E-bay always has a ton of wood for sale at decent prices. I have found a lot. The exotic's are beautiful, but much harder to carve. You're doing great with pine and your Exacto blades. "If it Ain't broke, don't fix it", so keep on with the pine. You have anything else in the works?

Thanks for all the warm welcomes!

Benzart, I have a few logs laying around waiting to be carved, but I need a new arrange of tools first. Just don't think the xacto knives will "cut" it...

I'm trying to start on a series of small tiki's, but I'm a little short on time right now.

Give me a couple of more days and I will be able to show more work

Nice piece too. Clean!

Park Buzzy, maybe the scene here is very underground because I haven't seen any signs of a real scene yet. Past summer I saw vague signs of something forming, but all the rain in august washed that vibe away.

Most of the time when I talk about tiki's, people get this blank look in their eyes.

This little tiki was actually "commisioned" for a friend, as to be installed as a shiftstick. (hotrod fan) I will surely post pictures when it's installed, can hardly wait myself.

Some new stuff, far from finished


I've been lurking around on this forum for a while and got inspired by Basement Kahuna & Tikimecula's clubs
This is my try, extreme fun



Hopefully one of you can answer this question for me, are chisels of this kind as expensive in the US as they are here in belgium?

These kind of prices depress me

Hey youbaba,

I'm impressed with the 3 tikis you showed today on your first picture. Very great work.

I agree completely with what you wrote about people when you talk about tikis. I think it is an european problem

Where do you come from in Belgium ? My wife has just fell in love with Brugge.

What type of wood did you use ?
What will be the final color ?

Ben.

Benella, maybe we should plan a Tiki raid on central europe, together with HaiKai from Germany? I'm from Antwerp, now all we need is the dutch.
But they're probably too busy making clogs...

All the wood is pine, some bought, some scavenged

Hi Yubaba! Great work! Are those new ones pine or basswood? They look great!

Chisels are pretty expensive, but you don't need a 20 piece set to begin with. In the US you can find straight chisels at the hardware store. I actually started with these 3 chisels for $10.
http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS/EN_US/diy_main/pg_diy.jsp?CNTTYPE=PROD_META&CNTKEY=misc%2fsearchResults.jsp&BV_SessionID=@@@@0426372712.1165562453@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccfcaddjihlgllgcgelceffdfgidgio.0&MID=9876

Hopefully you can find something similar. After you've worked with those, you can branch out into gouges, I've got 4 to begin with, and they're very helpful, and ran about $120. Most things you can do with the straight ones, it just takes a lot longer than the expensive chisels.
