Just thought I'd show a finished pic before I wrap him up. He's going to Polynesiac's house to play with the other tikis.

The other one is one I started a couple of nights ago. Hopefully it's going to be traded for a mug with another TCer. There's a long way to go on that guy. I'll show more as that one progresses.

Mahalo!

Man oh Man FinkDaddy!! I really can't believe the sharp, crisp detail you are getting. You maybe should become a Dentist with the chompers you are giving your tikis some people would be proud to have in their mouths.
We gotta get you some good wood.

Benzart, thanks. I like to start with the mouth first because I think it holds the most personality. I would kick myself for a week if I carved a whole tiki and then screwed up the mouth!

PolynesianPop, just PM me and we'll work it out. If you want to get one you'll be recieving #4. I would love to try some new wood. Can you carve cherry with knives? I don't actually have any power tools, which is what has kept me from trying some of the nicer wood.

Thanks everyone.

Cherry is pretty tough to carve with knives but you can do it, just takes longer. It can take SO Much more detail, you won't believe it. You should try some mahogany too. Much softer and beautiful. Whatever you use, just keep carving.

Thanks again everybody.

Congatiki, Maybe we could trade a pendant for a cool monkey painting? Your bar looks terrific. We were thinking of going to visit my wife's dad in Antigo, so of course I'd like to see it in person!

McTiki, Thanks. I would never get anything done without all the encouragement I get from you guys!

Hewey, How does #1 like the weather? I hope you're showing him the sights and introducing him to the lady tikis.

Palama Tiki, It's really hard to find the time. I just get 5 minutes here and there a couple of times a week. Sometimes when the kids are sleeping or away, or sometimes durring a lunch break at work I'll get a bit of quiet time. Between the wife, kids, job, the house, and my basement construction project, I get very little time for carving. I just keep going a little at a time and rely on you folks who keep encouraging me to stay with it.

Here is a progress pic of #3


Mahalo everyone!!!

# 1 loves the warmer weather. He keeps quite and has a good poker face, but I see through his facade.

As for the lady tikis I think I am cramping his style. The fact he is hanging around inside a volkswagen probably doesnt help

Mate those new tikis look way cool. Even though I got my own I still get tiki envy every time you show pics of a newby
