Thanks G-Man.....coming soon;) You know it. Appreciate the PM.

Surf-n-Turf......thanks alot. It's funny, alot of people see these Pine, horned, inter-twining fanged, child eating wood carvings and call them just that. These are out of my head, not like copying something out of a book that has been carved time and time again. I call them tikis, but with a different twist. They're fun to carve. I like'em. Thanks for noticing. Most of the carvings you have seen are palm, but the nicer, more traditonal looking ones are Ponderosa White Pine. I have some Cedar to crank out and a few pieces of Spruce.

Keep up the good works, stay in touch.

G.

If Tiki G touches it, it's TIKI. Period.

Those are lookin' crisp! Very tight. Nice combo idea on the right, always good to see a new twist like that. A Tangaroan-Maori! But I have to say I'm a sucker for the Marq on the left. Is that a hint of tongue between the teeth? Cool. Gonna stain 'em? Doesn't look like your standard palm, whadja use?

Gary,

Very sweet stuff my man! The Marq is wikkid and the Maroi combo is killer. Is this the pine you had trucked in? It looks like a dream to work with. Very stylin' post. I'm looking forward to seeing your stain job on these bad boys. Thanks so much for posting.

-Gman

Classic. It seems people are branching out and try their hands at other styles. I love these. The one of the left is my fav. I have seem a couple and the legs weren't right but these all fit with itself top to bottm. Nothing out of place.

G!!!!! I'm diggin' your style, I love both of these new ones. yes, very crisp, yes, very tight, but there's something else...I just can't put my finger on it...that makes it yours. I've always been a fan of the upper maori with the moko, I really dig that style.
Nice job! are these for sale? for a custom order? or for your pad?

Thanks alot everyone......Bargoyle, JohnnyP., PockyTiki, teaKEY, Hewey, Lake, tfisherart. It's getting hard to keep up around here these days because of all the awesome work guys like you and many others on here are putting out. You are the one's that deserve all the oooh's and the aaaah's. Trish and I just do our thing, but we work hard at it, and work together at it. She deserves just as much praise as I. Trish A.K.A. "SANDER GIRL", and stain and poly girl........

Surfintiki, Yeah that is suppose to be a tongue;) It's White Pine and they're going to get stained up real good. Thanks alot bro. Hang Loose;)

Gman, Yeah these two are from that (60)ft of White pine I had shipped in from Montana a few weeks ago. These two were only (9)ft of it;) Used some for a few others as well. More to come though. Your latest two are looking jake. Thanks Greg.

Polynesiac, I appreciate your post very much. I like carving the Maori and the Marqs. Trying to get them down in my own way without copying everyone else's, which is hard to do with traditional style tikis to me since they already look all alike. Ok., since you asked (and everyone knows I do not agree with using this forum as a selling tool) the answer is yes, these will be for sell on my website soon. That's all I have to say about that. Keep up the good works yourself. Thanks again Poly.
