I love the swing and sway this tiki has going.
Awesome work.

Ben, bigger is better as far as I'm concerned. I just need to hire a troll to move the logs for me. Damn wood is heavy.

Thanks Rodeo, yeah, I was hoping it would go for more, but there was a little bidding war going on for it, so I'm happy.

Thanks Surfin.

Pablus, I think that swing and sway has a lot to do with the chilly willies going on here. Hopefully he'll still have his groove come spring time.

Thanks all for the encouragement. The search for a new log is ongoing.

I picked up another log yesterday. I thought I was gonna get help, but it was free so I can't complain. This one measures 5'8" by 18" wide. I can't wait to start carving, but I tweaked by lower back. My chiropracter is gonna love me, but I think I need to rethink the big logs.

Jeez Raff, be careful buddy. You know how those old back injuries are - they just never go away (and yours isn't that old either). How were you moving it, anyways?

Aaron, they pointed to the far end of the property and said, "Take what you need." I soon realized I was getting no help, so I found the only log I could maybe handle, backed the Rav4 as close to it as I could, then managed to stand it up and "walk it" until I could tip it in. I realized how out of shape I actually am from sitting on my ass all winter, but I wasn't leaving empty handed.

Ben, you know pics are coming. I'm going to try to sell this to a restaurant that claims to have a tiki bar out back in the summer, but has no tiki to speak of.

Sounds like all you have to do is tell him about that group of customers who were laughing because there were No Tikis in the TIKI Bar. Then tell him you just Happen to make them in your spare time and for the right price you'll fix him up

I drove home after work today and found three five-plus foot oak logs beside my driveway. I turns out my friend Fuzzy Bob left 'em for me.

Pretty damn cool.

Thats really nice when you find the log gifts. I used to have a few trimmers that would drop off logs on their way to the dump. Just by the size and cuts and tools used I could narrow it down to the doner. They were always surprised I knew who each pile was from. I had the best log pile of any of the south Fla carvers. They would come around mooching wood from me.
What ya' gonna do with them thare Oaken logs boy? Yer gonna show us pitchersalong the way, right?

This one's been taking a while, hence the surface cracks and wood filler. I can't beleive how quickly this wood dried out, it was wet when I started.



Still it's turning out half decent and is my most ambitious piece so far. It measures 5'8".



I still need to carve out the legs and feet, and some detail work, and much more staining.
