I'm almost done with the 2 Faced Tiki, now the sanding begins. Any suggestions with it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for the props.
When I'm finished sanding I think I will add a nose ring to the second side.

NICE! How did I miss this thread. Great idea, very original. Stain that bad boy up, and let's see it. They're all lookin' good.

I guess I have the nerve to post pictures of my first chainsaw/angle grinder Tiki. I did this about a month ago and was unhappy with the outcome. So I went small to practice. Criticism is welcome please!




I guess I feel comfortable here to show my junk.
GMAN- I guess those logs will have to wait a little, huh.

No way Wes. You're ready.

Just think about what you want to see and make it happen. On the tiki above, it looks like you didn't spend much time on the lips/mouth or different layers. Think of your carving as a series of layers. The more layers the better it will look (within reason). Start with the higher points, like the headdress, eyebrows, nose, eye cups, lips etc. Then carve deeper in for other layers such as the teeth, forehead, and maybe the eye details. It's all experimentation and finding what works for you. It sounds like you have a ton of wood now, so have at it. Be safe and spend some time learning what works for you. I can't wait to see how your style evolves.

I see what you mean about levels. As I look at this and from what I've learned doing the smaller ones. I'm so obsessed with carving when I speak with coworkers I look at their faces and think how would I go about carving it in wood. Do you think I should go back and fix that one or toss it inthe fireplace??

moondance...I really like the lines and style of your
two faced tiki...and the first one...it's alright for an
early effort...keep it to show how much you've progressed.
sounds like you've got the bug too...when I'm not selling
cars at work i'm sketching my next carving...everyone
thinks I'm nuts...but they like 'em!

My coworkers think I'm insane because of my obsession of tikis. Yet they all have asked for one.

Yes Moondance, keep up the carving and keep the old ones. They are reminders of how much you have learned and how far you have come. Can't wait til the next ones come out.
