The smell of cedar has been in my yard lately.
A tall table.

Still a long way to go.

I am cutting out the the back, bottom section.

This one is 4 foot tall and big in diameter.

I did some glass eyes in cobalt blue. then added a matching acrylic to the bottom of this guy.

I have been laboring on this piece of purple heart for what seems a century. It is so hard and heavy that it would make a better boat anchor than a carving.

As Laz from Orlando often states," practice makes progress."
This cedar stump just screamed Ku because of his stout nature.

Thanks guys, Aloha I really debated about that and remember often chastising myself with " What next cy, a moia? A Bob?", but I am having a lot of fun with it so what the heck.

Thanks bt, it is nice to see some new tiki carvings going on! I started on a 8' x 7 1/2 " plank of bass wood.




I used will carves cool New Caledonia mold as inspiration for the top portion.

"Coo" is almost done except for teeth and toes.

This table has seen some chain saw work as well.

I like the way you're using all the wood.
Like Tom says
" wood goes all the way thru."
Good stuff.

Chris, where do you find basswood like that? I'm thinking that's not something you pick up at Home Depot or Lowe's.

Thanks Will, I learned more than I can tell you about using all the wood from you and Tom in just the short time we met long ago! Mike we have a hardwood store here in Portland called Crosscut that is a candy store for guys like me. I originally went to get my favorite wood, jelutong, but that is getting harder to find, but they will usually have a nice block of bass wood available. The shape will dictate the design, which is fun for me.

Thanks Jon, basswood is so forgiving, which I need and appreciate. Very heavy rains have brought things into the garage which gave me time to refine a bit.
