Had a little time while the kiddies were taking a nap! Started smoothing out under the arms (still a lot more sanding though! G, your idea worked great! I added a belly button, and started to shape the wang! I didn't know that could be so complex! I'm off all next week so hopefully I can wrap it up???

I wish I didn't mess up the back of the arms, they look like twigs but that's all I have to work with now. Maybe they will be alright when I round them out more?

TFreek, I can't believe how well you are doing with this tiki. On his "re-make" you pulled out all the stops and really turned on the juice. He looks like he will be finished on a Much higher skill level than I thought possible. Very Well done dude!

Benella- Yeah G is the man for the pics, well he is just the man in general!

Benz- Thanks a million!

McTiki- Thanks! I'm still sanding.

I got a Dremel and I couldn't resist to try it out, also I hope I didn't break the Cardinal rule of carving but I used some wood filler for the cracks ( although I do like cracks in carvings) I just want this one to be as smooth as I can get it!






Just the trial run on the details, still working on them!

Yo, Craigo! I'm back from bow-fishing, so give me a call. I would like to talk dremel and rotating bits. I think using some different burs will give you a smoother bottom and better effect. Or, you could use a smallish V-liner and make it really tight. You gots one a those?

Jeeze! Does he look great or what? I am very impressed with your work on this guy. Are you diggin' it? You better be, cause they don't get much better....

Also, careful with the wood filler....as that wood will not be done "moving" for like a year or so. You may need to re-do the filler as he checks further and the gaps open more.

Yeah G- is definitely THE man in general.

Very nice work on your little fellow. I hardly believed it is your first if I hadn't follow all the progress. This Tang is very very good.
As G- said a smallish V-scorp is very useful for carved details as you did on the arms. But an advice: try your hand on another piece of wood before.

Very happy for this piece,

Ben

One of the arms broke off and it wasn't a smooth break, so now I'm going to attempt to reconstruct yet again!!!!

Yours is NOT the first tiki arm to break, that's why we all have Super glue in Quart cans! Also Look at those Pictures, notice how most of the arms Look like TOOTHPICKS? It's like they were always an afterthought so see. you are Right on the plan, PerFecto! Keep up the Great work and just think, when you finish This guy, you can Start ALL Over again and make the same mistakes.

Oh man, that sucks!

A lot of great art had no arms though.



Now you can call it "Tiki de Milo" and sell it for millions!

Nah! It's looking great. Just pin that arm back on, slap a Band-Aid on it and it's good to go.

Ah, the challenge of a broken appendage! You will do fine. It's a good sign that you
are going to be great at carving. Your first tiki and you are already digging so deep
that you broke him. Wonderful.
