I figured that a new year deserved a new thread. I think in my mind it seems like a new start or something, I don't know. If you wish to view my previous art, here is the link to my first art thread http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=10711&forum=7.

This is a pendant I started on a while back. I still want to put another coat of stain on him and use a darker cord, but basically he's complete.




My company laid me off this whole coming week, so hopefully I will get a lot of carving done. Thanks for looking!

Hey Fink, Nice pendant, too bad about the corp layoff thingy though. We expect to see 7 days worth of carving coming up.

That's great stuff. Really nice.
When you carve in miniature, do you use a small vise? Or do you hold them in your hand while carving?
I always wondered how you keep da buggah still.

That tough guy look makes the piece. A whole week to carve guess that makes the best of the situation.

Wow, thanks everybody! No worries about the lay off thing, I thinking of it as a semi-paid vacation.

HelloTiki, I know Benzart is going to cringe when I tell you this, but I just hold the wood in my hand, which of course leads to much bloodletting.

Here is the next pendant I'm working on. I'm probably going to work on the eyes a bit more, but when I add any small detail it just gets lost in the crazy zebra wood grain. I'm also not quite sure what to do with the very top (the part you would see if you were looking straight down on it). I'll most likely just sand him smooth and coat him with some poly to make the grain stand out. The pictures don't look as good as he does in person. The cuts don't look as deep for some reason.

Mahalo!

Doggone finkdaddy, you're carving up some little marvels here. I'm liking your work a lot.

Thanks Foamy! Have you seen the pics of your Tiki Leisure set hanging in the Leeward Lounge? They look awsome! Everybody who visits asks me tons of questions about them. Thanks again. Hang in there, I'm still working on our story.

I've dicided to try something more traditional, so I'm going to attempt a lono from a piece of Black Walnut that Benzart gave me. Don't laugh when it turns out competely different than what I intended!





Thanks for looking!

Here are #8 and #9 all finished up and on their way home. The poly really made that zebra wood look great.

I've been talking to Mr. Predicta lately and he's having me draw up some designs that I might wind up carving for the tiki model Pridicta TVs!
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=12472&forum=1 I'll post anything that might happen with that.

Thanks for looking!

Those look great and carved very clean. They look terrific under macro mode.
