those are all good ideas. i am going to have to see how the wood is when i clean it up. i currently have a hand full of tikis that are in different stages of being worked on that are ahead of this in line. i have pieces of wood laying all over my back yard lol. still dont think i have enough lol getting some new tools next week and i am stoked. looking forward to finishing some of the tikis i have started. i also wanted to let you guys all know that i am loving it here a TC. you guys are all very helpful and seeing the level of tikis you guys all make really helps me push to get my skills to the next level. Thanks

I often wondered. How the Squires worked. Seems like you'd have to recover the surface after a dig with those. They leave tools marks pretty bad. Can't tell how fast they move material.

Can't wait to see some carves.

Mahalo!

How's the wrists?

my wrist is feeling better and am looking forward to doing some carving. i just finished the match to the last one i did. the pair of them are going to a friend. now that that one is done and my new toys are in the mail i am looking forward to working on some of the projects i have started. i also ordered the flex cut chisels pjc5150 told me about. so on the next one i am gonna be thinking about cutting deeper and making the log disappear. i got a lot of ideas that i wanted to try to do but was limited by the tools i was working with and with the new tools hope to try to make happen.

My new chisels came in today and they are great. they cut like butter. thanks for showing them to me Jeff. once they got here i remembered i forget to get a wood mallet. so i went out to wood pile and grabbed a piece of wood and got right to work.



i know it is not a tiki but i made it for tiki carving so i think it counts. lol
