Here's the first attempt which was started at the San Diego Chop Chop at Mieko's in Dec. 2006. The initial sketch is on the yellow pad.



What I learned from this Chop Chop is that I needed better carving tools. It seemed like I was expending way too much energy with my crappy chisels.

I received new FlexCut Chisels as a Christmas Gift. I worked a little bit on the Tiki in December 2006. The new FlexCut tools were like "butter", so I was able to dig a little deeper with ease.

At the next San Diego Chop Chop (Feb. 2007), I started taking out the taking out the teeth. It was starting to look like a jack-o-tiki, so I was somewhat glad that the fiberous mouth area necessitated the gouging out the teeth.

At the next San Diego Chop Chop I was able to make (April 2006), I really started gouging out the mouth area. I started to get a handle of what chisels to use.



Once again the wood determined the direction of the tiki. The area where I initially had a criss-cross pattern above and below the eyes became very fiberous, requiring digging deeper and ultimately the removal of the cross-cross pattern under the eyes.

I also wanted to get rid of the jack-o-tiki look so I modified the nose.

Hey Cheekygirl!
I think you already "finished" your first tiki. It looks like you're carving the one that was underneath it now .
Right on! You're doing great. I can already see how much your technique has improved since the first chopchop. Thanks for the updates.
Now get to work!

Buzzy Out!

One of my favorite things about our monthly Chop is seeing the evolution of this tiki. I really love the way the nose has changed.

I need to post a picture of the current "nose". At the last chop chop it took a scary turn. 4WDtiki approached my tiki and said something like, "Ah, you know what that looks like?" I said, "I know, I need help!" In my panic I called Moki and TikiKate and SpamSandwich over to look at the problem.

I didn't want to be the girl with the tiki with the "tongaroa" inspired nose, if you know what I mean. After a little pow-wow, Spam Sandwich aka TikiDave made a suggestion which salvaged the nose. Unfortunately, as I continued to work on the nose, I hit another fiberous area, necessitating the taking out of even more material.

So long nose short...the nose has taken a kind of "Michael Jackson" quality. I'll post another picture soon.

Hey Cheeky G!

Glad you got the nose figured out. Looking forward to seeing how it's coming along.

Dave (AKA SpamSandwich)
