letting it rust and get "vintage looking" is probably a good idea....Teakey this was fabricated by
a friend who works in a laser-etching business...not sure where he obtained the tiki template...but
he made some variations in the arms...eyes and overall shape...so as not be be perceived as ripping off
someone else's design...

I thought is was a Speedcult product. I wasn't thinking it was a "rippoff" but now that you say something, yeah , probably a ripoff.

Just the fact that it a laser cut meatal tiki key or hat rack is a ripoff but take a look at the tiki. Damn.


www.SpeedCult.com


the other guy


I like Sppedcult's products, have a few and they are hometown hard worker.

For everyone else...this is not a "Son of the Beach" thing...I did not create this...it was a gift...
i like it. I had never heard of speedcult....the person who made it had never heard of speedcult.

Regardless of where it came from I would be honored to recieve it as a gift. Even if it was someone elses design , some serious time was put into progamming the cutter and then polishing it out. Congrats Conga on your cool gift. I am sure that you will put it to good use.

Conga, whos bitching??? I didn't ever attack you and I know that you did not make it.

The suffering bastard. The maker of that is probably dead and plus its been so long that I don't think copyright even can apply any more. We are not selling it and are not making money off those.

Speedcult are a newer tiki/hotrodder company that are trying to make money to make a living off their ideas. A wild guess is that your friend did not go through that trouble to make just one. Buying would be easier. I think your friend and you know about the original because you knew the little changes that your friend made before I even knew. Whatever dude, I'm done talking about it and done adding to your post. Glad you check out my stuff. Have a nice day

okay...a little Northwoods update....I hesitate to post this pic because this carving is still very
much in its infancy....still lotsa removal to do before I get to finer detail...this will be based on
a tiki that is on display at the Kon Tiki Museum...I tried to find my reference pic but I cannot
pinpoint the site where it's located...only 2 1/2 hours into this one...

thanks for prodding me...GMan...and this....a Kon Tiki mask

Hey Conga,

Sorry I missed this post last night. I must have been asleep when you posted. Your new tiki looks big. Thanks for posting, I know you were not really ready for pics. What does that sucker weigh? He's looking good. Any chance you could post a pic of what your working towards? Can't wait to see the next step.

-Gman

GMan my friend...I am referencing two images of a tiki that is pretty unique...and I am not positive
they are the same figure...but they are close. I found one pic of a figure at the Kon Tiki Museum...
but its not at the museum website....the other pic is on page 249 in Tiki Road Trip...the one at the
far right and the leaning one that is propped against another carving. I have a lotta lotta lotta
work to do...made some progress tonight...just trimming the head down to size. It will be about five
feet tall..not sure of weight but it hurts my back to move him around. I am not sure I have the talent
to replicate this carving...but it will at least be an interpretation. Sorry for rambling...Margaritas
this time.

Nice work. It looks like all chisel work so far, no power tools? If you are using two different tikis as reference you might get something totally new emerge from that log.

I've spent hours on line looking for specific reference photos only to not find them so I understand your frustration there.

Conga,

Way to go man! Chip it out and let us see it as you go. I tried your link and it was dead. Maybe my bad?
