I finally decided, after 2.5yrs on Tiki Central, to post one of my carvings. It's a Moai that stands 11 inches and hand carved from drak walnut. The hard wood walnut was a bear to carve and sand but it was worth the work and dislocated wrist. Hope you enjoy it.

Just a block of wood and the plans for the Moai.

Starting to take shape.



Finally finished. Finish is a clear semi-gloss poly.



A gecko just for fun and great for sitting on top of my other tiki's heads.

Thank you all for such great compliments! It wasn't my first carving just the first one posted here on TC. I have got to tell you all that I have learned a lot through all the topics and from the great TC carvers. I'll post more as I get them done. Thanks again.

TikiLizard, Excellent Moai and Awesome Gecko, both super carves for a beginner or how ever how many you have carved. Definitely don't resemble any "Early" Carves. I'm Glad you finally decided to post some shots of your work, are there more that you have?

Quick question for the chisel mallet carvers. What sized mallet do you all use? I have a Maple 8oz and I have beaten it to death. Thanks

I use three mallet



In brass, 35 Oz, I like for slow and precise beating.

In ash tree, 8 Oz, turned by my father, a little light.

In Nylon head, 14 Oz, perfect for hard chopping, my mostly use.

I have 3. 12 oz, 18 oz, and a home made job. To save your wrist get urethane, they work.
