Day one of the location carve went well. Made good progress. This has been a difficult tiki for me because of the shape of the log (still in the ground). It's leaned back and has a abnormal curve to it. Should have it done tomorrow and will post more pictures from the finished piece.

You carves are awesome! Are you generally using pine or?

Might be interested in getting a larger one carved for the Kio Wai Lounge. Or maybe a couple lessons...been wanting to get into a carving myself.

Well day two was a bust. I was really hoping to get this one finished up, but the rain moved in. I'll have to return next week and finish him off. Just some odds and ends left the the stain/sealer.
