A Most Impressive piece Sir!. Not only is the carving excellent, but you went Above and Beyond with the sanding and application of an Excellent finish. Verrry Welll done. You are setting your bar high and this leads to Higher quality stuff from you, Can't Wait!


Ben, your compliments mean alot, thank you!
All the sanding on this piece was done with a 36 grit(!) disc on my angle grinder! I'm not one of you multiple step sanders. I think the double coat of varnish really hides the fact well, at least in this pic.
I might have set my bar too high, it'll be a little while before I try another one at this level. I need to at least buy myself some real chisels first!

This is probably a good time to post this tiki.

It's my first tiki! circa 2000.
Buzzy saw it stashed under a tree, in my granddaughter's "fort".
I guess I HAVE progressed.

When I first met 4WD several months back, he admitted he didn't know how to post his pictures on TC and that he wasn't computer savy. I asked him how many tikis he had carved and he thought it was close to 100! I was like All his old pictures are not digital, so we might need to teach him how to scan...

4WD IN DA CARVING HOUSE! Finally...

Yeah, it's about time you learn how to cut and paste, sandbagger.

Some 4WD History:
Turns out, a tiki that the tree service salvaged from a house that was to be torn down was his






Buzzy Out!

Thanks, Hewey!

Here's the one from page 1, I just finished varnishing it. It's a satin finish, but jeez is it glossy.


Sandbaggin', Buzzy-got-my-back, Bill OUT!

Well, Bill Out, Thanks for the history and Yes, you Have come a Long way. Just keep on raising the bar and you will continue to go another Long way.. Get some different grit disks, a router speed control for your grinder and a good dust mask and get back to work.

Yeah, Ben, I've been wanting to get a speed control for the grinder. I do use a good cartridge mask, although I didn't used to until I read the suggestion on this board.
I splurged on a new tool yesterday. well, new to me.

It needs a good sharpening, but otherwise in good, antique shape.

Here's my next tiki. I started it two days ago.
I'm not used to taking progress shots, so sorry, this is the point at which I remembered.
Before today's work.

After today's work.
A little rough sanding, and some chainsaw action on the headdress, which goes down the whole back.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Ben and Hilda.

Here's today's progress. I finished carving and sanding the headdress, and a little more sanding on the face and body.
I hope to have it burned and stained by Sunday!

Your composition is perfectly balanced, this is a real nice piece. Please tell me how long it took you to do the sanding? And did you use an electric sander?

Thanks, Hil! Yep, I use a mini grinder with a sanding disc on it to do the sanding. You can see it in the first pic of this tiki, a couple posts up.
I spent maybe an hour tops today, sanding.
