Wonderful spare time project. Was this all hand chiseled?

Thanks, Gary...You're unstoppable, man. I have two 7-foot 13" half-rounds in Basswood, a 5-foot 23-inch diameter pine log, a 7-foot, 18 inch diameter pine log, and a ton of nice, thick poplar and basswood 3x's from 4 to 7 feet and 18 to 24 inches wide. I have to complet a lot of deposited comissions on jewelry and clubs before I start. I'll probably embark on one of the big logs to try and get some rental stuff going for spring and summer, then start on my next epic Maori panel (that'll be available at Hukilau: Hint-it'll be a full sized one! I'm admittedly homesick for the big tikis right now!

P.S. Johnny roughed out with an electric chainer, then chisels take over for the long haul and finish. I'm a chisel devotee mostly.

Great-Beautiful-Bouncing-Baby-Big-Woody, there BK!!! W-O-W! and in your sparetime at that?...really tough to keep the ol'chizle in your pocket no doubt?!! Seriously folks, I'm new to floppin 'round TC and the artist community here is jaw-dropping! I'm fortunate to stumble into Basement Kahuna's thread and catch his boneworks. My knee jerked to see if I could get on a reserve list...MAHALO BK for makin' time! I have since read-thread-reverse to see the TRUE diversity of your talents AMAZING!!! 'Nuff said!

Alot of posts to read and I hope to meet more artisan's on my walk-about.

CHEERS! --TravelingJones

Thanks, Jones...You're promoted to assistant VP (And just meet me outside and I'll slip you the fifty bucks... ) The talents here are pretty amazing for the obscurity of our TC community. These people are rock stars in their own right. I'm still pretty wowed by being around the talent and diversity here. Sometime I don't feel worthy of the company! If you like, check out the old carving post at the top of the page for some background on how "Creating Tiki" got started. Those were the early days around here, and much like today, we were just feeding off each other's creative energy and whatever sources of inspiration we could get our hands on. What has come along since is just amazing...there are a lot of "natural" carvers here...born to do it. Some of the people's first pieces that come along here just amaze me. It's a great art form, and one that lasts.

"I did this in my spare time"......sh-t...I couldn't do that with ALL my time.
Just beautiful. I love the dark stain.

Thanks all...here's a Sali (Fiji) I just finished...this an off-commission piece which I'm using for the Coontiki finishing demonstration, so it will be for sale right after the seminar. It is one of my nicer Salis...This is usually a very crude, simple club; more refined examples like these were used as dance clubs or chief's weapons. This piece is carved in cherrywood.

BK, That's about as fine of a club as I have seen from you yet. Excellent, true detail. Cherry is the Absolute Best wood for sharp detail. Love it.

It is the tops..hard to find clear, thick, and free of cat eyes. I got sort of luck a few years back and got two very nice pieces of it...this last piece gave me two club blanks, this being one of them.

BK,

Nice club; very sweet finish. What's up with the chickens man? Do you eat those or fight them?
