Since discovering this great forum last week I decided to try out carving a Tiki creature.
Yesterday, a tree lopping gang were hard at removing a Eucalyptus tree nearby, so I was able to obtain 2 logs from them.
The size & the type of wood the logs are I read is not ideal at all, however I'm keen & wanted to get started immediately.
This one took about 8 hours to do. I think his nose looks funny (a Frenchman's moe) but what the hey!
I will chip into the other log sometime this week.
As I reside in a subtropical climate, there are palms everywhere, can't wait to try a palm
Anyone else from Australia?
