I forgot to sign my slip too. Oops.

Thanks again Bill for hosting another great Chop.

I'm in the home stretch with my tiki. I just need to break through that last area of the headdress and get all the detail carved into the body and sand him and stain him. Okay, maybe not the home stretch. Let's call it the final lap. But I swear he's not showing up at the next Chop unless I decide to bring him to Oasis to decorate my space.

Kate, bring the little guy to the Oasis! He's a great piece of work, probably the best you've done. I really like it. You could decorate your space and your room with it. One hand carved Tiki is worth an entire warehouse full of plastic junk bought from Party City.

Clysdalle has promised to humbly apologize in front of all of us for saying you couldn't finish it.

What stain color????

Great Chop! Creativity and laughter was flying full speed! From Babalu’s talented fingers molding a new tiki mug, to Meiko demonstration on casting, to DaveTiki’s intricate new pendants.

I myself can’t believe I got so much done on the new tiki. I hand-striped, sanded, sketched a new design, drew it onto my newly stripped log and carved all in one day.

Buzzy thanks for the invaluable tips on duplicating the sketch onto the log. Thank you 4WTiki for the sanding/power tool tips and the chalk line tip. Thanks Kate keeping the faith with using hand tools and not being tempted by the lure of Clysdale’s evil chain saw.

I don’t think I could have done it with out the power of the Spamsubi, Yakasoba and the positive creative energy of this group!

CheekyGirl's camera battery died, so here are her first two progress shots.

Huzzah. It's the new log. Huzzah.


The shaving of the log.

So in cleaning up, I see some left behind items. A box of Crayonex crayons, a can of spray urathane (Mieko?) and a red hand truck (Eric?). Anyone want to claim items, I can bring to the next chop.

Yeah, probably mine, can of Deft spray lacquer? It's my fav stuff by the way, especially for the little stuff, dries fast and looks good. I like the satin more than the semi gloss, but Home Depot was out of the satin.
Bring it to the chop if you think about it, or I'll pick it up later, no hurry.

Weee, free crayons.

I finished my chop tiki yesterday, here it is.


I based it off of one of Mieko's pendants, but word is, she can't see the resembance.

Nice work.
