Here's the next project - something small to try out some new Flexcut tools in preparation for Coon Tiki next month. He is 'paddle man', modeled after a petroglyph on Kilauea in Hawaii.

That's a neat idea. You could do a bunch of different ones, like the turtle and canoe!

yeah i'm a fan of the paddle man as well. It's, dare i say....Sleek and sexy? Small and cute! I love it. The ELF tiki was funny as well, although the 2nd tiki you created is my personal favorite, it just has that polynesian feel to it. Keep up the good work, man!

Finished!



PS: No power tools were harmed in this project. It was only a hook knife and a coping saw.

Actually, I guess I hit it with a dremel brush, just to sort of dust it off...but I didn't hurt the brush

This is Spearman. He's the companion to Paddleman. Another petroglyph in Hawaii. He's not done yet, but there is some progress. Take a look please, and I'd appreciate some guidance on sanding. Should I sand it at all, or leave him 'au natural' with chisel marks? It's hard to see in these pictures, but he's really quite smooth. When I stain and poly the walnut, I hope to see more detail in the pictures.

Thanks for any comments...

Tikigap, I don't know how I missed this "Spear man" but he is really cool. I hope you are going to do a whole series on these Petroglyphs, as you have already done 2 more than anyone else ever did, I think. I would have sanded it before the sealer, using a rotary sanding bit for the flexshaft, although the chance for the tool to destroy such a delicate piece is about 98%, so you would have to be careful. Really neat! I can't wait to see the whole set of what, 500 pieces??.

Wow! That's a challenge for sure! I have a few ideas for a 'few' more... Thanks for the tips on the finish. I'll try that on the next one.

Thanks for looking.

Oh dammm.

I got hurt tonight - first time. Like Swanky, I got a couple of knuckle scrapes, but tonight I got a good one!

I might need a stitch or two!

But the red looks good on the walnut!

We eill have None of that now. When you are cutting into a piece of wood, STOP and chack out the second angle you can cut from, Theres Always 2. Make sure your fingers are NOT in the path of the blade, or it WILL get you. I will explain more at the seminar.

I'm okay - no stitches. It's a jab tho. It's kinda a badge of honor. I shudda been jabbed before. It just happenned tho... I knew it was gonna jab me about 1 second before it happened. I watched it happen! It was wierd! It was totally avoidable!

The power of the chisel!
