Hey guys. I've been in and out a lot but not posting. Also laid off carving my tiki for a few weeks... Christmas business, super cold outside and working on a carving project for my mom. Anyway, here's the most recent progress on my Zabo Tiki. I got a set of 4 Flexcut chisels for Christmas. Man what a difference good tools make.

Thanks guys. The trees are actually part of a functional piece I am making for my Mom. The Tiki is Douglas Fir and the trees are cedar. Wish I had more cedar logs, sooo nice to carve.

I'm using 4 large Flexcut chisels presently and want some smaller ones for the tight areas. Here's the set I got for Christmas. They cut so clean and easy.

Thanks Ben. I'm too addicted to stop now and yes, you will be seeing more stuff, especially once the weather clears a little in the spring. I have a couple of 6' Doug Fir logs in the back yard... covered for the winter and waiting for spring. One of the logs is at least 3' in diameter and must weigh over 400 pounds. I'm going to put him through a spring weight loss program. heehee

Here's an update on the Tiki. I took a break from him to make a quilt rack for my mom. Then it got really cold for a month, too cold. I'm back on it now that it's spring time. Also made a couple of mushrooms. I'm hoping to finish sanding and stain the Tiki this weekend so I can start on a BIG log that is in my back yard.

After a bit of a break/slow down on carving, I am back to the craft. I don't think I posted a pic of the finished tiki that I started this thread for, so I will post him, along with a Moai I made and a new tiki I am working on. The new guy is a 6' long, cedar log. It's green and pretty nice to work with.
