So here's what I started yesterday:



Funny how much carving you can get done when you're unemployed!
Here it is three hours later.


It may be done, I'm not sure. I'm liking the roughness of it.


It looks so brawny in this pic. It's about 4 feet tall, and almost 20" diameter at the top!

And here it is all done.


This piece of palm had some nice variation in the color of the wood. That and the many vertical cracks really give it the aged look that I was going for.

Another Winner out the gates Bill!
I agree about the roughness
It's hard to get a spontaneous look with a carving
but you hit it!
Vert cracks RAWK!

when you visitin the studio?

YES, I'm with you in the roughness adds to the "Look". Excellent job, he is Definitely a roughneck with a big head, not a great comvo to meet up with at night in a dark alley!

Hey thanks, guys! Glad you 'get' what I was trying for on this one.

One interesting note about this tiki, the piece of wood was cut down 4 or 5 years ago, and has been just sitting and aging outdoors, the same as the big tiki I carved last month on pg 29. Both pieces had an overall coconut brown color to the wood that I haven't seen in fan palm before. It's usually very white. I'm thinking when the wood finally dries fully all the way through, which these two pieces had, it darkens into a great mottled brown. These pictures don't capture it fully.
I've carved other pieces that had 'only' dried for 2-3 years, and it was still damp and white inside. The color and texture of the wood on the pg 29 tiki is what inspired me to try the ancient look on this one.

I have to move at the end of this month, so I doubt I'll get much carving in for a while. But, I have a line on a new place to live that will have a bigger carving area than I've had here in Oceanside! Stay tuned...

I just went and looked at the possible new place, and I'm probably going to take it. I would be moving in with a couple friends who have a 2.5 acre horse ranch just east of Oceanside, with lots of room for me to carve, and they said I could host chops!!!

YAY!! Horse Ranch! Glad to hear you might be able to host Chops again Bill - best news all day

I too like the texture of this new guy...the little vertical cracks rock! But I like the little divots here and there look too...Hummmm -

When I was younger I had this job working as a laborer for a bit, and I'll never forget on one job the contractor gave us each some rope with some nuts and bolts tied to it...we spent all day beating up this brand new wood floor he had just installed in this house. In the beginning of the job, we thought he was nuts, but after that floor was stained, it looked pretty cool. The ole distressed look...might be a fun way to age a tiki a little?
