Hey Mrtikibar. That tiki Rules! That last shot should be on the cover of something! Its got that Jungle voodoo thing working full strength. Nice work! be sure to seal in a virgin maidens blood! Goat juice will work in a pinch.
Boo-haa-haa-haa..........Brah.

Gecko and Jungle Trader, mahalo for your compliments! I love working small, its a challenge to get all those tiny details in there, and the results are rewarding! I do have four six foot by 2 foot diameter logs I have yet to start on... I am a bit timid about them still but, Gecko, as you said I will have to "get down an dirty in da ring wit em.

Tiki Freak... I use and old school tool called a drawblade to remove bark. If you keep 'em sharp they do the trick! And you can find them at flea markets for cheep...

Ok , here goes. I posted successfully on the testing site but the pictures are teeny weeny. Anyway, here ya go.

Second tiki I did.


This one I carved a few years ago in my living room.

This was a queen palm I carved a few years back that has slowly become a checking and cracking nightmare.

Uh oh, I think I just figured out why my pictures are dinky. Maybe these will be larger.


This one I carved about a month ago after a long hiatus from carving.

This guy was too heavy for me to lift. So envision him not lying onconcrete.


I'm going to stop, although I have more to post. I need to see if this sort of turns out.

Pretty darn good, huh guys? Boy do I feel better. I felt like I was sworn to secrecy not being able to show Tikifilles pictures. I really like the heavy one lying on the ground. Hey Dawna, do you have a name for any of them yet?

Gecko-yeah, rub it in. It's Friday night and I'm posting on tikicentral. Single.

Cool carvings peeps. If I missed anybody, that one is for y'all. Freak, I do the same as Gecko. Makes for some wide shoulders, you almost have to do it pissed off-like?

Enlargements of Tikifilles pictures.
This one is great!







Wish I could do some carving like you guys (and gal), but my artistry only goes as far as drawing "stickmen" with happyfaces, so instead of palm logs, I'd be scavaging for old broomsticks and round wood table tops.

A weapon should be worthy of the warrior, right? This is an Akatara (Cook Islands) I just finished for Gecko. It is six feet three inches long, carved in old growth black walnut and is a combination of three of this type of weapon that I have pictures of. It requires applying 44 individual serrated edges, 22 on each side...(boy, when those are done decorating the club is a pleasure!). The ancient design of these clubs is astonishingly effective, considering they are made of wood. Prior to finishing this one I took a single hard swipe at a 240-lb. corobond box, about the thickness of the skin on your knee, and this thing ripped a ghastly hole straight across it with ease (I have a picture I'll put on later). That said, this was done in the hands of a big, clumsy ass like me. Written history has it that indigenous war-wagers anywhere in the South Pacific were Samurai-like in their skill and discipline with their weapons. I could only imagine what kind of hell 3-or-4 hundred of these could unleash on a British or Dutch crew of 50 or 60 armed with muskets. You'd get the first shot off on the first wave of warriors and the second wave would be on you like a swarm of bees. Unlike the western invaders, they had no fear of death. You'd be (1) dead or (2) cut from stem to stern before you could even get your patch box open to load the second shot. Just ask James Cook! The small club pictured in the last shot is a simple Samoan type similar to ones that hang in groups in the Mai Kai and the now defunct hollywood Don The Beachcomber's.
