Thanx Benz! It's a good thing there's little difference between black walnut and English chestnut stains! No. 7 has no stain, really a cool looking piece of wood with all the worm holes and color all its own. So here's #1,7 & 6 left to right finished...


#'s 7 & 6 closer...

You're right, that stain job really came out nice. I really love the Wormy Chestnut too, How was that to carve?

Yeah! I get to see the 7 ft. Witco live tonight! I'll help TD post some pix with his new camera if I can! Thanx Duddy, got the pattern idea from one of Benz's Tikis. Getting started this weekend on next one that is "bought" already. Using a mug from TBOT as a model. (See if you can figure out which one later). Benz, the wormy one was an easy carve, because I started with a 16 inch chain, then merlin 2 inch chain, 2 inch sanding discs on merlin, done. Used sanding sealer for the first time, too, then sparred it.

Well... it's been a few months since my last update, so I hope this is good enough. No. 8 is done... The weather here has been anti-Tiki every time I have time and could work outside... until the last few weeks. Actually warm here for Turkey Day! Bummer was that this pear wood one split down the middle after I was done carving it. I was so distrought... that I had to save him. I caulked the cracks with clear Alex, and it kind of looks like wax in there. I hope that the eventual owner won't be too disappointed, and think it looks cool...

Well, it's been a really long time for a carving post for me, and regrets for sure! First it was too cold to do it, now it's too hot! Well here is... what I've done so far this year:

Here's me on Pelee in March starting on a real rotten piece of black walnut.

Start of the rough-out when the motor on the rotary Merlin burned up, causing a three month delay on the project...

It morphed a bit do to more than expected dry rot...

It's getting there, almost done...


Ahh, a finished #9 Tiki!

My next victim, a far less rotty piece of "blonde" black walnut...

Double 15 minute cheapy-Tiki in rotten cottonwood just for fun and practice with my new Lancelot grinder...

Thanx Benz! I'm very guilty of not following your or anyone's thread lately, but at least I'm carving....

Here are some pix of finished Tiki #10 and newest Tiki #11.

This one has a head full of corkscrew willow hair...


Here's #11 using a log from Tiki David's collection of Florida palms, a six footer and going full 'round. Using a 4 1/2 inch, 22 tooth lancelot circular chain saw w/grinder on this piece to start... Goggles and dust mask recommended!
