Have not been getting enough time to turn this tiki out as fast as I'd like but here are some progress shots.

Here is the back side. The fork is tightening a rubber band I rigged in lieu of a vice because I was working around his upper lip and chipped two massive chunks out.

Here is the front, a vast improvement from the first shot of his once club feet.

Although no one can see under his feet I thought it looked cool carving out actual feet and not leaving a complete round base.

I plan on buying the Black and Decker Mouse for detail sanding, it comes with 33 attachments. Anyone have any advice as far as sanders go?


Olmec Said So....
