My first attempt at tiki carving was at the February San Diego Chop Chop. I need to say thanks to 4wdtiki (Bill) and Clysdalle (Dave) for the help in every aspect. As I started this one I noticed that I wasn't going nearly deep enough and eventually (after asking Dave if I was just being a wuss) started hammering away at it. This is the result of that.





My second attempt was at the March San Diego Chop Chop. Again I need to thank everyone for the help. I just burned and sanded this one for highlights last night.





I am completely hooked and can't wait to get more logs to start chipping away at.

Thanks for looking.

Colin aka Chet

Hey Colin-Looking good! I would say to keep it up, but I have the feeling that you are already hooked. Room for one moooooore!

See ya at the next Chop.

Very nice first and second attempts! I haven't tried carving wood yet. Maybe in the future, keep it up, you have the ability!

At this point I'm giving props to anyone willing to throw caution to the wind as makw something and have it critiqued by this forum. In your case I give you two thumbs up. I am scared it death of trying actual relief carving, so for now I think I will stick to my profiles thank-you very much.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I hope to get some tools and some logs this weekend. Then it will be chopping time.

Ah yes....

Here is #2 drying after a thin single coat of Spar Varnish in 4WDtiki's driveway. I'll get some better pics of it when the sun decides to come back out.

What you can't really see is the nice deep brown color and the rich black (burned areas) the varnish gave it. The single coat also kept it from being super glossy, which I like.

Thank you Benzart. I'm hoping that they keep getting gooder.

Here is #2 stained in the sunlight.

Since I can't make the San Diego Chop Chop tomorrow, I decided to start one today.

I got my own "tools" now too. I bought an electric 14" chainsaw, a flat chisels set ranging from .5" - 1.5" and an angle grinder with sanding fiber discs.

Here are some progress pics:

First time with the chainsaw, I was a little nervous.










Still not done, but this is how far I got. I hope to work on it more Sunday. The sunlight is making the eyes look uneven too, it's not ( I hope ).



Thanks for looking.
