Hi I have always been interested in monsters, skeletons , tikis, totem poles etc.. since I was a young boy. I always wanted my parents to buy me a totem pole ( a huge north american one ) they said they would when they went on holiday but it never happened. Anyway I noticed this website about a year ago, may I say it is excellent. I recently bought a chainsaw and decided to give a tiki a go here are the progress pics so far



Used a chainsaw initially and dremel for more detail



The wood is a type of Eucalyptus (white peppermint) second photo is after torching and sanding

I think I might stain it with a Jarrah stain

Comment and advice greatly appreciated

Welcome to you Nomolos! Intéresting first tiki, perhaps a little bit too burned, but it's just a question of taste...

Keep carving with fun and don't forget to share your progress!

J.

Started on 2nd Tiki, this carving stuff is addictive!!

It's a tough piece of wood - parts are really soft and crumbly other parts hard and splintery.

As parts crumbled away I had to change the design, fluctiuating from liking it to disliking. Any advice about next steps to take appreciated.

Cheers

Sol

Welcome to TC. Nicely completed piece. Stain really brought the features out and he's displayed enjoyably. Great start! Keep up the carving so we can see more of your work.
