Hi everybody!
After a year of pesching rain and driech weather in Scotland I have now returned to you.
The carving goes very slow since I'm not often in the garage these days.
Anyway, I got some questions about affixing some shots of my tools, so here they are:



Until now I have been using Black & Decker angle grinder [1] with some coarse sandpaper wheels.
(In the start I used some really vicious Excalibur blades (chainsaw looking) on the grinder,
but when the thing started to unscrew itself while I worked I had it. I was just too dangerous.



I am using a wireless Dremel tool [2] for ornamentation and details,



and I have been using a slightly bent chainsaw [3] This one is understandably quite biased,
and the chain keeps falling off.

I'm also posting the latest progress on my first born Tiki, so you can have a look on how things are progressing.
Like I say, this will take a while

Hey Clarita. I took a look at your myspace and the candles are fantastic.
Are you selling the them?
I loved the background music too.
Great surf. Gotta go and find some records of the band.

Hard to carve with a Bent Chain saw? Looks like you're doing pretty well. Good luck and Keep us updated.

Hi guys, here's Kong Tiki!
I'm happy with the outcome, even if it took some time for us to get there.
Hope you like him.



Standing, but still raw.



Here I have added roach control. Makes the wood look good.



Lastly I painted him with Trebitt (Mahogany color), a Norwegian color base,
that is a bit transparent so the wooden texture gets a little visual.



And here's the final outcome

MY TIKI IS EXHIBITED AT THE WORLD FAMOUS KON-TIKI MUSEUM, AT BYGDY, OSLO THIS SUMMER!
The Kon-Tiki museum is founded by internationally recognized explorer and anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl and it is a great honor to have my work exhibited at this incredible museum. To read more about the exhibition please follow this link:

- The flyer above is not the official.
I made it for the fun of it and to attract some attention.
