You are truly an inspiration. I'm glad to see you back sir. You are younger than most here and yet, you wield such masterful craft. Keep in more frequent touch man.

You inspire us. Truly!!!!

Many Mahaloz out to you brother!

McTiki

This tiki has eyes now! The sleepy eye look is achieved by carving a standard circular eye, drawing two lines around a half inch apart across the middle horizontally, and then sharply "rolling" the chisel down the edge of the eye away fron the edges of the lines. Once you have the lid surfaces even and balanced again you can divide the lids by just going across the middle with a very sharp palm gouge. Sorry no pictures of that process...forgot to record me wee little trademark...but easy to do. too.

Looking Good! The Mai-Kai will make the perfect home for this big Marq. Great to see you carving again, BK. I suppose you're just getting warmed up?...

Hey...this is starting to look like a tiki...And who's shirt is this? The close ups are of cutting in the chest contour. A deep contour makes a tiki look really proud and fierce.

This is where it all happens now...a humble little campaign desk with a humble shop clamp and billet clamp...here's me applying the grip checkering to a large serrated Solomon Islands style club...The only important thing to remember is to steady your piece with a clamp and draw out your checker lines in advance to make sure they all meet up from side to side of the club. Use a small palm parting tool. The second finger of your right hand will develop a permanent dent after a while, but hand work looks ten times better than power tool work when applying fine detail like this.

BK - You rock! I hadn't seen this thread before. What a great resource. Now I feel stoopid becuase I had the opportunity to ask you some questions but I didn't know what to ask. If I had only seen this thread before CoonTiki... Very cool stuff...Your mallet is cool too.
