I Agree with JT, this odd shaped piece of wood has brought out the Best in you. This piece really Flows. When you have to work to make it all fit right, it seems you get a little something Extra. Very well done. I Love it.

You took out all the "log" and all that's left is tiki. That's a fine piece, Lake. Lots of character and it's not even done.

I agree. I'd be damn proud of that one LakeSurfer. Are you still gonna make a fountain out of it?

Thanks all for the kind words! I'm happy with it but in my mind I have a long way to go yet... or not... I have to look at it more... I'm my worst critic... that whole trip...

As for a fountain... I don't know yet... I think the mouth is too low for the two bowls I wanted the water to flow in... I may do a thinner log that's taller for the fountain.

"You took out all the "log" and all that's left is tiki."

I like how that sounds! It was sort of my goal but when you have that much wood it seems like an overwhelming task... especially with chisels... the twist and bend in the log was a challenge, but in nature you take what you can get!

Jimmy... the palm is next! I have it on the carving bench I just have to come up with a design... it is a special log so I want to carve a special tiki out of it...

Lake Surfer -

Are your shelves for sale? I like the bamboo-trimmed shelves you posted a while back...do you have a site/contact info where I can order?

Thanks

Looks good Lake, nice job.

Stick to the Pine. Too many negatives with palm from what I've learned, and I've learned the hard way. Palm is not all it's cracked up to be in "my own humble opinion". It molds, is stringy as you say, it rots, is extra heavy until it dries, is very splintery, attempting detail work sucks with it and it is hard as hell to de-bark.

Hell, I just spent $938.00 getting (11) 5' clean peeled white pine logs freighted to me and there is free palm all around me here. That should tell you my feelings on palm right there. Wish I had a local supply of pine as you guys, just as you wish you had the palm....go figure.

The big sucker rocks!

Rip, Tear and Lacerate.......

That has probably got to my favorite Tiki I have ever seen!
Its all bent and moving like its alive and drunk and looking for a little wahine to drink with.........cool!
The belly all fat and greasy is a great touch.....GREAT JOB Mr. Surfer!
