Wow, lots of great stuff here. Really love all the extra detail on your carves. They're all very cool looking.

Hey there, it's been a while between posts.
Thanks everyone for the comps.
Since last post - i sold two tikis and bought some real chisels. Wow what a difference that makes.
Beno, did you get some good splits in the gum?
Hey more Ausies ~ that's great.
Thought i'd post this one. It feels like it's taken me forever to finish this guy. As with most carvings i've tried, I'm never completely satisfied.
This fellow was good fun to carve. he's done with that same Sugar gum after drying in my shed for about 12 months. Don't think those splits will get any bigger.

Personally I love cracked tikis It ads to the mystic and ancient quality..... Very strong carving and thank you for sharing with us.
