Thanks man, i still feel like i have a long way to go until i get to the level some guys are at, but its all about practice i guess. I should be getting four 6 foot sable logs this weekend, so im looking forward to carving something big again. I finished the handle bar mustache tiki. Here are some pics, the guy really liked how it came out. Thanks again

Finished up that santa tiki. It was a quick carve. I didnt really spend much time on detail or sanding, only spent about an hour of total work. Heres a pic of the finished work. Also Santa came early. I got a new 8 foot sable log. This one should be fun!

Made a new bar top tiki, stands about 16 inches tall. Took about 4 hours start to finish. All thats left now is final torching, sanding, staining, and sealing. Im guessing another hour of work. I decided to try more detail work on this one, my first attempt at toes. Enjoy the pics.

Well done. Way to carve them deep with lots of expression.

Thanks,
Ive been wanting to do some bigger work but im having a tough time finding big enough logs. Ive had a ton of big queens come my way, but they all rot out before I can get any work done on them. So for now im just keeping up the practice with these smaller ones.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I did both of these tikis at the same time, they went pretty fast. I finally got a draw knife this week and its definitly one of my better investments. Cuts the log prep time way down. I just shaved three logs yesturday in about 30 min. Hope to have some new work up soon.
