Hey Raffer, this one is looking Great!!. In the winter with the cold temp also comes Very low humidity which sucks the moisture out of wet logs in a hurry. Try covering it with a blanket when you are not working on it.
Can't wait to see this guy. The folded arms will add to his attitud greatly...
Very happyhappyhappy

Raff, you always put a fresh spin on things. It looks really nice with the big solid features... barely noticed the cracks. It will be great to see the legs emerge.

I can't recall if I ever saw a tiki with crossed arms, but I'm sure I must have, because it seems like a natural. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement guys. It makes the scrapes, cuts, and tweaked backs worthwhile.

wow raffertiki, this last one's a real beauty!
It's so cool to see how you've progressed with your carving!

I just bought a tiny little set of chisels, and have a bit of wood from a tree that was taken down in my front yard. I just have to jump in a try it! I'm such a chicken. Should probably wait a bit, it's really wet cryptomeria japonica(japanese cedar) The first nations people around here use cedar for their totems and other carvings, so it might work for me too!

TWahine,

Really, just jump into it. If it doesn't turn out, burn it and chalk it up to experience. No one has to know. Then start again. But I'm sure you'll do fine.

Rodeo,

I'm actually going to try to sell this, either to a surf shop, or a local "Tiki Bar" that doesn't have any tikis. Somewhere where I can get some exposure.

Dude! my favorite of yours so far. I love the crossed arms and the mouth. Does it go all the way through? either way - totally cool!
the surface cracks of the wood add a TON of character - they make it look older.

can't wait to see it finished! It's going to be hard to part with! (unless there is copious amounts of $$$$ waiting...)

Everyone kept saying, "Oak, that's too hard! But I love carving it. It holds the detail well, and I don't have to worry about it crumbling like the softer woods.

No, I chickened out.

Thanks again everyone.
