Just a quick update on the tiki lamp.

I managed to drill a hole from top to bottom to run the cord. Keeping it straight and removing the gunk were the big challenges.

Here it is.

I also found a 5ft. long drill bit today which I will buy if I decide to do some really big lamps.

Aloha Geedavee!

After talking to you about your fez-wearing tiki lamp at the last Rumpus Room, it's great to see a pic of it! Turned out awesome!

Great to see your progress as a carver throughout this thread, too! Keep up the good work!

Oh, did you carve the tikis on the side of your bar? They look pretty cool!

Eric, Thanks for checking out the lamp.

I did carve the tikis on the bar. I wish I had waited until I had more experience with carving hardwoods before I started, but what can ya do.

I still consider myself a non-artist since I don't seem to have the artistic vision to come up with my own designs, and I can't seem to grow any cool facial hair.

Perhaps I should start drinking again. I get real creative when I drink.

I like the lamp!

I know what you mean about lacking the vision to come up with a design. I have the same problem.

I don't know if drinking is the answer, though. I can get creative after a couple of drinks, but after 3 or 9 or 12 more, I start to get a little sloppy. Heh.

Been carving a bit lately.

This first one is a rescue log. It had some bad mold and was falling apart so I had to finish it up and seal it quickly and move on to the next one.


Next, my first attempt at a more traditional style.





The stain got a little blotchy so I will try to sand and reapply today.

These are taking me too long to carve and the wood starts to dry out before I get a chance to finish.

I managed to raise my stand up a bit to relieve my back pain. I need to do research on carving ergonomics.

Great to see this latest post Dave - wow! carving up some awesome works of art, man.

The 'moldy' tiki is cool and the traditional tiki is red-hot...Thanks for posting and talk to you soon. G
