That might be my favorite one so far. You have a great style going there.

I carved this seven footer a while ago. It's modeled after a Tiki in Palm Springs shown in "The Book of Tiki". The log wasn't really solid enough for this deep of a carve because the center portion is fibrous. I like the design and didn't want to waste it ....so ....I gave him a few coats of varnish to kind of seal it up and glue together the fibrous areas. I like it and maybe I'll keep him around.

I picked up 2 side tables for $6 each at Goodwill with turned legs circa 1970 ish. Had to try and carve some TiKi faces in the legs.

2 legs down and 6 to go....not sure of the carving designs on the table tops

Tom & I discovered some time ago table legs
& bed posts are great for carving.
They are better wood, dried & cared for.
We look for them at goodwill & faith farm
kind of places. They have a pile of mismatched
pieces & they don't cost much.

Good job.
I like how you lost the shape of the wood.

thanks Will Carve. These carvings are pretty rough...done with an angle grinder and an ArborTech mini-grinder. Not much chisel work.
