Your 1st tiki is incredible and this one is shaping up too... Kudos to you and to Gman for helping you!

Hells ya! Why go North of Florida if I'm not gonna cut some wood? Uncle Sam said I had to report to DC for work this week, so I figured I might as well hook up with Craig for a carve-fest. We removed a butt load of wood from this guy and I think Craig will be better able to get his hooks into this rough out than he was gonna with that big old heavy log. That rough out would have been a real stinker to do with chisels only.

Anyway, it was great meeting you and your family. I really enjoyed seeing the finished Tang...it rocks. Next time The G calls me in for business, we'll get together and work some more. Thanks for having me over and driving me back to the hotel. Remember to cut that face/profile back with the slope of the nose Rock on.

Hey G, can you come over to my house? I have a few logs that need some help.

Looks like a great start. Keep posting progress.

Thanks Robin, Aloha Station, & Benz for checking him out. G, yesterday I had my face planted in a pillow!!! Got a little light through the arms (really messy & uneven) but I think I can clean this up better than the tang. No carving tomorrow, but full days on Sunday and Monday!!! Gonna get out the angle grinder.

All smiles here man! What fun! Keep thinking about symmetry and work slowly; he's gonna be great!. This guy has such a powerful and slouchy look....I love it! I'll be back in touch in a few days...I'm heading out to fill a tag.

1st attempt at a chainsaw rough out! I was trying to learn as much as I could while GMAN was here. I'm attempting a kavakava but I don't think that is going to happen with the way it turned out! I cut WAY to deep on the upper thigh and I forgot that the thing needs arms!! I at least got some practice w/ the chainsaw and I was starting to get the hang of the wedge cuts???

Good start! the KavaKave Moai is one of the ugliest/scariest tikis. With his emaciated, Auschwitz style good looks, ribs showing and the scowl on his face. judging from the size I'm sure this one will be quite impressive. Take your time and keep them blades sharp.

Do you have A.D.D. or something? You have to go and start another? He looks good though! Those Kavas are so freaky and skinny looking, I bet you could chip a good one outta there!

Get back to the other guy and quit playing around!

G, I did work on the other guy too, I thought I posted the pics. I just did a little angle grinder but my disc was getting worn out and it wasn't taking much off that one arm so that's when I decided to give the chainsaw a go. I back to the other guy today. I don't think the kava roughout is going to work anyways!!! Thanks for the comments Alien & BigT!!
