I've been sanding all weekend, and still more to go. This one turned out to be bashful and demanded a loin cloth which I still have to work out a pattern to carve into. That and toes and maybe I can stain him by next weekend.



He thinks he's looking pretty badass.

Woah Sandy, you Have been Sanding a Lot I see. This guy is realy turning out Nice. It's funny how these guys, to whom yo have just given life, are so demanding and ask for rediculous things like a loin cloth. Just who does he think he is a god or something?
I really like this one raffer.

That's a beaut... pine log?

Looks like another one back there trying to push himself on you before you finish this one...

Keep up the dedicated great work... always great to see another carver's work from the northern reaches of the country!

A wooden loin cloth, that's a twist! Besides, it avoids all that embarrasing sanding later. A nice carved tapa pattern on the cloth, and you'll have a very unique tiki. I think you carve from a painter's perspective, & that's cool, Raff.

Thanatos, you're doing just fine. I just keep trying different things to try to find my "voice" as a carver anyway. This is my detail attempt.

Thanks Ben. I always get a surprise outcome from each one. All part of the tiki magic I guess.

Sam, you well know that the practice is in the doing.

Thanks Lake Surfer. Oak.

Aaron'sA, I'm torn between tapa or a floral design. That's funny because I'm starting to paint like a carver.

Thanks Rodeo. Me too.

Despite Oasis, tiki is being created this day. More carving, more sanding, and finally a coat of stain. Who'm I kidding, I'd rather be at Oasis, but this is the next best thing.



Oh, and his name is Woo the Protector.

WOw, Mr Woo looks like he is ready to Woo the Women. Isn't it nice to see the results of all that sanding come out in a nice smoothe finish? This one is really nice raffer. The diffficulty of the folded arms didn't seem to bother you at all. Way to go.
