OK i've finally started. Yesterday I bought a couple of chisels and started my first carving. It's about the size of a Tiki mug. I'm not sure what sort of wood it is but it carved very nicely. I'm just concerned it's not completely dry in the centre, so i'm hoping it won't crack.


Here's the chisels. They are only small to suit the size of wood i'm using. I need to find a good size log and then i'll buy some larger ones.



The wood with the design drawn on.


And here's where I got up to last night. There's not too much more wood I want to take off, so when i've finished that i'll get the Dremel out and do some sanding to clean it up and maybe add some detail. I'm very happy with it so far and i'll post some more pics as I go.

Thanks for the compliments guys.
Besides putting on a stain, which I can't afford for a few weeks, i've finished my first carving. There's a couple of tight spots that could do with some more sanding but I'm happy with it how it is and don't want to spend hours trying to get a couple of small bits perfect and risk damaging it somehow. I'll post more pics when it's stained. Time to start my next one.

Very nice, clean and simple design. I like it a lot! The tools you got are nice high end and will last a life time. Nice choice.

Here's a couple of pics of my second carving. I just need to finish the top of the head, do the teeth, and then just clean it up and do the sanding.

Swizzle you are really good. The way the nose goes on the first carving is really stylish. I think it's different from any tiki I've ever seen. It's inspiring to see someone just be perfect on a first try. What kind of wood are you using? Wendy

Thanks for those kind words Wendy. Not sure about perfect, but it did come out pretty good if I do say so myself. As for what wood it is i'm not sure. I think it's some sort of native, either a wattle or a eucalypt. They are just off-cuts from a neighbours yard. It's very nice to carve.
