Hello Tikimaniacs,
here are some tiki carving process pics of my tikis,
wanted to start one big topic for my "how to" pics so that i don`t have to open one for every single piece.
hope you can get something out of it for your own works.
best wishes and happy carving-RIOTURBAN

"THE WOODPECKER"

the design


rough shape




sanding the surface




working on details


chamfer the cutting edges to avoid splintering




after cleaning the surface by sanding it i add a layer of shellac to avoid further contamination


add more details





now i apply the decoration


one of the last steps is to put in the eyes(i always put in the eyes after chiseling. the eyes make the tiki become alive and i dont want to chisel on a living tiki )


now i apply shellac and the tiki is finished!
