Hello everyone,

I would like to share with all of you my first tiki in moai style. He is still in progress and i would like to know about your critics (good or bad of course) to empower (if it is possible) my style.

Much better than my first Tiki. Now we have to get you addicted to tools. Lots and lots of expensive tools.
You don't know what you've gotten yourself into, do you?
Great fun!

I remember carving my first few (some that didn't survive because of my choices of wood) that I was very proud of ! You should be too! This is a fine example of ones first carve. Nice start indeed. Now, finish him up. and post pics as soon as possible!

How do you say Mahalo in French?

Salut benella, ton Tiki est trs charmant! Trs, trs bon!

The other guys are realy right, its a great start for the first carving.
Its better than mine! I carved a moai too. Its a great Tiki form to start,
but I think your one looks better.

My college Michael (ramba-zamba) also admired your Tiki.

Especially I like the difference between the carved geometrical parts and the natural parts. Now Im looking forward to see, how you will create the niceties!
What kind of wood do you use and?
What will you do with the bulge on his back? Will you cut it away?
Please, show us the next progress pictures of your moai.
Keep up the good work, we want to see more!

McTiki, "Mahalo" I think its something like "haute estime".

Aloha,

Tiki Duddy: thanks for your compliments.

Hello Tiki: You are damn right: i am dreaming of lots of expensive (and very expensive) tools!

Benzart: it's a great honor to know from you that it's a good start: i've been bitten!

McTiki: Thanks for your encouragements.
Mahalo in french is "haute estime" as said Haikai but it's unfortunately never used.

Haikai: Danke schn fr deine Komplimente!
I use small leaved lime that I found in my mother's garden.
I think i will let the bulge because it could be special and it will be better for the weight equilibrium.


New pics are coming 'cause the guy is changing.

Mahalo

Ben

Hello Benzart,

The tool that is shown is a single use gouge (only the blade is for single use!). I 've got this tool because of my job: i am a podologist. This gouge blade exists in different numbers N1 to N20 i think (1 the smallest and 20 the biggest) The one i use is a N10. I will post pics of that tool soon. Sorry if i disappointed you

Mahalo

Ben

What's a podologist? I yahooed it and it says "one who podcasts" (try it) and I couldn't figure out how a gouge would be used in podcasting.

Great tiki, I don't think you need any criticism you look like you are on the right track. That kind of tiki is tough, but you have a great personal style of it.

JP

Thank you JP for such nice words.

In France it is podologue and I thought it were podologist in USA. In fact, I cure the people who have feetache or footache.

It is a double job because i heal them by cutting (with a gouge or a scalpel) their damaged skins on one side (pedicurie, in France) and on the otherside i relieve their pain with orthopedical soles (podologie, in France too).
For example, a man that feels bad in his back may have an inferior member smallest than the other.

It is quite hard to explain because I'm french but i'm sure it exists in usa.

Mahalo,

Ben.

Welcome Benella - The Moai is coming together nicely!

*The english translation is podiatrist. Good for you, not a job that many could handle but Im sure your efforts are greatly appreciated!

Hope you clean your tools before carving!

Ever thought of carving something into someones' foot? Some sort of toe-tem perhaps?

Ahh, a bit of humor is good for the sole!
