Great job on him. Love the ebony finish and it polished up like glass.

Thanks Cy, 5150, my mate Amate and 'giles! I appreciate your thoughts--I wasn't sure if this carving was going to hit the mark. I generally don't use ebony stain and it seems to take a lot of work to achieve a consistent and deep finish, so it doesn't look painted. I think sanding and re-staining is rather addictive and I may turn this into a life-long project.

A few more shots and we're on to some other spring chizzlin'.

Great one! I see you are exploring new grounds too,
cheers to that, maybe not so comfortable like doing the same over and over,
but I think is what makes us learn the most, the uncertain paths..
That sometimes we do regret taking..
but if you get there, you are a lot more rich and experienced than before

Aloha to AlohaStation--

yes--roots are good! Although I "drifted" to chisel things that may be more appealing
in the northwoods of Wisconsin--the whole "tiki" thing (Polynesian, modern, tiki pop, etc)
is what got me interested in carving in the first place.

Plus--this place is still filled with a lot of inspiration to suck me back into tikis or at
the very least--tiki-inspired carvings.

Thanks!

Thanks Big T. Yes, spring is here in Northern Wisconsin, overnite temp will be about 25 below zero.
This is a club, but I believe it's only good for one whack. Is it tiki?

This little whacker is inspired by stuff in the "Pacific Encounters" book, but a little twisted as usual.
Peace and thanks for looking...bigger stuff coming when the weather breaks.

That's really good.
Now that's how you loose the shape of the wood.

Thanks Will and Nicework, I appreciate your visit and your kind words.

And Nicework, thanks also for digging through my fairly lengthy thread, happy
that I can offer a little bit of inspiration. Most of my finished works can
be found on page one....just in case anyone else is interested.

Was just gifted some really nice chunks of dry cedar..early progress pics coming
soon as i attempt to turn one into a tiki.
