Been lurking around here for months and learning to carve. I'm using a ryobi angle grinder with a lancelot wheel for roughing out, and using a growing collection of chisels to finish up. Thanks for all the inspiration and great ideas.

that last photo looks like the tiki is in Outerspace. The tiki appears to float over the table. Right??

I finished a palm tiki today, I think this is my favorite so far. Probably because it carved so easy. I'm finding some palms are better than others.



After two coats of spare urethane, it should be ok outside for a while.

Great work! Glad you came out of lurkdom!

I love the pineapple on the head of the last one.

There is something pretty neat about palm when it is left to age naturally as well. Our neighbor, the one who taught ono the basics has a palm tiki that is aged, gray and wearing. He is just the coolest thing I've ever seen.

Well back in August and September of '04 we had a couple little storms (hurricanes). In the town I live in all I had to do is drive around and pick up all I could off the side of the road.

Do you think it's bad to wish for more storms?

You southern folk are SO lucky...hurricanes, and palms that blow over so easily! Stuff looks great. You sound pretty confident in that Lancelot, no gripes?

The Lancelot IS a little scary at first and it has a tendancy to dig in. But like any other tool, once you use it a while you get used to it. By the way, Harbor Freight has it for a much better price than Woodcraft, so shop around.
