Heres some more work, ive started on him again.
Starting to come together,man its hard with no chainsaw and one X 1' Flatted headed chisel and a rubber hammer getting that stringy skin off ,but very rewarding will be purchasing a couple of new tools when i can ei: planner like the buzz video

YES, I Love the epth of that detail and how the eyes get so much darker. All those strings are why the torch initially came about being used on tikis to burn them away. Looks like you have it full under control though, Excellent tiki!

Lookin good mate, I really can't believe how far you have gone using that shitty stringy cocos palm, a real credit to you.. The lack of decent palm logs in Australia really makes it difficult to carve from palm, Fan Palm species are rare and only usually found in Established lanscaping so not often cut down, but there are always other types of tree that will carve well... well done!
