Band-aids are so far unused!

Spent an hour with the saw on this guy today, first progress since the head shot last weekend.







You should leave one like this sometime. I think it looks great.

Damned Bro, I had some friends over today for the 4th and wanted to show them some of everyones works, but my buddy was fixated on this piece, especially when I showed him the progress shot from the chop! Dude, looks really, really sweet! Remember when I asked about how folks felt about others using various aspects of others work on there own stuff, expect to see some of yours floating around!

Lotsa nice, consistant triangles and other geometry on your detail. That protractor is coming in handy, eh Bill?

I appreciate all the kind words, thank you all.

Tikidreams, it's funny you think that. That's how ALL my tikis used to look, before I had any tools except the chainsaw. Maybe I will start leaving a few in the rough stage.

Dav, no protractor was harmed in the making of this tiki. It's all eyeballed, except for the large deep pattern at the very top, where I did mark out 6" triangles. In high schrool, I did ace geometry, but barely passed algebra.

Today's update, for duddy. Both arms are done, here's a pic of one. I love my V-chisel!



I just noticed, some butt-crack has slipped into the picture, sorry!

I managed to get some minor progress on this guy at the Chop over the weekend, just sanding and de-angularizing.

Sunday, I broke out the flexcut V and started the detail work. Here's what I have so far.




That's Kool! I dig it!

Yes Sir, I have to agree, that is great. Very impressive work going on over there 4Wheels. You've switched it on to warp-speed and I'm seriously digging it.
