Here are the finished pics of the first tiki. You can see the variance in the width of the piece from side to side. You can also see the back, which is mainly still bark and "natural"

Main shot:


One side:


Other side (note the chainsaw markings left in for character):


Another one (markings more clear in this one):


Rear of the little fella:


A proper shot of the club too.

Hewey,

He looks good. You may have said before, but how tall is this guy? It's time to get on to the next guy. Use what you've learned while making this guy to make your next one better.

Hewey, I love that club! I'm going to have to try making one someday for the old tiki bar wall. You're tiki is great too. I like the natural back and the depth in your cuts. On to the next!

Thnaks people! The little guy is about 11 inches tall. The next one is already half planned - a 2.5 footer cocos palm in Aarons Akua style, just a head. A lot of work in that one! But not till after I get back from the South Pacific..

He turned out nice, I'm glad you posted a front view, that we are so familiar with and then the side views. He is a lot thicker than what I assumed, nice to see the third dimension.

Next is a big tiki! 2.5 footer, could be very cool.

I'm all amped for some tiki creating. Ive been floating around the South Pacific for 2 weeks and seen all kinds of cool tiki stuff and havent even been able to get some tiki sketching down. They had art supplies, but only for a couple of hours on the boat. This was on the days we were on shore, which was just really frustrating. My only creative outlet was photography. Yeh, I got some cool shots. Look out for em one day when I get my crap together and post em.

Welcome back Hewey! I can't wait to see your pics of the islands. Also, get chopping on that new tiki. What wood are you using and what island style are you shooting for?
