Great new carves Watango, great looking pieces plus you are a master at finishing. Also I am salivating at that new hunk of lumber. Endless possibilities!

You're a regular carving madman lately Watango! Nice chops on all the latest pieces, and those are some hefty logs.

Nice variety of wood lately, and that's a good thing. It teaches you flexibility in carving, and when you switch from hardwoods to palm you can really go to town.

Keep on carving!

Howdy Tcers,Here's a shot of the logo my buddy Lluis did for our new tiki gang,should be cool to
hang out over maitai's and celebrate all things tiki.

And a few pics of my 1st attempt at carv'n him,will have to do a few more of these hopefully so I can
see this design fine tuning itself along the way.Cheers Watango

I like it! If you do another, I suggest cutting the log in half. I've found that you can get a better representation of a graphic image when you don't have to worry about the back. Most illustrations don't take the third dimension into thought

Aloha station-Glad you like this guy and thanks for the handy tip on split'n the log
in two which makes more sense as i did struggle a bit on working out how to wrap
the design around the log.The next one will be a wall hang'n piece for sure and another
bonus to this is I can get two pieces out of the one log, Sweet!!Thanks again.Cheers Watango

I love the design with the rounded eyes, and you carved it very nicely by curving them in in the middle - it adds quite a lot of character to the piece! Splitting the log in half is a great idea and you're right - twice the amount of tikis for one piece of wood! You did a great job on the full round, using the entire log and I think you successfully transferred that 2d design into a tiki that can stand guard by the entrance to your club's tiki hut!
