Looks great. Don't worry about be symmetrical. Nothing in the world is exact on both sides. The uneven "balance" will give your guy expression and bring him to life. Some people get very anal about being perfectly balanced - just go with it and you will be happy with the result.

Lookin Great BUT you Should worry about Symmetry and don't listen to those guys. Symmetry will get you everywhere. I like'um nice and neat and straaight and even steven on both sides, top and bottom.
Believe all that crap and you'll never learn. You Must have the ability to let things be natural and UN Even and Lopsided. It adds interest and character and makes you a better carver for being able to figure out how to put it all together.
Don't worry 'bout Nutt'in as you are miles ahead of where you should be and are gonna be a Super tiki carver very soon. Keep up the good work!!

SS,

I keep mine wrapped in blankets when I'm not working on them. It seems to slow the water loss some. I usually start with fairly seasoned wood, how green is this piece?

Gman, I dropped this tree down this summer or the one before?
Its somewhat wet in the middle and has been outside drying under a large
tree at the WA coast. I never sealed the ends, but all my new log supply have
all been sealed at the ends.

Seeksurf This one's looking sweet. I like the head dress. I think you can change your title from "kook tiki carver" to "Grom Tiki carver" or something, cuz you're no kook.

To edit the subject line simply click the edit button on the first post of this thread.
