Thank you everyone for your nice comments.
here are some new shots of that same old tiki but this time there is tatuing on his face and body. i tried to get some pictures that showed them but i'm not sure how well they showed up. most of the tatu is drangons tooth, and a few spirals mixed in here and there. this is the first time i'v tried dragons tooth, it turned out ok. i still have to figure out what i'm going to do with this guys eyes, either put shells in or not.

well Ben you asked and i shall provide. the pictures aren't the greatest i might try again tomarrow. the stain is OK, i think, i'm terrible with picking stain colors. I got the Abalone shells cut some what circluar but not perfect. Cutting the shells are something i don't like to do, so i'm not the greatest at it. i worry about the dust so i try to do it the best i can but as fast as possible. all that is left is to cut it off the base, stain the bottom, clear coated a couple of times. I might make him the first tiki i sell, the first: O'Tiki

Excellent work!

How does one go about carving the Dragon's Tooth? Which chisels work best? Where did you read/learn this method Octane? Love the spirals too... how did you do those?

Thank you Lake.

I got the dragon tooth and instructions how to do about 4 different types of Maori tatuing from a book called "the art of Maori carving" i found the book in my schools library (thanks to the help of TikiTony) not sure how widly avaible the book is. i photocopyed the pages that had the instructions, and i had some one try to scan them today so i could email them to you or any one else that wanted them, but the scanning did work right. i will keep trying and if or when i get them i will send you a personal message, so i can email them to you. any one else that wants them can send me a personal message as well.

here is just a picture of the page on the dragon tooth (with out the written explination)



here is another part with a few more styles (again with out written explination)


the siprals aren't that bad. there are kind two way to due them. first you have to draw it out, which if i could get you the scan would show you 3-4 varieties.

here is a picture of the page with the spirals, maybe this will work



the first technique (proper way i beleive)you just use the the chissel with the V shape, on a slight tilt, so the side (of the V chissel)closest to the center is almost striagt up, while the part of the chissel away from the center is out at an angle, then you just follow your lines.

another way that works is to draw out your spiral, use the V shaped chissel (normally, no tilit) and carve out your lines, the come back with another chisel (the one i have used isn't flat, but instead a really flat half round (mine is from a little palm carving set) you take this chisel and start on the outside of the curve and slant back down in towards the middle.

i hope this helps, its kind of hard to explain, if you have any questions let me know, and i will try to get those pages scanned for you.

well i started my next project today. It like the last one is Maori, except this one is a flat pannel. i didn't have alot of wood in the garage except a peice of poplar. i have never carved poplar, but it is nice and soft compared to the ash base ball bat blanks. the only problem is how well it will stain and hold detail.
