Excellent Stuff T, I Really am Digging the Crisp detail you are getting on your tikis, Very Precise. The stain came out very nice on that last one though you should Never hurry through the staining precess since you could jeopardize Many long hours of work in just a few minnits. The Stain DESERVES to have time taken with it Also. I see many carvers Hurrying through the stain and finish when those are the phases which require a decent amount of time to make a piece look Spectacular. The difference in time spent on the finish determines if your final piece will be "OK","Good","Great","Fantastic", and "Wow thats INCREDIBLE" in peeps reviews, Always keep this on your mind.
Keep Practicing you are Definitely getting better.

Hey everyone. Here's the latest on the current carving. Pretty much done with this one except finish sanding, adding teeth and cutting notches on the headdress.





Just got a new Dremel Multi Mate to use for detail sanding. So far I like it! I'll try to post a pic if I can remember.

Benella, Seeksurf, Drastic, TikiL, Benz, thanks all for the comps! Much appreciated and very humbling coming from such talented folks.

big daddy: yep, that's left over's from Ike. I think I'll name him Ike and carve his name at the bottom.

palmCity: I know what u mean! I *think* it's getting easier... But why does it still take me so loooong??!

benz: appreciate all the at-a-boy's! I'm trying to stay patient with this thing as I've been working on it off and on since april. whew... I still see some flaws, but i'm eager to get going on the next on already.

Hey Big T . I was in Galveston on Fathers Day Weekend and I went over to Crystal Beach to see how it was coming along , Not so great. There was an abundance of palm everywhere still . I am thinking about heading back down there in August to stock up. Tikiloco was there still on the side of the road carving away too , that was good to see....
