Finally worked up the courage to start a thread of my carvings!

For my first showing, I chose a tiki I worked on at the January SD Chop Chop. It is Mexican Fan palm, and stands at 5 feet tall. This tiki has two new techniques for me. First, it has my first use of an actual carving chisel. The uppermost portion was done using a curved chisel- ")", borrowed from Clysdalle. Thanks, man! The second new technique is I burned it using Mapp gas, recommended by...Clysdalle! Using Mapp gas vs propane, is like a jet engine vs a candle.





4WD, cool stuff, don't tell me you belong to 80scool.

these are quite remarkable 4WD...don't know how i missed this thread till now. Lots of personality
coming out of these guys, especially the one you sold at the yard sale. He's really got the
attitude. And the big one in the background on your first pic...is that the one that was
being loaded (or unloaded) on a truck in the "Chop Chop" thread?

Thanks for props, Conga. Good eye, yes, that is the one fron the chopchop thread. I chiseled away the top couple inches of bark to put some sort of "hair" on it, but I'm not sure what I'm going to use. Pics to follow if I figure it out.

More tikis.
Here's the only one I keep in the house. It's about 2' tall, and is coated with spar urethane. A basic face that came out well, IMO.

This is one of my favorites, it's about 5', and lives on the patio.

Here's the current project. It will reside in my wife's cousin's backyard. Looks small in these pics, but it's actually 8 feet 5 inches! The headress going down the back will remain bark.

haha, for some reason that tall guy looks like he's the size of a pencil. He's looking really good, I love the detail on the headdress.

The gigantic dude is looking cool, 4WD! When you post more pictures, put yourself (or your 80scool ) in the shot to show just how big that behemoth really is! I hope to carve one that size one day.

Thanks to all for the compliments.

Here's an update on "the big one". I finished staining it today. I will be putting some satin spar varnish on in the next few days. Sorry Dave, I forgot to put myself in the pic for scale.



I can't wait to stand it up, but that may not happen til my 'assistants' show up at the next Chop!

4wheel.....Awesome man!

Wished I was going to be there for the razing. The map gas use looks good on this guy...like the way the back side was addressed. Props.

Wow, thanks guys!
I'm so thrilled with the way this one is turning out. It's gonna be real imposing when finally standing.
Hope to have the next progress shot on Wednesday, stay tuned...
