyed, sucker lipped, no-eared, tatt-faced Maori cat out of this'un. 6 footer, dry, buttery white pine--my first peice! Gotta find my long lost thread and do some pic re-sizing 'fore I can show you the rest.

With this effort I wanted to open the mouth more & it kinda worked to show me the relationship of the other facial features.
But for a twist I gave him the oldest trick in the world. The ball in a cage headdress.
Hes also coconut palm & 4 ft tall

I was just thinking about some of the classic Chinese carving tricks yesterday, such as the ball in the cage or the mouth of a carving, spheres inside spheres, chains with free moving links etc, and here we have it in tiki form - nice work!

Benzart,

Here's end result of my first Tiki. I added some detail, torched it, and put water seal on it. Intitially, the detail in forehead was going to be different but the wood started to split so I just went with it. It came out kind of interesting, I guess. Thanks for your help and encouragment. I'm still working on the little guy.

Aloha Stentiki, I see you've been influenced by Bosko too. Long time no see, glad you're doing better. Nice work!!
