Aloha TC!
I scored this sweet Root Ball off the beach last evening.
The wood is definitley cured-been sittin in the sun & salt for a good while. She washed up last week during rough seas/weather. I had been eyeballin it for a bit and just hadnt figured out how to move her. Cant wait to see what Tiki comes out. I got a hold of some coconut palm too,that stuff is tough man. First time using coconut stock-it has a pretty green Moss/Jade shade to it.
Heres the beginning of em.
New style I was attempting, kinda wierd lookin so far.
Critique/advice welcome!

JK Noyes

Carve deeper. And, why do you call the log a her? He's a nice log. Can I have him?
Try using chalk to outline the features. Draw a center line first and work off that.

Nice find! I've been saying we need a beach here in Tucson for things like that to wash up on.

Savagedaddy:Nice! your in SRQ! I saw your work on an old forum-inspirational. You guys on TC set the bar pretty high. I have lots of new ideas,as soon as my new tools come in Im going to carve like a madman, even punching out details on old Tikis I thought to be finito. Come visit us sometime if you get a chance-(Anna Maria) Ill keep posting pics as I "bring out the tiki"

A,
Nice going! You're official. Amazing what a good gouge can do for you. I'm still learning myself. Looking forward to more.
Ciao
