Dude, your stuff is looking good. One problem though...I hate to sound like the safety dork (which is what I am professionaly) but leave the guard on your grinder. Please read through the safety thread started by Loki. I know that safety stuff is not cool and is is easier to work without it but all it takes is one incident and you're screwed. I've been a member here for like 2 years now and in that time have seen some nasty injuries that could have been easily prevented.

Thank you for the concern Surf. I'll read through that thread.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I think I'm finished with the carving part of this one. I need to wait to burn it as the log is still a little damp.







I took this shot to show the difference in color with a thin single coat of Spar Varnish.

Nice work Colin!! Missed you at the Chop this month, I'm glad to see you ventured out on your own! I really love this last guy of yours, especially how you left the hair on, and how well proportioned he looks.

Thanks meiko. I was bummed about missing the chop too. There was soo much planned and from viewing the results of that thread, I see I missed out on some good stuff. (especially the spam musubi )

Hopefully I can make next months.

So I was going to burn and varnish this thing today, but Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley and Santa Ana must not import Spar Varnish... Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware and a couple mom & pop hardware stores, didn't have any at all.

So I just ended up burning it and the varnish will have to wait. Here are a couple pics.

I've done two since I last updated this.

This first one was a wedding present and now resides in Chico, CA










This one I started yesterday at the SoCal Chop Chop and finished today.










Thanks for looking.

Nice one, Colin! I see a definite style developing, especially with your last two carvings. Like 'em!

More excellent tikis HB, Keep posting and sharing. Post more progress shots too if you can find the time, I know it's hard. You've come a long way in a short time and we want to see how you do it. Thanks.

Nice stuff! I'm curious though, what's the "chop shop" all about? A place to go and carve? Cost? Open all the time? Whatzzzzzup??!

surfin, that's "chop chop", as in San Diego Chop Chops. We all meet once a month to carve, talk, eat, and drink. No cost, open to all, so fly on out! Look for threads in the California Events forum.

That's sweet! I am pondering moving west, Oceanside to be specific! But I've been yapping about that for a while...maybe this spring.
Chop Chop would be perrrrfect.

Thanks guys. I've got one more piece about the same size as the last one, but after that I'm stuck with no logs for the moment. I need to find somewhere by me that I can get some from. I've been lucky so far with the help of 4WDtiki and Buzzy for the logs I've carved so far.

Benzart, I agree about "during" pics, but once I get in the zone it's hard to stop to take a pic. I get distracted way too easily.

I'll try to get some on the next one.
