It's great to see postings from local TC'rs. I'm from Springfield and briefly lived in the Springs.
If I were you, I'd head down to Lowe's and get a 4 pack of Record/Marples wood chisels. They're high quality, very basic, and inexpensive (around $20). These were recomended to me by a very reputable TIKI carver from Modesto California as a good starter set.
btw: I'm just finishing up my first large scale project on which I used the aforementioned chisels. I'm staining and thaining right now!
Wow, didnt know there were any locals here!
We may have even crossed paths before.
I'm taking your advice on the chisels. ...and I'd love to see your work.
BTW...have you ever been to the Dock restaurant in Enon? Theres a few hidden tikis there. Mostly behind plants. Cool misting waterfall to at the bar.
The place really isnt tiki, its kind of a mixed island/lodge/redneck thing. But I still go there for cocktails(they need help) closest thing to tiki around here
