Really killer stuff, man. Dig it.

What kind of wheel(s) do you use on your grinder? I just got a grinder and haven't played with it much - I think the chisels are going to get jealous.

I just use the coarsest discs I can get at Home Depot, I forget if they're 24g or 36g.

Here's a piece of Koa I've been working on for about a week. I'm sanding today, then ready for stain.

A week? A WEEK!?!?! It would take me a month and a half to get to that point and it wouldn't look half as good. Nice work...

Thank you guys!
Here's the finished Tiki.
It's a 30" tall piece of Koa that grew about ten miles from my house.


It has a great grain, but it's hard to see with the shine from the wax/oil finish.


You can see the grain better in this shot.
It's a real nice carving wood.


Thanks for looking!

Thanks amate!

I don't do small, but i always get asked for small Tikis, so I thought I'd give it a try.
This is the smallest carving ever by me at 16".

It's Koa again, which carves reeaally nice, BTW.
Turns out I'm having a blast carving this guy! I love the way it's turning out, and am already planning more little pieces! I just need smaller tools.
