Here are some updated pics of the first tiki. Finally got around to finishing him

I took the advice from some of you guys here and torched some parts then sanded down.

Oh, and are you still working with coconut? Looks like you're doing pretty good with it!

Thanks everyone. Yea, im still working with coconut only. Its been kinda a pain. I ended up tossing some logs due to exsesive rot. The biggest part that ive have to over come has been the soft pockets in the wood. It seems almost impossible to know where they will be, but every now and then ill end up hitting one and then have to rethink what i want it to look like. Ive been trying to find some sable, but so far no luck. I also was thinking of looking for some pine. The third guy is coming along nicely. Should have some new pics posted soon

I finally got around to start working on the third tiki. So far fo good. Hit a couple of snags here and there with the quaility of the wood, but ive been able to manage around it so far. I decided to go a little more simple on this tiki and try a different style. Im thinking i might add a guatemalen style head dress on him. I saw a similar head dress on a tiki in guatemuala last time i was there.


Rough cuts and before first sanding.


After first sanding


My wife caught a pic of me sketching the head dress.

I like the long schnoz. Many of my carving are also well endowed in this area.

Yea I went with a different style all together the time. It's much more basic, but since I havnt tried anything like this I figured I would try.

Update on head dress. Just doing some of the minor cuts right now. Im going to do the deep set ones later this week, but it will give you an idea of where its heading.

Another update of the work. Alot of small cuts in the head dress so its taking me longer then i thought. But im pretty much done with chiseling now, so on to the sanding. After the sanding im planning on torching some parts and then stain and spar it. Might add a couple of smaller designs into the head dress but we'll see.

Finished carving, sanding, and staining the third tiki. I just put on the first coat of spar today and it altered the color a little, but it still looks reletivly the same. I post some pics when its finished later this weekend.

Finished the sanding and torching


Stain applied

The extra effort you put in this one shows. I like the crisp lines and contrast. What's next?
