Dude, be careful! Damn that looks painful. Your stuff is coming along good. Do you need any other wood. Lemme know.

Yeouuuch... I know that smarts.

Post that in the saftey thread as a gentle reminder to everybody.


I like the originality on the tiki carving, and the corks are a good idea.

here's a couple that i finished, hope y'all enjoy.

this guy - peaceful pete is now standing guard and watching over musicians at a recording studio in austin,tx.





this guy is scarface, destroyer of digits. he is no longer allowed to play with others and he is under my muse's mind control at her tiki compound.






found some really nice pieces of pine that are ready to carve. will post the progress soon.

Looks great, BD. Yeah, he's a bad boy. Too bad about the finger. Did that one guy ever come through with the palm?

thanks t

no deal on the wood yet but i did find a stash of pine that had just been cut down and put out for heavy trash (some of which was already dried out) so i filled my exploder. now i just gotta find time to carve. been thinking of going all bob dylan and going electric and buying a grinder and a dremel and a chainsaw, sure looks like it would be faster and brings in that element of danger (rapidly turning blades of steel and soft flesh). to you and all the other carvers out there have agreat day.

I love it! The electric/gas/oil Dylan! Brilliant! Chuckle!

Nice work on all the pieces, I like the moai with feathers.

The dremel has really come in handy for sanding and shaping small areas. Also I have one of those Black & Decker "Mouse" sanders. Works pretty good for small areas as well, but the velcro isn't as sturdy as I would like it to be. Just treat it kindly.

got all inspired seeing everyone's carves, then i found some ford pine.


gonna carve me a big simple one i said to myself





then i got carried away



as you can see i didn't even chose one of the bigger pieces of pine but a tiny branch that was meant for the garbage heap. one day i'll be happy with what i carve. he still needs some work or may put him aside and let the wood speak to me.

You are doing just fine! I love your Picasso tikis.
You got some talent there and more logs.
