Well its been a while since I've updated because I haven't done much carving lately. I lost my Father to cancer on April 29th and I just haven't really felt like it.

That being said you cant grieve forever and life goes on so I've picked the tools back up and I've finally made a little more progress. I plan on finishing this guy in the next 3-4 weeks if possible.
I managed to rough in his body. I still have to do some fixing on the sides and come up with a back design before I can start sanding and finishing. I think some of you guys have completed 4-5 carves since I've started this one.


I really wish I wouldnt have carved the back of his eye the way I did. Its putting a serious damper on how I want to finish him now.
Oh well. I'll just have to work around it.


I cant wait to see how he turns out after I do some details around his headdress.

I hope to do some work on his feet this Sunday. Thanks for looking.

Outstanding carve! I'm going to hold you to this quality from here on out.
That headdress is no easy feat! Well done.

I like it! What I like about it (not that you asked), is that it's so smooth, and different, all the while being very traditional and the same<-but that's a good thing! Love it!

Thanks for all the comments. They mean a lot to me.
I've been a little distracted from my carve lately as I've taken on another project I've always wanted to do. Building a guitar.
Its sucking up all my free time and I can tell already that its going to take over my tiki carving career. At least for now. For me the payoff in the end is going to be better. I can spend 100+ hours on a tiki and its not worth nearly as much monetarily as a guitar with the same hours in it. My wife is starting to ride me about ignoring my tiki carving though so I'm going to try and get some work in this weekend. The end is near though. I just have to finish the back and carve in some detail on his feet (and a few other things. I'm looking forward to burning this guy and staining him though.

I should have an update soon.
