That is one beautiful Sali. It reminds me of the acient Tongan war clubs that have similar carved incising. They also had incised figures which encoded hidden meanings as allusions & metaphors to the owner & perhaps the carver. Oh & that Marq club is just too beautiful. I wish I was Grog right now. "Grog so lucky, me likey too!" Keep up the amazing work.

Tmec, Incredible stuff as Usual, I haven't seen Anyone come close to your tight detail and beautiful stuff, How do you do it??
Of course with a Shop like this

I'm Sure Anyone could do the same stuff! NOT!
I Know it takes more than tools to do such great pieces but they DO Help a wee bit.
I'm Always Awed by your tool control and your precise cutting. Keep up the Fantastic stuff!

Here is another Marq Ceremonial Club I finished last night. It's 5' tall and 12" wide.

This one is going go live at Casa de Grog.

Enjoy













BUMP to show off the gorgeous piece that TMec did that GROG getting.

GROG is SO proud to be getting such an amazingly beautiful piece from such a talented and skilled carver. GROG going to have to dip into GROG' "rainy day" funds to get it, but it's MORE than worth it for such a great piece. GROG was pissed that GROG didn't get the previous ceremonial paddle that TMec had done when GROG had the chance, but now GROG glad GROG missed that one and this one came along. This has got to be one the most beautiful pieces Tikimecula has done. AND IT"S ALL GROG"S!!!!!!!

(Major GLOATING in effect!!)

So I forgot to post this months ago for my 6 year old son. He started Cub Scouts this last year and when it was time for the Pinewood Derby, He brought home his car kit and asked me to help him make a Tiki Racer. So here it is...



Pretty good chops for a 6 year old


I had some time the last few days so I knocked out some cheap Tikimecula specials. Thinking of doing maybe 5-10 of these if people want them. They are going into the Marketplace and the price will be reasonable Less than $100 shipped.

These 2 are 11" round. Key hole in the back to hang on the wall.





Also working on an 8" version of these.

Beautiful plate, Andy! Let's see the others. Are they different designs, or the same as this one?

That Pinewood Derby car rocks! Looks like a battering ram! Was that your son's concept? How'd it do in the race?

Waitadarnminute. Aren't the kids supposed to make their own car with help from dad? Between my son and daughter (for the girls, it's a "powderpuff" derby - very sexist, no?), I must have made 4 or 5 of these cars with them. Only one was a winner and none looked as cool as yours!
