I think we need a post that shows off carvings or other tiki stuff people on here have made. Too start off, here are the carvings I have done so far.




Id like to see others carving without having to search through a bunch of posts. Thanks!

Here's some of mine: The mask came about because I wanted a Tonga Roa just like the one on Night Of The Tiki but flatter. The large club is a short Atakara, or Cook Islands type of serrated club. The small, fat club is a Maori Kotiate, or disarming club. I like carving when I have time. It's not exactly relaxing but extremely rewarding in the end. Those are some cool tikis at the top of the thread!

P.S. The finish on the clubs was achieved by a slight charring with a blowtorch, a rub with potash, a wipedown and several coats of satin Deft. They still don't compare to the look of an original (of which I have one Maori club) but it's what I can afford.

here are a few flavors of the pacific.

This is a personal creation. a coconut wood carved mask.


this is a yipwan I made a while back. From the Sepik New Guinea area.








here we have a mixture of South Sea Arts. I combined a New Guinea mask on a tapa(bark cloth) shield from Samoa or the Fiji islands which is another big supplier of the beautiful art of Tapa.




In this picture as you see, I too like playing with bamboo! a frame for a album cover.


finally, I know it's not a tiki but I love to make things for tiki bars and what would a bar be without polynesian bathroom signs. I hate going into a bar and seeing those ugly blue plastic men/women tabs on the door! This makes the atmosphere more authentic.




ke brahddas an sistas, i get hungry so i gon grind already!

Shootz!

this is a psuedo carving/engraving of a hei-tiki maori style. They kinda reminnd me of little aliens. He's now my plant stand, I had a little stump left from another tiki im in the middle of carving so I just wanted to try to something different, not great but its getting easier and Im learn a bunch.

Here is a pair of Fijian Sali clubs I just carved.....big ones, about 4 feet long.This type of club was immortalized in a Trader Vic's swizzle stick. A little charring, sanding, and dark Brewax gives them that old look.
