Thanks for the comps Matt and Jungle Trader ....

Took a break to finish another book but had the itch to carve something!!! So I decided to make me a small bone carving tiki! It's about the size of a nickel - I need to get some cord to finish it off ... pretty fun carving this little guy, even with old man eyes!



... and the CJ logo for the back:

Carving that little bone tiki was so much fun that I went ahead and made a little eagle ray for my wife!

Finally got hold of some nice logs and of course, I'm too impatient to wait for them to dry .... I carved this Moai from the smallest log and was pleased that it carved very nicely. I'm not happy with the stain ... it is some kind of golden oak and made the whole thing look splotchy ... I like the unstained version better. Maybe the spar urethane will make it look better, or I might just stain the whole thing with the darker stain that is on the base. I'm going to let it dry out a bit before finishing it ..... it's nice to be carving again!

If you're using the Minwax golden oak, use two or three more coats of it. that should even it all out.Any more than that, and it's real close to looking like cherry or a couple coats of early american. Then spar away!

Buzzy Out!

Thanks Buzzy .... I'll remember that for the next time I use that stain. I went ahead and used the dark stain on this one and like it much better..

Decided to try my hand at carving a traditional Hawaiian .... started this Kane a couple weeks ago. This log has some nice cracks in it but as long as it stays together it should turn out okay ....

And a few more with a bit more detail added ... this is just hammer and flat chisels .... slow going, but for now I feel more in control than I would with the grinder ...

Finally bought a draw knife! What a great tool! De-barked a log in less than five minutes with that thing ....

A couple more progress shots of the Kane ... started on the body and some more detail on the teeth ...
