Sydney "Tiki Beat" carving workshop (lottsa pics)

Post by hewey on Sun Nov 14, 2010 8:49 am

I'm typing this kicking back after a weekend long carving workshop with Mr Tiki Beat himself - Marcus Thorne! Very Happy If you've had the opportunity to participate in one of these workshops and didn't, kick yourself now - and HARD. Marcus is a great teacher and such a down to earth and humble bloke, and it was a pleasure hanging with him and a bunch of other fine folk all weekend talking tiki art and carving Very Happy

Everyone got a pre-marked out log, ready to carve.


As part of the package everyone gets a basic toolkit to start carving too - awesome!


"See its easy, just hit the pointy steel thing into the wood thing with the other wood thing and within seconds you'll have a 6 foot tiki"






Its me!



Mel getting some tips


Paul had a couple of hours drive just to get to the workshop!




Safety cons with inbuilt steel caps?




Shaping up





This is how mine finished up after 2 days of carving. Basically she just needs some minor finishing up, sanding and lacquer.
