I found a bit of time here and there to do a some work on Lil' Pumpkin. Mostly on the eyelashes/braids.






This vertebra area has proved to be the most difficult part. Not only does it need to be somewhat symmetrical (X4), but it breaks easily while carving. I have had to retrieve a few pieces from off the floor and glue them back on. DOH!

Thanks for looking.



Wow! spectacular! and in eucalyptus!!!
(you are totally banned from my thread until you finish this amazing master pieces!! Do you hear me !! ) !
Can't wait for the next update!!

Thanks for visiting, guys (y chica)!

Perry: Yeah, the mold would be just slighty more complicated!
Capt'n Skully: Thanks, man.....and Arrrg!
Benz: Always a pleasure!
Babalu: Can you believe I started this guy way back at PIFA!
Benella: Merci, my friend! It's Eucalyptus wood. It looks similar to the chestnut you are carving, doesn't it? Yes, I'll stain it but I don't know with what yet.
Harro: Thanks for stopping by. Don't give up on the Quebracho! Hope you and Clarita can possibly persuade some new Tiki carvers in BA!
KAHAKA: Thanks, "frickin nuts" is good enough for me!
Seeksurf: Thanks for visiting!
Clarita: Gracias! Okay, he's almost done, then I can get back to hijacking your thread with more Tikicopper Mayhem..muhuhahahahahhahhhh!

You've worked long and hard on this one Dav, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. Since you are just about done, I figured it's long about time I'd start mine:

I found a quicker way to do the layout this time. It's way more accurate than drafting it to scale by hand:

It's on basswood, so the carving should go pretty quick.

If you have time, could you post me a picture of the back from the center line, it would help me out a lot.


Off to work!
Buzzy Out!

Darn Sir B,

I am going to be on the road while your doing the Tonga show. I would have loved to drive up there with you. Everybody, go support Dave at the Tonga Hut on Feb 23rd!!

Buzzy, Nice design...your method seems much better than the grid pattern thing I was fooling with

No problem! I hope this helps. Let me know how your new rip-off, I mean layout method works. That's a good idea. I want to try that too. Saaaay, that's a nice bottle of Elmer's you got there. I have one of those. Hmmm.....is that one mine?

Here is Lil' Punk with two coats of Minwax Golden Oak stain, and Krylon Matte Finish spray acrylic over it. Now all I need now is a fork to stick in him because he's done!


I started this fellow at the last Chop. Musubi Mom turned us on to her secret recipe concrete mix that contains vermiculite and another ingredient that escapes me for the moment. I think it was Eye of Newt or something like that. Anyways, you pour the concoction into a cup and let it set for a few hours. When it starts setting it's still soft enough that it can be carved (but use old chisels because they will get dull). In a few days the magic concrete brew will set up hard, but in the meantime it can be carved. This piece (that still remains nameless) is about 6" tall. I worked on it for about an hour. It's the first time I spent less than a day to finish a carving, which is a complete miracle!


Tikis and plants like each other, so if you have some plants, put your Tikis with them and let them go nuts! Thanks for visiting!

He's gorgeous, Dave. I can't believe he's finally done. He was starting to threaten Oki Doki's reign as Chop mascot.

Bowana - LOVE that finishing coat, and the spray-on looks swell. My fave part of this sculpture is the leetle teeny teeth; he looks like a punchy ex-boxer on holiday.

I vote he's the new mascot, of 2008!

(I'm building Oki Doki a surfboard table top to hold onto. This doesn't mean he's a mascot, just that he still isn't finished. The board will have a hand-carved glassed on fin, fake decals, etc.)
