That mask is looking great. The negative space is really adding alot. So come on - give this guy a mouth already.

Nice pile of logs, got one done yet? I guess we'll be seeing a full body soon?
See you tomorrow?
I'm really loving your current mask.

Aloha everyone!

I haven't been around much lately. A lot going on in other areas of my life I suppose. A terrible excuse, I know.
Today I finally finished up #3. It's carved from a piece of coconut palm and was much harder wood than I expected. Cutting out those angles was very difficult and I was afraid they would break off. It all worked out nicely though. He's about 46" tall and 15" at his widest point.




Most of this one was carved with my new set of Flexcuts! I'm very pleased with them to say the least, and of course big thanks as always to master Benzart for his sagely advice.
Next up is a big piece of cabbage palm. I'm planning a full body for this one too.
Thanks again for looking everybody!

Finky, I'm REALLY Happy to see what you have done to this guy! I guess those Flexcuts really lit a fire somewhere.
I stopped by Thursday as Finky was working on the mouth and tongue and this is the first I have soon of him since then. GO man Go. Excellent work there. I'd Love to take credit for how he turned out but he is all yours, We're looking for Magical tikis from you so Crank it UP!

Nice job Fink. I'm glad you were able to score a few new toolz and put them to good use. Sorry to hear the life thing is getting in the way of your carving. It won't always be that way, and we understand. I hope things are looking up for you.

-G

Looks great Finky! Love the use of negative space, especially on such a large piece. Dont let your life get in the way of your REAL priority - keeping us fed with pics of your tikis! Cant wait to see you go full bodied

Congratulations on a great piece Finkdaddy, you should be proud of this one too.
The open cuts are very cool and the design is awesome. When things get too stressfull
just grab the chisels and dig away.
But that doesn't always work...I spent about five hours on a two footer over
the weekend...everything was going great...and the head broke off. Now it's either
the headless tiki or it's gonna be firewood.
Sorry to ramble...great stuff.

Thanks a ton Marcus!
Thanks Traveling Jones, I'm loving the Flexcuts. They're staying real sharp, even after the hard coconut wood.
You're the best Ben! Please stop by tomorrow and show me how to straighten out my v-liner. It's all goofed up and I'm afraid to use it.
Don't worry Gman, life wont stop me, even if it wants to. I'll give you a call tomorrow some time. I have off so I'll be home all day. Mahalo!
My mate Hewey! The negative space was fun but surprisingly difficult. It turned out well though. Thanks a bunch.
Aloha Conga! One of my biggest faults is that my mood greatly effects my creativity. If I'm not 100%, I just can't do it. Sorry to hear about your tiki's head. Maybe you could turn it into some sort of head hunter piece!
Thanks everyone, you're all wonderful.

Yeah...families, life, commitments - jeez! It's all about the tiki man! Obviously all that other stuff hasn't got in the way of you developing some amazing chops on these big guys. I'm a big fan of negative space too and you've pulled off an ambitious design here with ease. I'm gonna have to get me some of those flexcuts!

Mahalo Paipo! It's actually a small set of Flexcuts and a small set of Irwin flat chisels. There's a few more random chisels I'd like, but for now I'm pretty happy.

McTiki! I'm not sure what's next. I know it's a big piece of cabbage palm, but that's all I know until I actually dig into it. I like surprises too!

I should probably point out at this time that #3 is for sale.
