Thanks Skootiki ..... I remember when I started my first carve how great it was to come to Tiki Central and see the progress shots of the expert carvers .... those photos have helped me tremendously (and still do) so I figured I'd do the same .... I'm still a newb, but if these shots help anyone get some ideas then it is all cool!

Have a Great Day!

Couple more after some sanding and cleaning up the nooks and crannies ... just a little more rounding on the arms and knees and some fine sanding yet and then stain ...

Have a Great Day!

Put on the stain today and then the spar ... so this Ku's done! Think I'll try my hand at a Marquesan next ...

Thanks for stopping in and Have a Great Day!!

Some progress shots on the Marq ... this was a quick carve (another Christmas present) so the carve isn't as deep as I would have liked ..

Thanks for stopping in and Have a Great Day!

Looking good there Captain Jack. Thanks for the progress shots, you've given me some inspiration to get out to the shed and make a start on a Ku.

Cheers
Grimbo

Jumped in on the next one ....this will be a Lono. It's about 4 feet tall. So far I have started all my tikis at the head and worked my way down. And most times I had to scrunch on the body as I misjudged my spacing ... so this time, I am doing the body first! And if I use too much log on the body, he gets to be a Ku instead!

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

That's brilliant...I'm going to remember that when I get around to attempting a Lono.

Got a few more chops done on the lono (I didn't over-stretch the body so it gets to be a lono after all).... had a whale of a time getting the symmetry on this one to line up .... finally took a break from drawing all over it and stripped a few logs. It's getting there!

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Nice carves. I like the turtle. I did one a while back that was very similar. It's a lot harder than it looks! Luv your back yard.

Thanks Big T! Those tiny bone carvings are a challenge ... not to mention the whole place smells like burnt teeth .... I plan on getting on a lot more practice!

Did some more work on the lono, now it's time to get ready to party!





.... Things will be going much smoother in the future ... I finally broke down and bought some good tools! Can't wait to put the mallet to them!

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great New Years!
