Hey All!

A few ppl asked to see my wine cork carvings, so I decided not to be so shy and show some
I work at a winery so corks were easy to come by! and I originally got the idea from a post by CutThroat at...

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=23473&forum=18&PHPSESSID=ce6ad136e6d2d70eb74d98194bc48fc2

Tools I used were just a simple razor blade box cutter, and inspiration from the TC boards














I also have a few bigger corks I carved that I'll post soon

Mahalo,
Tiki Den

Yay! I'm so glad you posted them! They look great! You'll be able to use a lot of what you learned on these guys for your palm tiki. I really like the nose on the far left guy, the headress on the middle guy, the bodies on the 2 guys, and how deep you got the mouth on the guy on the right.
We've gotta get you something other than a box cutter, these are great, I can't imagine what some more versatile tools is gonna do.

The crown on the far right one is very cool. Nice job.

Nice stuff TikiDen. I don't think I've seen carved cork around here yet, it Looks Great but difficult to carve. I also like tha last one on the right looking like a crown. Well done. You'll have to shoot a few progress pic's so we can see how you do it. Thanks and WELCOME to Tiki Central
