Aloha All,

Long time member, first time carving posting...I carved this small tiki, approximately 4 inches tall by 1 inch in diameter out of an apple wood branch from my yard, using X-acto knives. It was a Christmas gift for my brother, he really loves it. I know there is room for improvement, as there will always be, but it came out well enough that I felt comfortable posting it. Comments and critiques certainly welcome...

Mahalo for looking.

Paul

Hey Paul,
Looks good, nice start. I like that you did the full body and have good depth to it. Keep at it.

Scott

Thanks for all the positive responses everyone!! I'm a little worried now, my brother is now talking about finding some Koa for me to carve a larger tiki from, I just don't want to be messing up some nice koa...We'll see.

Happy Tiki New Year!!

You were born to carve. The body and balance is so good. Keep it up, Wendy

Thanks Wendy, that's a great compliment coming from you. I love all the ceramics you've done, I watch for updates everyday, and everything is looking so good. I definitely want to try mug making, as it looks really fun...

Aloha!!

PJC5150 - Thanks for the compliment, love your carvings, you get such a nice finish on that palm, wish I had some up here in PA to try...I'll be going larger in the spring, with some pine and apple...Hopefully it will work out even better than this first guy...I'm also going to be trying the Flexcut set like you have...

Beachbumz - Thank you!! Your mug work is incredible, the detail and glazing just look so insanely good. Love you woodgrain "Tongo" mug...And the "Tiki Troffs" are awesome..

Mahalos everyone.

Paul
