ALMOST WEEKEND UPDATE! YEAH!!!



-Hey! Thank you Bill! The marq pendant is now on market place... The walnut log will be a spring project, much water in it and far too heavy to handle. First step chainsaw splitting for storage!



-Thank's for the WOW Bennno!


-Thank's for comment McTiki.


-Thank's for the comp' Kino. Actually we have 4 inches of snow and more to come... Difficult to make something in the work shop right now... but I'll do!


-2 feet by 6 feet! Right BenZ, incredible! You have the eye of the eagle! More shop shots to come!


-Hey BigT! Thank for stopping by! The work shop nice and clean only during the time of the photo. Hum...




Some pics of two Marquesan tiki achieve in my work during the year-end party
Theme of this year was "islands and sun"... make tiki was obvious, even if it was the first day of snow here.




Chainsaw carved into a collage of four planks of fir


Painted by a friend


In the reception room


Next week, I'll post better pics (I hope!) and some other works soon finished...


Thank's for looking!
Have a nice day!


Jérôme.

Haha! Thank's for A+++ Grog! You are an excellent international rating agency...

Hey Benz! When "four planks" become "four tops"! The walnut log is finally stored after much ado and handling and even a little back pain:


Start



First cut



Wedged before cut the other side




Done! Now storage and cleaning...





Other thing of this moment:

Tiki mask finished



A hunk of copper for sign it the tikis:



And as the chainsaw was on the way, I started another Tangaroa:

One smallest gone, one bigger come...




Tomorow an other update for toolz addicts...




Thank's for looking!
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

Wow hiltiki!! Thank you so much for the comp'! Really enjoyed this side of the ocean. I'm feel like a beginner when I see topics of the famous carver across this forum... The quote would be a challenge so much there.


As promising above some pics of my old Gran Pa adze . I again change the handle for a longer, so, I was take time to carve it a little bit, and polishing the edge.



















Thank's for looking!
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.

I think that is the first tiki snowman if have seen! I like the adze, but I think I would be afraid to use it!

Looks like there is a lot of great things going on in your garage.

How is carving walnut? It would seem like it would be a difficult hardwood. I love the black & white pics. Nice work!

Hey Big T, thank's by stopping here! Some other "snoai" here. The snow has melted now but the cold is still here... For the adze, I am aware of the danger. I am trying to design a smaller one.

Grand Poobah, for my part walnut is the wood for carving (in my country!). It is classified as semi-hard and the grain is held very well in the cut. This allows the details to work well and the finish is quite easy. The possibilities are great with the walnut and the grain is often superb.

Some news from the bone carving side of the work shop before a wooden update soon:


On the bench


Stylised Hei matau


New Hei tiki with paua eyes


Thank's for looking!
Have a nice day!

Jérôme.
