Thanks guys!! I appreciate the feedback .... So on to the next one .... this is the whimsical one, I'm calling him the "heads up tiki!" ....



.... this one is a break from the traditional stuff .... I hope I can pull it off!



... and fishin Friday turned out to be quite fun today! I started a little Lono and caught some fish .... so that was cool ...



.... but the best part was when my little friend Emily wanted to carve! She is a natural! She threw that 18 ounce mallet around like it was a feather! I'm very proud of her ...! And she asked for her own log so she can carve her own tiki!




Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

So a friend of mine tells me yesterday that he wants his fan palms taken out before they get too big and unmanageable ... he hates them! Then he decides he wants tikis carved into them... So I might be stripping these two down and carving into them ... he pretty much wants them dead! I'm not to cool with carving into the live ones, but if he is going to chop them down anyway then I might as well make some nice art for his yard ....



I figured I'll take off the top 3 feet of the short one and maybe five feet off the top of the tall one, strip them down and then figure out what to carve ...

Wow! Been a while since I posted here .... had to dig way deep on this list to even find my thread!

Some more work on the lono ... trying to hit some detail on this one that I haven't tried before. This log is nice and compact and carves like hardwood so hopefully the tiny details will not chip off ...









I'm off to Maui next week to swim with the fishes .... going to take my tools with me and try to find a banyan log to carve. Gonna see if there might be an impromptu chop chop going on at the beach and join in with some local carvers .... or maybe I'll be the one to start one up!

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Tiki Day!

Did some more work on the "Heads Up" tiki ..... I decided to nix the Xed out eyes ... he's lost his head, he's not drunk! ... (If this all seems like deja vu that's cause I posted the same thing on facebook!)






Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Had a great trip to Maui ... I did find a chunk of hard wood to carve but found a vein of rot where the nose would go! So I carved a couple coconuts instead .... those are not easy to carve, especially wet ones!

So, my little friend Emily found a stick at the lake so we decided she needed a "Tiki Wand" .... it's 14 inches long .... Harry Potter doesn't have anything like this!




Thanks for stopping ....
I'll be back on the chisels tomorrow!
