AlohaStation - yeah, it's probably time to do a full body...I'm still practicing carving deep and getting clean lines.

hey bro, if you click on this and scroll about half way down on this page (which is page 94 of Buzzy's thread) he gives a short tutorial on how he cuts the body. I found it helpful back when I started doing bodies, hopefully it'll come in handy.

keep on truckin!

Thanks pjc5150! It definitely gives me some ideas. I still have plenty on the one I'm working on right now, maybe I'll make it full size...

the under-bite puts the fierceness factor over the top. I like the way you do teeth, and I like the forehead crest bits as well. My wife just asked "what are you grimacing about?" I replied that I was grimacing like the tiki heads I was admiring. She thought I was staring at a spider on the wall or some such. That there is what you call a testimonial!

I've just started another - I'm going to use this one as a shift knob for my car.

It's cherry, roughly 2 1/4 x 5.

I'm may offer resin copies later, the product mimics the wood grain rather nicely.

Obviously it's still in the working phase, I have a lot to do...the cherry is kill my knives.

Another WIP shot. Nowhere near done, but you get the general idea.

Another one, it's getting cleaner and a bit more cut.

...almost done...

Here's one more of the cherry shift knob.

I need to finish the teeth, level out the base and then one more light round of sanding.

I added a body to my most recent maple tiki.

Not sure if he's laughing or just ate some bad shrimp the night before.

I've finally completed the cherry shift knob. Now it's time to find either a t-nut or rubber grommet and attach it to the shifter arm.

I've started something quite a bit bigger - the biggest I've tried to date.

It's still rough and I'm undecided on if the mouth should be open or closed. I have big plans for the sides/back - we'll see if I follow through.
