now that you mention it Bill............it does look like a castle wall.
thanks for the advice. I'll trim it when I go back to carve the next one.

just finished #6 of 6 "in the ground" TiKis

all basic carves I think, a little bit different than carving on a horizontal log though

they were fun to carve...I'd like to do more

Thanks Grand Poobah. I haven't posted a finished pic of the last TiKi because I had some trouble with the staining process and had to sand it down after staining. The stain went on un-evenly and looked bad.
Here is a photo of mask that was experimenting with though. I've got some queen palm logs that aren't that great, so I cut this one in half to see if a mask would look OK.

I need a couple of taller TiKis for a friends booth at the Pacific Islander Festival next weekend in San Diego.......so I had this guy that I had given up on and never finished. He has just been hangin' out in the back yard.


spent a few hours today .....some chainsaw, some angle grinder, some chisels, some stain, and I think he just might work!
