What's the name of the color stain ? Walnut? Really beautiful.

Benella, it is MINWAX Red Mahogany 225! I hope it gets more even on the second coat.

Alright, here it is about three months later (two facial reconstructions/broken arms/and not enough sanding). Overall I think it turned out okay for my first carve. I had a blast making it. Thanks everybody who checked it out and left comments, especially the ones who helped me out with tips and ideas!!!! Big thanks to GMAN for really helping me throughout this whole carve. G, you truly are a great person! LOTS OF PICS, SORRY! Off to start on a new one. G, the "earl" worked awesome!









That's a lot!

Hey man! Sorry I didn't post sooner (been out slinging arrows at food) - he looks great! I'm glad you stayed with him and didn't let the feet, the face cracks, the arm loss, and all the other pitfalls stop you. You've learned a bunch, and now we'll expect even tighter pieces from you. Set this Tang aside and keep him safe, because every time you see him you will remember and smile about how much fun and frustration he gave you.

Now you need more tools, more free time, and you need to show us pics of the new guy.

-G

Thanks G, any good kills? Start of the base of #2 (black cherry). So far it is much easier than the oak!

Awesome Tang mate. You should be very proud of yourself! Good to see that you went in deep, fully 3-D and didnt hold back. Big fat dong too - why not? I like your style!

Good good job Craig...I bet you feel kinda like a proud papa! After all you went through together, and look what you've made! YAY!

Good luck with the next one.

Boy oh boy, that first tiki finished up Super nice, and places your skill level Way up there. Your second tiki looks like he will be just as super. Take your time and think about your cuts before you make them and you'll be great. Can't wait to watch this guy unfold.

Great job on number 1!!! The progress shots that show the good the bad and the ugly just prove that you just chip away what's not Tiki.

And yes the ladies always dig the Tang.


Can't wait to see how the second one comes out. Looks like a sorcery tiki from the drawing. Please keep posting progress shots.

Thanks Benz, Benella, Seeksurf, Alientiki, and Clarita.

I had one of the coolest days yesturday! I had one of my favorite artists at my house helping me out on my latest carve showing me techniques and some chainsaw lessons! Who is this GREAT person? The one and only GMAN! Here are some progress pictures of what when on. I am not taking credit for this as it was mainly GMAN working his magic while I was trying to soak it all in, now hopefully I don't mess it up! It was a real honor to actually have him at my house and I still can't believe he was their. Thanks a lot G, I may have been tired but I had a blast!!!!
