Thank you one and all for the kind words. It really means a lot to me, you have no idea.

Polynesiac, I feel so honored to see my guy hanging next to a Benzart and all those other great pieces! I'm glad you like him. Make sure you feed him some red meat once in a while and make his drinks stiff. Thank you, you've made my day!

Congatiki, Assuming you will be at Exotica, maybe we could do a trade at that time?

Poly- Friday, Saturday, Sunday hanging around and Monday sitting down below look to be enjoying one another.

Fink- where did this talent come about. This is great, now I don't have to wait as long on the other "charm" carvers to show their pics.

DAMN, Finkdaddy! Put me on the list before everybody else jumps on in front of me. I have a feeling you'll have a long list going very soon. What number am I?

A-A

Here is my latest. Just the clear coat to go. Thanks everyone for looking and being so supportive.













CongaTiki, I'm so sad to hear you can't make Exotica. I LOVE the monkey picture, I can't wait to hang it on my tiki bar wall! We'll get together soon to make the exchange.

Aaron's Akua, You're on the list! If everyone that has asked for one takes them in order, then I only have 3 to carve before yours. So you're scheduled to receive #7.

Big mahalo to everybody.

I found Finkdaddy's inspiration for the tiki I got. Have a look at page 205 in the Book of Tiki, and compare it to the carving (page 5 of this thread).

Personally, I reckon Finkdaddy's is way cooler and has definitely improved upon the original. Then you consider that his fits into the palm of your hand, and has a heap more detail, compared to 5-6 foot carving. Yep, definitely way cooler.

One more peek before I ship him off to sunny California. I keep sending my guys off to places alot warmer than here. Maybe some day I will follow them.


Hewey, I know you wont believe me, but I didn't use that picture. I don't remember where I saw it exactly, but I found a carving by another TCer I liked, so I used that for inspiration. I can only assume that they used the BOT picture for their tiki!

Hewey, that looks completely cool! It looks like a Flounder painting, or some weird, scary, black velvet painting.
