Thanks Hiltiki and Surfin!

alright, havent posted in a couple days. just havent got a chance to really get on the cpu.
here's a new face i started:








and here's the OTHER piece i started.
i've had this chunk in my room for too long. it's time to carve it!
here's the pics as of noon today:



ANNNND here's the ShrimpTail...without the srhimpyness
while i was sanding some of the headdress came off completely.
so i had to make some minor changes, it's for the best-this way i can wrap a string around the top better for a necklace:







a lot of pictues today lol.
that's it for now!

by the way, anybody know what's better to carve; Ash or Oak?
i got a couple BIG logs comming my way from a guy in town, he has both

already better than a lot of new carves and even some long time ones. The cuts are deep and thats the only way to really do it up.

Nice cuts in the big log, it will be a nice piece for sure.

I don't know about ash but oak is hard as hell (sorry for the family site !).

Good luck,


Benjamin.

TD, I just got on here this am., and read this entire posting. I've wanted to try carving myself, but I'm afraid it would be another thing that I start and never continue with. It's great to come on here and see someones progress and you sure have done a lot of nice looking tikis. And I love your work on the stones and smaller ones. Keep it up and you'll be as good as Benz.

Man, those are some solid logs you scored! If you're anything like me, you'll sit on 'em a while (not literally) until they tell you what they want to be carved into, but don't make us wait too long. You've already got the makings of a great tiki on this latest one with just a couple of well-defined cuts - looks like you're pretty handy with that chainsaw?

Cool logs Duddy, Big step and I think you are in for big fun. I just KNOW how proud you must be of those logs, I would be too.Just take your time and think your way through each feature and remember, "Measure twice, cut once" or in this case, Draw it twice and cut it once because remember you can't put back what that big ol' chainsaw takes off!

thank you all so much! Means alot to have all you come with your kind words and awsome advice!

ok, i've been a little under the weather lately..and the weather itself isnt too fun
BUT i got some good news!
i got my TikiMags!


pretty pumped to add to my Tiki reading material!
also visited some of my pieces in the art gallery the other day, caught some pictures of them on display:
also got some pictures of the tattoo guy. i had forgot to take pics before i shipped him off





some minor updates on this guy, these pictues are from the other day. i've worked on him sinse then, just havent got pictures taken yet.



As for the big guy...been a lil slow. just cant get into the carving mood while sick. the nose runs too much
i'll have some pictures when i have a little more progress, i dont think anyone is that interested in seeing the little bit i've got done on his arms
More Soon!

Dudddy, the small head looks Great, you are really getting the facial features down pat! Your big log is looking great too, it looks like you had it run through a saw mill to square it up first, great idea. Hope you're feeling better soon, the carvings need some love!
