Great work. I like the tall guy on the left side in the last picture a lot. That would look great in my backyard jungle.

Guess what, Hilda? It's for sale!

Today's tiki = Two Hour Tiki. One hour this morning, went to see our favorite band this afternoon, and then another hour after dinner. Nuthin fancy.

I really like your style mate. Im getting some 5 foot palm logs, and there's a good chance you will see some 4WD influence in my carves on them

Looking foward to seeing them, Hewey!

So I've entered a new phase in my carving. I bought my own set of Flexcut chisels!!!
I got the 6 piece starter set.
Here's my first use of them, I added onto an existing tiki.


Then I grabbed the one I carved with the chisels purchase in mind. This is how it looked on page 7:




This is after chisels:

Wow Bill, he's just incredible! It's so exciting seeing what you're doing with new tools! How'd you get the nice dark lines in the chiseled areas? Burn again then sand?

The lines are a nice addition to your tikis. A really good place to pick up shapes for your designs is to look at tapa cloth designs. Another idea is to add some colour in the lines: reds, whites etc

I love the details that you've added Bill. You have a distinctive style, and this just adds a whole new dimension to it.

Love your style 4WDtiki. Its different, kind of chunky and tribal looking. Very pleasing to my eye. I just dont get how some of you guys make tikis so fast (two hours? ). It takes me hours and hours.

Wow, it's been two weeks with no carving!, but I started a new one today. I skinned this log last month, and have been waiting for a plan to formulate, but I gave up and just started winging it! I call it the Mr. Potatohead Carving Method: I like these eyes, and that nose, and I'll use this mouth, etc. Pretty soon I got a tiki goin' on.

I'm not sure how I'll do the body yet, but it'll have one, and something around the top of the head.
I will continue the winging soon!

Excellent work, personality really pops out with the detail that you are adding.
These are very "easy" to look at...not too busy.
