Great stuff Benz, I too like the full body tiki. Its funny I have carved a few small tikis for some friends and I think they take just as long as the big ones. I noticed in one of your photos it looks like you have a flex shaft carver. I was going to buy a foredom to play around with but they are kind of spendy. I was wondering if you knew if the cheap versions are worth buying or should I just spend the big bucks and get the foredom. I thought you might know.

Thanx keigs.
Yeah I have an Old Foredam here, something a cheap version will never be. If it means not being able to get one, go for the generic version. But, when you become acoustomed to it, you'll end up buying a good one anyway.
Of course there are some good Inexpensive shafts out there. What is your primary use going to be , a rotary or recriprocating tool? I'll do some research and get back to you about it.

The truth is I dont know how much I would use it. Probably mostly for rotary. Usally the stuff I carve has no need for a lot of detail because after I burn it it disapears anyway. It would be just for fun something to kill time at night when I get the urge to carve and cant because of noise. But you are right, might as well buy the good stuff because sooner or later I would anyway. Thanks for the info if you find out more I am all ears.

Keigs, check out E-bay for Flex Shaft tools, Here is a link to a decent deal http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2695209122&indexURL=2#ebayphotohosting. Old but add new brushes and good for another 20 years.
Another one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2695845539&category=34087

The Fun begins when you turn it on. You can get Recip handpieces for the foredom too.

OK, I can't stand it, I gotta get on your list. Your work is true proof of the infinite variety Polynesian art offers. Each piece like no other.
I just made a good sale on e-bay, please whittle me a baby, Moko face, Marquesan, or Moai, I love them all.
In case you didn't get my book yet, I send you one with the moolah.

Thanx bigbrotiki.
No I didn't get your book but I'd Love one and you are now on the list at # 14.
Damn, I'll never get stuff done for HukiLau'04 at this rate.
I Have Registered and paid Vendor dues for Hukilau 2004 and I will be there with hopefully a Good selection of goodies in several forms.
In the mean time however, TCrs come first
Thanks Again

Nice fishey, yes you should be coming up pretty soon. I have'nt been carving because of the surgery, but starting yesterday I,m free to do what I want, so I'm in full swing now.
