Thanks, After i put the two coats of spar on the color looks much better. As far as my next tiki goes, i was thinking of either an Moai or full bod tiki of some sort. I got to look at the logs i have right now and see what will work better. Ill post pics tomorrow of the finished tiki.

Ah yes, he turned out great. Can't wait to see your full body carve. I've been dying to try one myself. By the way, cute kid. One day she will tell her grandchildren about how her dad was a tiki carver. Cool stuff!

Thanks,

I was looking at the logs i have right now, and im not to sure about the full body one. I really want to try it so i might just go for it. the one log is tall and skinny and the other short and fat. Im thinking about using the skinny one. What you all think?

again great carve here brah!! as for skinny or fat thats a toss up! i did my first two full body tikis on stock that was 7and1/2"round (sqr actually)and 39" tall and thought that it was a bit narrow not bad but tight! as for short and fat theres not much room for head,body,legs unless his body position like sitting or kneeling squatin is in your desighn . but should be plenty of meat for arms in cool positions large hands and big feet if that is in your mind! all in all figure out fpr the most part your design and either sketch it on both or visualise wich one will fit better"let the logs pik" and last but not least I would probably lean towards the log thats in the best shape and will hold up to some searious carvin!!! have fun brah and def just go for it!!! cheerz!!

Carvings are coming along nicely, this last head dress was Very nice. Keep carving and everything will keep looking better and better.
Search the web for traditional tikis you like and incorporate some of those looks into your pieces too. Yeah, Whats Next?

Thanks everyone. I hope to start work on the next tiki soon. I think I might need to toss one of my logs. I found alot of what looks like rot on it. So I think for now I will use the shorter fat log and be on the look out for a taller one.

Finally got around to starting the new tiki. Its going to be a head only, still looking for a good log to do the full body. I figured in the mean time i would continue to practice. I got pics coming.
